There was one guest David Letterman couldn't get in 11 and a half years hosting "Late Night" -- The Boss.

But as Letterman says here, "better late than never." Springsteen joined Paul Shaffer and his band to play Dave off with "Glory Days," a pretty good call considering the nostalgia at the heart of that "Born in the USA" classic.

It's a pretty giddy six-minute clip below.
