It is a great honor and thrill for me to introduce the South By South-West 2012 Keynote speaker, the boss of rock n’ roll: Mr. Bruce Springsteen.

Good morning ya, Good morning, good morning, good morning, why are we up so fucking early. How important can this speech be if we’re giving it at noon? Can’t be that important – Every decent musician in town is asleep, or they will be by the time I’m done with this thing, I guarantee you. I was a little hesitant. The word ‘keynote’ made me uncomfortable. It seemed to suggest that there was a key note to be struck that sums up whatever is going on out there in the streets: five days of bands, hundreds of venues, morning to night. And no one hardly agrees on anything in pop anymore. There is no key note. I don’t think. There’s no unified theory of everything. You can ask Einstein.
You can pick any band say, Kiss. You can go, “Early theater rock proponents expressing the true raging hormones of youth,” or, “They suck!”
You can go, “Phish, inheritors of the Grateful Dead’s mantle, brilliant center of the true alternative community,” or, “They suck!”
You go, “Bruce Springsteen, natural-born poetic genius off the streets of Monmouth County, (wait) hardest-working New Jerseyan in show business, voice of the common man, future of rock ‘n’ roll,” or… “He sucks! Get the fuck outta here!
You can pick you own band and create your own equation. It’s fun.
There was a recent book the focused on the Beatles and decided: You got it! “They suck!”
So really instead of a keynote speech perhaps there should be a key note speech or perhaps many key note speakers. I exaggerate of a fact but only a little bit so ah with that as my disclaimer – I move cautiously on. (more coming soon 3:16)
[Bruce Springsteen – This Land Is Your Land]
As I went walking
I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said “No Trespassing.”
But on the other side it didn’t say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.
This land is your land
This land is my land
This song is meant to be sung by everybody.
To the New York island
From the Redwood Forest
To the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and me
So on that day…

So rumble, young musicians, rumble. Open your ears and open your hearts. Don’t take yourself too seriously, and take yourself as seriously as death itself. Don’t worry. Worry your ass off. Have ironclad confidence, but doubt. It keeps you awake and alert. Believe you are the baddest ass in town — and you suck!
It keeps you honest. It keeps you honest. To be able to keep two completely contradictory ideas alive and well inside of your heart and head at all times. If it doesn’t drive you crazy, it will make you strong. And stay hard, stay hungry and stay alive. And when you walk on stage tonight to bring the noise, treat it like it’s all we have — and then remember it’s only rock ‘n’ roll. I think I may go out and catch a little black death metal, thank you.
