According to Springsteen, he came up with the title "Badlands" before he started writing the song. The song tells the story of a man down on his luck and angry at the world, who wants a better lot in life. On March 15, , in a keynote speech to an audience at the South by Southwest music festival, Springsteen discussed the Animals' influence on his music at length, praising their harsh, propulsive sound and lyrical content. This is how successful theft is accomplished! The classic E Street Band sound is immediately present on "Badlands," as a brief drum intro kicks in to a powerful piano -and- electric guitar riff. The song is taken fast, with Max Weinberg 's dynamic drumming; indeed it contains his most well-known beat, a one-two-three-four-five-six- double time one-two-three pattern underneath the verses.

The song was also the album's second single. Despite the marvelous reception received by both Born To Run and the tour which followed, the relationship between Bruce Springsteen and his now former manager and producer Mike Appel was deteriorating. In July the storm broke; Mike Appel wrote to Springsteen saying that he would not allow Jon Landau Springsteen's friend and co-producer of Born To Run to produce the next album, citing a particular paragraph from their original agreement. Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band were slated to enter the studio that year for the recording of a new album, except that on 15 Sep the judge in the lawsuits case ruled that Springsteen was enjoined from any further recording with Columbia Records until Appel's suit was resolved. This would drag for about a year. Meanwhile, Springsteen continued gigging, and in the process broke his self-imposed rule of not playing the larger arenas. This was basically because he was not able to put a record out, and it was the only way his fans would be able to hear him at all. Bruce Springsteen reached a final settlement in his yearlong litigation with Mike Appel on 28 May
