    When 62-year-old New Jersey treasure Bruce Springsteen was asked about his nickname "The Boss," he told VH1 radio that its genesis began with the people who worked for him early on.

    "It started with people who worked for me. It was not meant like ‘the boss with a capital B,' it was more like 'the boss where's my dough this week?,'" he laughed. "It was sort of like that and it was sort of out of a friendly, I guess it was from the band, it was just a term among friends. It's funny because I never really liked it. I still, I never really liked it."

    Do you think "The Boss" is a good nickname for Bruce Springsteen?
