The five-and-a-half minute video opens with Springsteen's harmonica intro from the Hammersmith Odeon in London and includes clips from performances from all across the world -- from New York to Milan to Stockholm and more -- mostly playing with the E Street Band but sometimes playing solo with guitar and even piano.

"In this video, I wanted to explore how a song like Thunder Road has changed, not only in the way Springsteen performs it, but also how its meaning evolves with an older person singing," wrote the video's creator Phil Whitehead with his post. "I also wanted to look the evolution of live recordings, both professional and homemade."
