This week, one of the most misunderstood songs of all time turned 30 years old. Bruce Springteen's "Born in the U.S.A." was released with its eponymous album on June 4, 1984, before becoming one of the Boss's most popular songs.

With such a chorus and an album cover, the song was bound to be misinterpreted as an American patriotic hymn by some, including expand=1] then President Ronald Reagan. But "Born in the U.S.A." is in fact a song about Vietnam War veterans returning to a country where the working-class is abandonned and isolated.

The track was a global hit and peaked in several different charts. An acoustic version was also recorded for the 1998 box set Tracks.
