    This Day In History - 1984 Bruce Springsteen releases “Pink Cadillac”

    Bruce Springsteen releases “Pink Cadillac” - May 04, 1984 - HISTORY.com

    On this day in 1984, New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen releases “Pink Cadillac” as a B-side to “Dancing in the Dark,” which will become the first and biggest hit single off “Born in the U.S.A.,” the best-selling album of his career.

    Springsteen, who got his start playing in bar bands on the New Jersey shore, won a contract with Columbia Records in 1972. With the release of his third album, “Born to Run” (1975), Springsteen was touted as the new face of rock ‘n’ roll in America, and he appeared on the cover of both Time and Newsweek that year. Though “Born to Run” contained no breakout hits, tracks such as “Thunder Road,” “Tenth Avenue Freezeout” and the title track all got heavy radio airplay. In 1980, Springsteen scored his first real hit single, “Hungry Heart,” off his fourth album, “The River.” Outside the recording studio, he had become known for playing marathon live shows with his E Street Band.
