Watch Bruce Springsteen Jam with Social Distortion in New Jersey

On Saturday night Bruce Springsteen jumped onstage with Social Distortion during their set at the inaugural Sea.Hear.Now festival in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The Boss played three songs with the band: their 1992 classic, “Bad Luck” (for which Springsteen ripped a searing solo); “Misery Loves Company,” the 1999 solo track from Social D. leader Mike Ness, which Bruce also guested on for the studio version; and a punked-up cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire.”
