Released: August 1975

The Boss was going for the "greatest rock'n'roll record ever" and who's to say he didn't pull it off? A blend of innuendo – "strap your hands across my engines" – runaway sax from Clarence Clemons and full Wall Of Sound cacophony from the E Street Band, 'Born To Run' is a chest-bursting tour de force that even survived a Frankie Goes To Hollywood cover.
