Live Gig Video: Bruce Springsteen covers Van Halen’s ‘Jump’ in Dallas at March Madness Fest

By on Monday, 7th April 2014 at 4:00 pm

Last week we posted this awesome cover of a Kanye West song by London’s Glass Animals while they were recently in Sydney, Australia, performing for triplej radio. Unfortunately, like all things in life, not all covers are created equal.

Bruce Springsteen has taken to doing covers at his live shows as of late and well, he is the Boss, and he can do what he wants, yeah? He was in Dallas this past weekend to perform at the March Madness Fest in Dallas, Texas, and he caught everyone off guard by doing this reinterpretation of Van Halen’s ‘Jump’. Say what you want about Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth, but I think you’ll agree the original is the way to go after feeling the discomfort of this cover. I suppose he felt that since it was a basketball-themed event, he had to come up with a cover that was peripherally related to the sport? Cringe. Watch it below.
