Nebraska (album)

Nebraska is a heartland rock album by Bruce Springsteen, released on September 20, 1982 (see 1982 in music). The album was a critical success in spite of a lukewarm public reception. Springsteen had recorded the album in a studio with a full band and then decided not to release it, instead submitting his demo tape of the same songs. The album ended up being one of the most well-reviewed and -remembered records in his catalogue.

Nebraska peaked at #3 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, and #174 on the Billboard 200 chart.
