#BrucetheDebate: Springsteen Lyrics Used to Highlight Trump-Clinton Debate

When a New York City radio station suggested using Bruce Springsteen lyrics to pair with live-tweeting Wednesday night's presidential debate, it seemed as if the internet was born to run with it.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's final face-off produced a number of "Boss"-inspired tweets featuring lyrics playing off of what the candidates were saying.

WNYC radio host Brian Lehrer asked Twitter users to take up his challenge with the hashtag #BrucetheDebate — a request that was even acknowledged by Springsteen's official Twitter account.

Here are some of the more rousing song lyrics matching the mood of the debate:

From "It's a Shame":

From "Atlantic City":

From "Devils & Dust":

From "Rocky Ground":

From "Tunnel of Love":
