So you’ve decided to convert your garage into a bitchin auto shop and you want to do it to a montage of Bruce Springsteen songs like in a movie. Awesome! Sounds like you have a lot going for yourself! But The Boss’s song catalogue is famously long! By the time you pick out the best Springsteen tunes to start a car repair business to the cocaine will have worn off and this will all seem stupid. That’s why we’ve got you covered! Wrap your legs ‘round these velvet rims and strap your hands ‘cross our engines because we’re counting down the top 10 Bruce Springsteen songs to open your own auto garage to!

Born To Run: Ever since the day you never left your hometown because you were too afraid, you knew you would one day open this auto shop. With your own business and some help from this song, you can fix cars for your customers to help them move on with their lives in a way you never did.

I’m on Fire: You’re super horny. But you’re also pretty horny for car repair too. That 98′ Ford Windstar van isn’t gonna repair itself. Bruce knew this too while filming the video for I’m on Fire which features The Boss showing off his oil changing skills which feels like a metaphor for something else.

Drive All Night: Rumor is that Bruce wrote this song after experiencing engine failure in the middle of the night. Much like a relationship, a car is only successful when a series of fuel and ignition system components work together. If only you knew that sooner. Maybe you couldn’t make your marriage work, but that’s all the more reason this garage can’t fail! It just can’t. You’ve put everything into this.

Atlantic City: You’ve borrowed money from some jersey loan shark to open your own shop. This song will remind you of the risks you’ve taken on to start a new business and what to do if you gotta split town quick.

Dancing in the Dark: Something about the line “This gun’s for hire” and like how you’re a hired gun now, but for cars? I don’t know, it doesn’t have to make sense, this is just a dope song.

Racing in the Streets: Listening to this song is the perfect inspiration you need in order to avoid any and all responsibilities in your life, so you can build speed demons with a 396 Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor.

I Can’t Drive 55: Fuck yeah, this Springsteen tune is bitchin! Johnny Law can’t hold you back with rules and regulations, you’re on the Highway to the Danger Zone baby! You got the need for speed! Seriously, you need speed, call your guy.

Wreck on the Highway: Some people look at the alarmingly high number of amphetamine fueled car wrecks in your town and all they see is tragedy. You see opportunity. Monopolizing the car repair industry where you live is the perfect direction for your skill-set.

My Hooptie: This classic Bruce song will always remind you how necessary it is to keep your loaner vehicles in good repair. You don’t want your customers driving around town too long with a broken tailpipe and AC while their Benz is in your shop.

Life is a Highway: Fans agree that this is probably the best Bruce song ever and they can also agree it’s the best song by The Boss to open up your own car repair shop.
