It's nothing new for musicians to take a crack at Springsteen's songs, but through his resurgence in popularity and influence over the last few years even more artists are covering the Boss.
I guess his tunes are so damned fun to sing. And since the original versions are all so identifiable they immediately take on new life when performed by a different artist. It probably doesn't hurt either that a lot of his work can be quite dated by their production styles - especially his 80s stuff.
Anyways, here are my favorites from the last few years...
Kurt Vile - "Downbound Train"
The Hold Steady - "Atlantic City"
Tortoise and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - "Thunder Road"
Camera Obscura - "Tougher than the Rest"
Marissa Nadler - "The River"
Vampire Weekend - "I'm Going Down"
Julian Casablancas - "Dancing in the Dark"
Tegan and Sara - "Dancing in the Dark"
Honorable mention to the National's "Mansion on the Hill" and Arcade Fire's "State Trooper". I think these newer takes definitely hold up to some of the classic Bruce covers like Johnny Cash's "I'm on Fire" or David Bowie's "It's Hard to be a Saint in the City", and of course Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Born to Run".
