Hey Celtics, that's a pretty nice song by Bon Iver.

I love this song by the guy from Jersey. I think this is Springsteen at its best.

The Chicken man that Bruce talks about in the song was this guy here.

Testa was one of the baddest guys in Philadelphia in the 1980s. When Bruce talks about the racket boys and trouble bustin in from outta state, he is talking about the Philly mob taking over Atlantic city during the 80s. The song is also about the danger involved in associating yourself (taking a job) with the mob. Very good song by Bruce S.

Bo

Edit: Found a better version.
