Guess we know why he is called the Boss!

Legendary American rocker Bruce Springsteen has contributed a song to a CD compilation by the Odd Squad, a documentary production team made up of Vancouver police officers.

Springsteen’s song “Point Blank,” originally released in the 1980 album The River, fronts the non-profit group’s second CD release titled On the Beat Volume II, thanks to Chris Graham, the team’s “music guy” and long-time fan of the Boss.

“He has a big social conscience,” said Graham of their decision to appeal to Springsteen. “So when I wrote to him initially I said his endorsement would allow us to get other people involved, which is exactly what happened.”
