    Always will be one of my favorite Bruce albums. Dark, simple, cruel and perfect. I learned and still play each of these songs on my guitar. Personally, I liken the album to the musical equivalent of The Grapes of Wrath.

    Here's a poem inspired by Nebraska and Earnest Hemminway's The Killers Shake It Up Forget the logistics when I'm Tucumcari. Hit some Indian bars. Lay up with some homegrown girl. Buzz round the flowers, Get my drift. Shouldn't shot up that place in West Texas. I knew that old lady scream for sure. Floyd, You done messed up again.Fucking half wit, I took my chances. Fuck it anyhow. Shake it up. Run Arizona Like a sidewinder slim, Get you back to par By California. Fuck the furlough jim, I got Cobol On my mind. Ah- clean you Up for down there. It's all Black and white to guys Like us. Let's hit this place, I gotta leak. Let's go numb nuts. The women drip class down there. Long ladies With a taste for the Finer things. You know Who's got a plan? That's Right you retard, I got a plan. A fucking can't miss. If bot will ask questions later. You get my drift Copernicus. We're tied to The wheel my brother. Shit, we was tied when We popped out that old lady. Only we didn't know it then. Your to dumb to notice, And I'm to tired to care. Let's roll. By TJ STRUSKA

    I bought Nebraska on vinyl from the only record store in our town. I still remember flipping through albums in the bins and when I came across Nebraska there was something about that cover that I had to buy it. I wasn't even aware of Springsteen at the time. I took it home and just loved it. It was so stark and hauntingly beautiful. The lyrics told stories and with my vivid imagination they really came to life. It had a big impact on me. Years later I would go on to write and record music of my own. My first release, Back From Gone, was chock full of songs that told stories. I wanted people to be taken for a ride like I was when I heard those songs on Nebraska so many years before.

      Not really. They both use the same I, IV, and V chords but that's pretty common. There are literally thousands of other songs that use the same three chords. But that's pretty much where the similarity ends between this song & Guthrie's song. They both have the same three chords but have a different progression. This Land starts on the IV chord, this song starts on the V chord.

    Watched a documentary about Bruce a few years ago, it said that the basic old school home type tape he recorded the album on fell off his kayak and ended up at the bottom of a lake! He retrieved it and attempted to re record the album in a studio but could not match the feel so the tape that ended up in the lake is essentially what you hear!!!

      Yes, James, the whole age-old problem magnificently distilled into a few short words. Despite the best efforts of the pseudo-intellectual analysts (who have carved lucrative careers for themselves by offering solutions that turn into dust) the simple fact is that there have always been, and always will be, nice people in this world and bastards. The big mistake is to try to understand and psychoanalyse the bastards. Don't waste valuable time and money - just remove them from the planet.

      You are correct, Heather. My mother and father grew up in small, Nebraska towns and were teenagers when Charlie and Caril went on their infamous crime spree. Farmers formed shotgun wielding posse's looking for the two of them. It was a crazy ordeal that had the entire state in panic mode until they were finally caught. I graduated from Lincoln High School in Lincoln, where Charlie attended and eventually dropped out. Though obviously at different times

      Elizabeth Smisek it actually has a LOT to do with Nebraska... the song is about Charles Starkweather who along with his young girlfriend Caril Fugate , from Lincoln Nebraska went on a killing spree in 1958 murdering eleven people beginning with Caril's parents and 2 yr old baby sister. They went on the run killing ppl along their way through Nebraska to Wyomimg, and baffling the police. They were finally caught in the badlands of Wyoming and Charles Starkweather went to the electric chair.

  • Kat Welander

    My Granddad had the desk of the gas station attendant who was killed by Starkweather, where Starkweather, after killing the gas station attendant, put his feet up on the desk, smoked a Lucky Strike cigarette and then put it out on the desk. My father still has it to this very day. Its very chilling to even walk past the desk sometimes.
