From the Wikipedia page, i've never liked Springsteen so i had no clue either... since i've heard the song like once.
"Born in the U.S.A." is a 1984 song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen. Taken from the album of the same name, it is one of his best-known singles. Rolling Stone ranked the song 275th on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time". In 2001, the RIAA's Songs of the Century placed the song 59th (out of 365). Lyrically, the song deals with the effects of the Vietnam War on Americans, although it is often misinterpreted as a patriotic or nationalistic anthem.

I've seen Ke$ha live and enjoyed the hell out of her performance, but I also have a Swans album cover as my avatar because they're one of my favorite bands. People like what they like and no one should try to force their musical opinions on anyone else. This guy's just a boring dad-rocker.

As for the guy's article in the link; most people will buy what is marketed to them. It's why something like this will chart on a "Hot 100 Singles" list but something like this will be avoided by all but passionate music fans that love obscure stuff. Bottom line, musicians that do it for the money sell more than musicians that do it for the art; even though musicians that do it for the art make better songs and albums.
