Rolling Stone Live: The Greenhornes Go Acoustic

Garage rockers debut rare song at the Rolling Stone offices

December 30, 2010 2:52 PM ET

Cincinnati, Ohio-based garage rockers the Greenhornes recently dropped by the Rolling Stone offices to play an impromptu acoustic set. (So impromptu, in fact, that drummer Patrick Keeler keeps the beat on a cardboard box.) The trio, who've been together in some form since high school, performed a few tracks from their brand new album, titled ****, as well as "Hold Me," a cut from their debut album from 1999 and "The Remains" (a.k.a. "But I Ain't Got You"), a rare EP track that they have never before played in public.

“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.”
