Free Listen & Download of “Thunder Road: A Folk-Punk Tribute to Bruce Springsteen”

A new Bruce Springsteen tribute CD takes a folk-punk approach to many of the singer-songwriter’s songs, including “Thunder Road,” “Lucky Town,” “Radio Nowhere,” and “Born in the U.S.A.” The album, entitled Thunder Road: A Folk-Rock Tribute to Bruce Springsteen, features performers such as Cactus Vella, The Matchup, Jon Creeden, and Jesse LeBourdais.

My favorite tracks include Swissknife’s “The Wrestler,” Jon Creeden’s “Atlantic City,” and The Matchup’s version of “Radio Nowhere.” An unusual and delightful sing-along version of “I’m On Fire” by Choir!Choir!Choir is worth checking out. So listen to the album below.

If you like what you hear, Anxiety Attack Records has made the music available for free download. If you like the music and want it to keep, just use the “Download” button at the top of the player. Or you may download individual tracks at the Anxiety Attack Records website.
