Born to Run

Born to Run is a rock music album by singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released on August 25, 1975 (see 1975 in music). His third album, Born to Run was Springsteen's breakthrough hit and launched his career in United States and around the world. His first album to feature Roy Bittan and Max Weinberg, Born to Run was preceeded by hype due to overwhelming critical acclaim. While his previous two albums, Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J and The Wild, the Innocent & the E-Street Shuffle, received good reviews, popular success had been scarce; Born to Run cemented Springsteen's reputation among critics and established his first mainstream fanbase.

Upon release, the album peaked at number 3 on the Billboard album chart and spent over two years in the top 100 selling albums. In 2003, Born to Run was ranked as the number 1 most popular album in the first Zagat Survey Music Guide.
