“Heart's All Gone”

Blink-182 | 2011

Blink-182 included "Heart’s All Gone" on their long-awaited album "Neighborhoods," which was their first set of new music in eight years. The album featured several songs that displayed a different sound than they had created in the past, but they added this song to remind their fans they were still the same band. "We released 'Heart's All Gone' to go 'Hey, there's a few things on the record that if you only want nostalgic stuff from us, it's still there,'" frontman Tom DeLonge explained.

“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.”
