A lot of people hold Bruce Springsteen and his breakthrough album Born To Run close to their hearts. It is a tremendous album. An instant classic. A masterpiece. It can make a grown man weep. It can make a sociopath feel real human things. The first track, "Thunder Road," is 4 minutes and 49 seconds of musical perfection and it's weird that more people haven't named their children after it. Who amongst us wouldn't want to be named Thunder Road? Listen to the Boss perform it in 1975, around the time the album was released.

Now every time you hear this song, arguably the best song in the giant catalog of American rock songs, you're going to think of Chris Christie. Chris Christie as a young boy kicking the dirt and wondering why coach won't just let him in at the bottom of the 9th when they're up by 5. Chris Christie at 16-years-old, cruising down the main drag of Whereverville, NJ, lookin' for some tail. Chris Christie, now a young man in his 20s, taking a shot of Midori as he readies to walk down the aisle. Chris Christie, driving out of Newark with the windows rolled down, bellowing, "It's a town full of losers and I'm pulling out of here to win!" Chris Christie, sweating and alone awaiting confirmation of his appointment under the direction of George Bush. Chris Christie rubbing his palms together and coming up with new lies behind his mahogany desk. Chris Christie looking in the mirror, pumping himself up for world domination. You get the idea, Chris Christie doesn't do anything without listening to The Boss, no matter what anyone, not even THE BOSS, says.

Today, on the 40th anniversary of its release, Chris Christie had to make that album about him. In a single, longform tweet, he ruined it all. Thanks, Chris Christie.

Couldn't he have just stuck to Bon Jovi?
