Re: i$e's Magical Music Megapost
One of my friends turned me on to them. He didn't listen to Springsteen at the time (I changed that soon enough), but he got me to listen to them since he knew I was a fan and because of the whole Springsteen influence. Fell in love with them pretty much from the jump. Red at Night off of Sink or Swim is what did it, IIRC. God damn that song is fucking tremendous.
