“The Rising” is the song Bruce Springsteen wrote in response to the Sept. 11 attack/tragedy/horror. It was released on the CD of the same name, which contained reflections on different aspects of 9-11. “The Rising” was Springsteen’s 12th studio album, the first he had recorded in seven years, and his first with the E Street Band since 1984’s “Born in the U.S.A.”
The critically acclaimed CD debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart, and earned Springsteen three Grammy Awards—for Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Male Rock Performance.
