I knew Rage covered this song, but I had never heard the Springsteen version until this tournament. I liked it a lot, probably more than the Rage version which I loved.

I'm not too excited about either. The Cornell one is good, but lacks replayability. And for a Rage song, that's kind of boring.

Hey Jude has a clear path.

Folksy Bruce is my favorite Bruce (practically the only Bruce for me). He's got some wonderful guitar face there, but I like the acoustic/harmonica album version much better.
