Atlantic City

In March, 1981 a mob boss by the name of Philip "The Chicken Man" Testa was killed when a nail bomb exploded under his front porch. He lived about an hour away from Atlantic City, and owned a bar on the boardwalk where Donald Trump later built a massive casino. The incident has been known to kick off an incredibly bloody mob war, and inspired Bruce to write a great tune about what was happening in his own state. The result is a great song called "Atlantic City". 

"Everything dies baby, that's a fact, but maybe everything that dies someday comes back."
