The Boss 'voices' anger at TrumpCentral Station | 21 Apr 2017
Rock legend Bruce Springsteen has denounced US President Donald Trump as a "conman"' as he collaborated on a new protest song.
Joe Grushecky, a rocker who has worked in the past with Springsteen, has titled his song That's What Makes Us Great, a play on Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again."
The song halfway features The Boss singing verses on his own. "Don't you brag to me that you never read a book / I never put my faith in a conman and his crooks," Springsteen sings in clear reference to Trump.
Springsteen and Grushecky come together for a chorus that urges mobilization against Trump. "It's up to me and you/Love can conquer hate/I know this to be true/That's what makes us great," they sing.
While the song is not his own, it marks some of the most overtly political lyricism of Springsteen's career.
