Bruce Springsteen now says he shouldnt have made a deal to sell his greatest hits CD exclusively at Wal-Mart.
Fans criticized The Boss because Wal-Mart has been accused of unfair labor practices. Springsteen, on the other hand, has always supported workers rights.
It was a mistake, Springsteen said. Our...

I wouldn’t even download his crappy music why in the hell would I pay for it.
Not watching Springsteen. On here on FR.
I wouldn’t buy any of his cd’s, period!
The question to ask Springsteen is what, exactly, changed with Walmart from the time he willingly signed the deal, and today?
Of course, nothing has changed. He is just not a very thoughtful man.
I beat you to THAT about 30 years ago.
I don't need no steenkin' halftime show. I didn't even watch the wardrobe malfunction a few years ago.
I’m doing him a favor right now. I just flipped over to “Cops” for the Halftime Show. I imagine these cop guys are union members. ;o)
I’m here because it’s halftime, and he’s there.
I do not have an album that he made. Will never own an album that he made. Never.
Just switched to another channel during this bastards half-time show
Oh, is he the guy I just tuned out of the 1/2 time show for?
Actually, I’m quite stunned that Walmart didn’t immediately clear all of his CD’s off the rack, take the hit on the loss and give Bruce an even larger lesson in how to operate business.
Now that....that would have been priceless!
Turned off the Super Bowl till the second half - watching the puppy bowl for 30 minutes. Currently the kittens are on, too bad they are playing music instead of letting us kear kitty sounds - the particular sound of belching out a hairball is an improvement over mister gravel voice. Plus the cats and dogs are more intelligent then “the Boss”.
I am not watching that POS on the halftime.
Same here. If he walked up to my front door and handed me one of his CDs, I still wouldn't listen to it....
After I found out what his politcs were, circa 1980. He joined my boycott list.
He’s made nothing but elevator music since 1982. Clarence Clemons, The Big Man, now that’s a musician.
i wasn’t going to buy his CD anyway.
turned off super bowl half-time, to watch a documentary on nathans hot dogs.
Even if you liked him I wouldn’t buy the CD - we’re watching the halftime show right now and his voice is completely SHOT.
ole bruce looks old as heck,,he is fat and I keep hoping he doesn’t have a heart attack during his show.
Little Stevie looks fat but I love him from Sopranoes.
I did go to the web site of our local nbc tv. They have a good clip of the ice storm.
Your suggestion shows more imagination than Springsteen ever did in his entire career as a “working man’s spokesman.”
I can hear him from a distance...off key and whiny as always, LOL! I just asked Husband why they can’t find any NEW artists for the half-time shows. ;)
I’m here for a Sanity Break. :)
That last quarter ended with one of the best football plays I’ve seen in a very long time. Glad #92 is OK. :)
Hey, I like Nathan’s hot dogs. We finally have them locally. Before, I just got them in airports.
I am doing him a favor now, by watching the Simpsons.
Screw the Boss, he’s just another singing moonbat.
Oh, years ago, I had every Springsteen album.
Eventually, I had to stop listening to him because his lyrics were so depressing — you know, the plant closed, my girl left me.
I’m here to help. I’ll buy ammo instead.
I was a huge fan once upon a time. These days, he’s dead to me.
Oh don’t worry. He has been off my “buy” list for years.
Another couple of years and he'll look like Ayers..
Yeah.... It’s unfortunate because he makes good music. But he just uses the fame and fortune to be a moonbat. Can’t support that.
But I like “Glory Days” :)
But the band is great.... the songs rock, have a great groove, and it works..... until he talks politics.
I’m sure you did, but I’m sure you didn’t write it as cleverly. :)
Tell Bruce not to worry, I would not take his CD, free. He sucks. Watching CSI for now.
working mans spokesman.
Of course working man’s spokeman is essentially a union leader so, it makes sense he has no imagination other than to blame others for any of his failures...
“...and I keep hoping he doesnt have a heart attack during his show.”
I kept thinking that, too! I was listening for the ‘thud’ from the other room. ;)
I grew up on the Jersey shore (same age as Bruce). When young, he was not very political. But once he married the Phillips woman and moved to LA, he changed. He went from a clumsy kid from Highway 9 to movie star favorite.
I haven’t listed to him since “The River.” His music had leftist overtones (ala Woody Guthrie), but he didn’t emerge as a symbol of liberalism until Hollywood turned his.
Another millionaire liberal, willing to give away everyone else’s money.
I used to like him before he became political. Don’t get me wrong, he has the right to support whom he wants to support and to say what he wants to say. But once you come out and say how useless the president is, and insult him, then you run the risk of offending 46% of your potential audience.
Every time an artist starts spewing hatred towards people I support, that’s one more checked off my list. I don’t get rid of what I paid for, but I don’t spend another penny.
My list is long.
tomorrow morning, watch all of the commercials back to back on the internet.
I gotta say....I used to be a Springsteen fan in the ‘80’s and I was thoroughly disappointed in his performance. Either his voice is worn out or my hearing has changed, but he sucks.
I remember him going tooth and nail after tee-shirt vendors using his image. Legally correct, but I thought it peculiar that this man of the working class would go after those poor guys.
I don’t make the mistake of buying anything by Springsteen.
