Bruce Springsteen Collaborates With Dropkick Murphys

(Radio.com) Bruce Springsteen has collaborated with the punk rock band Dropkick Murphys on a single that will raise funds for the Boston Marathon bombing victims. Springsteen connected with the Boston band for a re-recording of their song "Rose Tattoo."

"Bruce actually called us up the day of the bombing and asked what he could do to help," Dropkick Murphys guitarist James Lynch told Springsteen fan site Backstreets. "We didn't have to reach out. He was there for us."

While Springsteen has long been a very mainstream stadium headliner, this isn't the first time he has crossed paths with punk rock bands.

Bruce has rubbed elbows with punk rockers for decades: in the '70s, he co-wrote punk icon Patti Smith's biggest hit, "Because The Night." A few years later, the late Joey Ramone asked Bruce to write a song for The Ramones. Springsteen came up with "Hungry Heart," which his manager convinced him to keep for himself. more on this story
