Bruce Springsteen, now 65, is New Jersey's favorite son. He is also known as "The Boss." Why is that?
It's simple, actually.
"It started with people who worked for me," the legend told VH1 Classic Radio. "It was not meant like 'The Boss' with a capital B; it was more like, 'The boss...where's my dough this week?' 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."
But we like it! Bruce is boss and The Boss.
What is your favorite song by, well, The Boss?
