The Ghost of Tom Joad

Thanks to RawStory.com for the following...

America's finest rock poet Bruce Springsteen (no offense, Bob Dylan) and the greatest guitarist of the last 20 years Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave team up with The E Street Band on the Boss' classic protest song, inspired by the character Tom Joad from the film version of John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath:


And, as a bonus, Henry Fonda's famous "I'll be there" speech from John Ford's The Grapes of Wrath (1940):

"Waterloo Sunset"
The Kinks

And for the Def Leppard cover version:

Last but not least:

"Born This Way"
Lady Gaga
