** He's also a big fan of Creator/ChristopherTitus and his TV show, LiveActionTV/{{Titus}}, which according to Titus in his special ''Voice In My Head'', he thought was a cut above most sitcoms and called it art. This apparently sent Titus's [[ItMakesSenseInContext inner retard]] into fits of laughter and calling John Cougar Mellencamp a much better artist.

* BigNameFan: Being one of the most prominent singer-songwriters in America, Bruce not surprisingly has quite a few. Special mention goes to fellow New Jerseyans Creator/JonStewart (who spoke in Bruce's honor when Bruce was being honored at the 2009 Kennedy Center Awards) and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has attended ''more than 129'' Spingsteen concerts and fanboys about Springsteen frequently. It's been said that Governor Christie had a huge fanboy reaction when Springsteen--in the wake of shared relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy--told Christie "Okay, we are officially friends." (This is kind of interesting, since Springsteen is well noted as being very liberal and a solid supporter of the Democrats--and gets ''super'' annoyed when Republicans use his music--while Christie is a Republican and as conservative as you can get and get elected in New Jersey. But then--it's clear both love their home state, so it really shouldn't be surprising.)
** Bruce himself is apparently this for the Literature/HarryPotter novels, and even wrote a ballad about Harry, and tried to get it into the movies, being unsuccessful only because of Harry Potter novelist/creator JK Rowling's contractual stipulation that no commercial songs of any type be used in the Harry Potter film series.

** "The Ghost of Tom Joad" is now probably better known in the rather different Music/RageAgainstTheMachine version.

* 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]].
