Cover Of The Week: RATM does The Boss

I remember how psyched I was when I purchased a special edition VHS (gasp!) Rage Against The Machine live show about 10 years ago that came with a bonus CD single. The single was a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "The Ghost Of Tom Joad", and I couldn't wait to hear the boys in RATM tackle Bruce's acoustic gem. As one might expect, it sounds nothing like the original, with the band putting its own unique spin on the tune. Now you can find this cover on Rage's Renegades album, among other places, but back in the day this was a rarity.
