Bruce Springsteen sends off David Letterman: The raucous "Glory Days" which ended "Late Night"

Remembering the brilliant 1993 performance when The Boss nailed it, and ended "Late Night with David Letterman"

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.
