New old music from Superchunk - "Born to Run" (Bruce Springsteen cover)

The 40th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's classic 1975 album Born to Run was earlier this week and local indie rock icons Superchunk dug up a live cover of the album's title track to mark the occasion.

Their version of "Born to Run" was recorded in 2000 when Superchunk was on tour with ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead and Crooked Fingers. They closed each show with everyone on stage covering the song, including Eric Bachmann playing Clarence Clemons' classic saxophone solo. Check out it below.

Mac McCaughan of Superchunk will be playing the Hopscotch Music Festival in a couple of weeks. His set will be at the Lincoln Theatre at 9:30 on Thursday, September 10.
