No Surrender

NO SURRENDER - V2 uncirculating

Note: Near the end of the Born In the U.S.A. sessions, Bruce brings in a new composition, "No Surrender", and the band goes to work on it for three days, October 25–27, 1983, with the album arrangement (V1) recorded October 27 at The Hit Factory. Richie "La Bamba" Rosenberg contributes background vocals. Springsteen would return on November 29, 1983 to cut an acoustic version (V2). The song almost didn't make the album, and was only added after Steve Van Zandt convinced Springsteen that it should be included. At the time CBS had an eleven-song album without "No Surrender" ready to go. Van Zandt argued that "Dancing In The Dark" should be cut in favor of "No Surrender", but in the end there was space on the album for both.
