I cannot believe this isn't a national holiday! Why are we at work?! Bruce Springsteen's legendary and influential breakthrough album, Born To Run, was released 40 years ago today. Our own Craig Manning wrote a neat 40-year retrospective about the perfect record (and I did my own retro review years ago, which isn't as good as Craig's, in a series where I reviewed all 16 of Springsteen's records at the time), and The Atlantic also has a long feature about the album. Please join me in celebrating this holy day in the replies. Additionally, if you've never listened to this album, I very highly encourage you to listen to the thing in its entirety today. "Thunder Road" is the best song of all...

Every year, I get one email from one person asking me to make a post on AP.net about their birthday. That person is Gunz from The Gunz Show and today is his birthday. Today is also Jack Barakat's birthday, and he got an early birthday present this year when All Time Low's Future Hearts was the best-selling album in the world, so you shouldn't feel the need to go shopping for him now. Good job to both of these people for surviving one more year.

Today is Bruce Springsteen's 65th birthday which should be a national holiday to be honest. He still has more energy on stage than many 20-somethings I see perform today. Discuss this in the replies.
