Achtung, Springsteen vinyl & magazine collectors! Win something special from ROLLING STONE Germany!

April 26, 2024

Rolling Stone Germany is getting a bit of a jump on celebrating Born in the U.S.A.'s fortieth anniversary, with Bruce Springsteen's all-time-best-selling album having been released officially on June 4, 1984. As you can see above, the May 2024 issue's cover story is entitled "Der lang Weg zu 'Born In The U.S.A.'" ("The Long Way to 'Born In The U.S.A.'") The issue also comes packaged with a world-exclusive 7" vinyl picture-sleeve reissue of the album's first single, "Dancing In The Dark" b/w the album-outtake "Pink Cadillac," which of course also will soon turn the big 4-0, having been released officially on May 9, 1984, becoming Springsteen's all-time-best-selling single. This vinyl reissue is available only with the May 2024 issue of Rolling Stone Germany. You can click here to order a copy.

Or... you could win one from us! Thanks to our friends at Rolling Stone Germany, we have three copies to raffle off randomly to three separate, lucky winners. (Once you've won one of the copies, you're automatically out of the running to win one of the other two copies.)

You can enter this special raffle in two ways. First, you automatically will be entered one time for each dollar you place in our "tip jar" between now and 11:59 p.m. ET next Friday, May 3, 2024. Donate $10 and get 10 chances to win, donate $25 and get 25 chances to win, etc. Please click here to "tip" us, and thank you very much for your support.

You also can receive one (and only one) free raffle entry by correctly answering this trivia question: According to Springsteen biographer and music-writer Dave Marsh, after Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band played their first Germany concert on April 7, 1981, the late, great concert promoter Fritz Rau approached Springsteen backstage and asked him with a smile, "What have you done to my Germans?" What was Springsteen's reply? Email your trivia-question answer to All persons who send an email message with the correct answer will receive one (and only one) free raffle entry per person/account.

After the raffle-entry period closes next Friday, three lucky winners will be randomly selected from the pool of all raffle entrants. Each lucky winner will receive one copy of Rolling Stone Germany's May 2024 issue with the world-exclusive 7" vinyl picture-sleeve reissue of "Dancing In The Dark" b/w the album-outtake "Pink Cadillac," as pictured above. Should any entrant's name happen to be selected randomly more than once, another and different name will be selected randomly in their stead, in order to ensure that there will be a total of three separate winners, each of them winning one copy of the raffle prize.

Good luck to all entrants, and thanks again to our friends at Rolling Stone Germany!
