Since Bruce Springsteen was going to be playing the Super Bowl and couldn't be on his show, Letterman went out and got the best Springsteen-influenced punk band, The Gaslight Anthem, to perform on his show on Friday. The New Jersey band played "The '59 Sound," and Letterman was super-stoked afterwards, saying "My god that was good" and "that's tremendous" over and over again.
The Gaslight Anthem's The '59 Sound is out now via SideOneDummy. [via Stereogum]
