Yeah, that whole Born in the USA thing had, from my perspective, such a bizarre result. It is nowhere near his best album, but was a huge seller. The title song introduced a generation to his work and ended up being appropriated by Reagan during his campaign for re-election despite being a truly depressing anti-government, anti-war, anti-hope song.

I can understand the reaction to him from people who really just know that album, but there is so much more out there. Sounds like you guys know that, though. And quit knocking middle-age, I'll be there soon, and so will you bastards before you know it.
