Has The Boss lost his mind?!?

Per this press release:

Bruce Springsteen's album doesn't hit stores until April 25th but listeners have an exclusive opportunity to listen to the album in its entirety on-demand beginning today. Clear Channel Radio is the only place to catch a "Sneak Peek" of Bruce Springsteen's latest album, We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. This online exclusive will be available on 390 Clear Channel Radio station Web sites!

Yes, you're reading that correctly. Bruce Springsteen (the blue collar hero and the working man's friend) has teamed up with 17 folk musicians to put out an album of Pete Seeger (counter-culture icon, blacklisted socialist, anti-war and environmental activist) songs. And it's being released (initially) only to Clear Channel Stations.

It seems clear that The Boss has lost his mind (to say nothing of his working man roots and, perhaps, credibility). I hereby move that we start a fundraising effort to get The Boss the help he so desperately needs.
