He's know as The Boss thanks to his many hits Dancing In The Dark, Born To Run and I'm On Fire.
Yet, Bruce Springsteen has revealed he nearly gave up his one of his most iconic anthems Born In The USA, admitting he believed t it was too insincere.
Speaking at a Q&A session with Tom Hanks at the Tribeca Film Festival, the 67-year-old rocker opened up to the Oscar-winning actor, insisting that it was E Street Band guitarist Stevie Van Zandt who convinced him to keep the 1984 hit.

Speaking out: Bruce Springsteen has revealed he nearly gave up his one of his most iconic anthems Born In The USA, admitting he believed t it was too insincere

Springsteen's memorable tune was written in part tribute to friends who had served in the American Army during the Vietnam War and the ironic treatment of the veterans upon their return home.  
He divulged: 'Stevie [Van Zandt, longtime guitarist in the E Street Band] convinced me to keep that song. 


'I remember at the time thinking it's too glib. It's too glib. I think I still think that. But Stevie said, "No, no, no – it's about the band, the brotherhood of the band, the fans."
The New Jersey native - who has been married to Patti Scialfa since 1991 - added that he gave his musical peer the 'benefit of the doubt' but still doesn't quite comfortable with the song.

Adding: 'I gave him the benefit of the doubt. We've played it an awful lot ever since. But I was always a little frightened of it. And the whole record I always have mixed feelings about.'
Despite his feelings, the epochal song has received much praise throughout the years and was ranked 275th on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time as well as placed on RIAA's Songs of the Century. 

The fan favourite and title track of his 1984 album of the same name inspired famed photographer Annie Leibovitz's iconic photo of Springsteen's backside against the backdrop of an American flag for the record cover. 
Commenting on the concept in 1984, the Medal of Freedom recipient told Rolling Stone: 'We had the flag on the cover because the first song was called "Born in the U.S.A.", and the theme of the record kind of follows from the themes I've been writing about for at least the last six or seven years.

'Benefit of the doubt': The New Jersey native - who has been married to Patti Scialfa (Pictured above) since 1991 - added that he gave his musical peer the 'benefit of the doubt' but still doesn't quite comfortable with the song

'But the flag is a powerful image, and when you set that stuff loose, you don't know what's gonna be done with it.'
During his hour long chat with Academy Award winner Hanks, Bruce discussed his life and early career with stories that he spoke about in his recent memoir Born To Run. 
Opening up about his climb to the top, Bruce revealed that in the early days while playing gigs where ever he could when he was broke meant he never paid taxes.

Having avoided bills for so many years, he added that when he made it, he spent all most all his earnings on paying off debs.   
He continued at the Q&A: 'In 1980, I think I had about $20,000 to my name - which sounded like a lot of money when I was 20, but when you're 30 and you've been doing this for a while...
'But most people's early careers are a mess. When you get in the music business, the cards are stacked in favor of the business and they're stacked against the musicians.'

La vidéo n'est pas terrible mais elle semble complète.
