** "The Ghost of Tom Joad" is now was probably better known in the rather different Music/RageAgainstTheMachine version.version for a long time... and then things went full circle on ''High Hopes'', where Morello joined Springsteen for a new version that sounds somewhere between the two and got significant airplay.

* ValuesResonance: "American Skin (41 Shots)" sounds like something that could have been released in the mid 2010s in response to the Black Lives Matter movement and the various controversial police shootings that made the news around that time. In actuality, it was released in 2001, in response to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Amadou_Diallo a single controversial shooting]].

-->I remember coming home after I had been gone for three days, walking in the kitchen and my mother and father were sitting there and my dad said "where you been?" I said "[[TheVietnamWar I went to take my physical]]" He said "What happened?" I said "They didn't take me" And he said "That's good".

* HarsherInHindsight: 1974's "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)," often simply called "Sandy," gained a distinctly dark undertone when Hurricane Sandy completely trashed Asbury Park in 2012 (although that happened closer to Halloween than the 4th). Sensitive to this, Bruce pointedly did not play that song at the post-Hurricane Sandy benefit concert that December.
