The shot created controversy: was Springsteen facing the flag in admiration, or was it a rebellious gesture? Some even suggested he was urinating on the flag. He denied it: “That was unintentional. We took a lot of different types of pictures, and in the end, the picture of my ass looked better than the picture of my face, that’s what went on the cover. I didn’t have any secret message. I don’t do that very much.”
