"No Surrender" is a song from Bruce Springsteen's album Born in the U.S.A. A high-tempo rocker, it was only included on the album at the insistence of Steven Van Zandt, but has since become a concert staple for Springsteen, usually in a low-key, acoustic arrangement. It became prominent worldwide in 2004 when John Kerry, the Democratic candidate in that year's presidential election in the United States and a fan of Springsteen, used this theme song as the main theme song for his campaign. Though it was not one of the seven Top Ten hits of the album, "No Surrender" nevertheless charted on the Mainstream Rock Charts, peaking at # 40.

Live performances

During the Born in the U.S.A. Tour, "No Surrender" was rarely played, instead of having a full band version the song was a slow acoustic guitar and harmonica version.

The song was played occasionally in the Reunion Tour, The Rising Tour and later tours, including the Magic Tour. The song has been performed about 230 times through 2008.

Cover versions

In 2009, Jill Johnson recorded the song on the cover album Music Row II.
