Few artists have more dodgy-sounding live bootlegs on the market than Iggy Pop. Thankfully, Iggy himself sorted through three decades of tapes to assemble this killer four-disc package. The first CD features material from Pop's legendary 1977 tour with Bowie on keyboards, and you can hear the Thin White Duke wailing in the background. Iggy's 1990s backing band is less impressive, but it can still bash its way through "Louie Louie," and his lone hit, "Candy," with great skill. Best of all are the Stooges reunion gigs from 2003: They're proof that nobody else can play those songs like the guys who wrote them.

    “Long Walk Home”

    Bruce Springsteen | 2007

    When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
