Born In The U.S.A was the seventh studio album by American singer/songwriter Bruce Springsteen and was released on the 7th June 1984. The album is often regarded as one of the Boss’s best, the album spawned a massive seven singles including ‘Dancing In The Dark’, ‘Glory Days’ and the title track.

The album continued the tradition of featuring the E Street Band and provided the band with many classic hits which are still fan favourites over 30 years later.

The album was a far cry from Springsteen’s previous album Nebraska with a more upbeat feel. The album helped to popularise the blue collar anthem that would become staples of artists such as Tom Petty, John Mellencamp and Bryan Adams.

The album is not only famous for its songs as the album cover featuring Springsteen’s backside against the American flag became one of the most controversial and iconic images in music history.

The album shot to number 1 all over the world and has sold around 13.5 million records in the United States alone.
