The Boss (often compared to Dylan) also “goes electric”

On his song “Growin’ Up,” Bruce Springsteen sang about his (adolescent) rebellion with lyrics like “…when they said, ‘Sit down,’ I stood up …”

So it was probably no surprise to MTV when, on Sept. 22, 1992, The Boss showed up for a taping of the “MTV Unplugged” concert series in Los Angeles and pulled a Dylan-at-the-Newport-Folk-Festival-esque surprise by “going electric.” Springsteen’s concert performance, which eventually ran on the network in November, was re-titled “MTV Plugged.”
