5. "Lion's Den"
Grabbing lyrics from the Hebrew Bible's Book of Daniel, "Lion's Den" was one of the earliest – and lightest – recordings cut for Born in the U.S.A. Eventually, Springsteen came to regret not giving it a proper release, saying in 1998, "I should have put that out! Why didn't I put that out? It sounds like a hit now. The band is playing great and the horns come in and it has a great chorus."
