We believe the following info is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.

The original title of the script was "Born in the USA." Paul Schrader asked Bruce Springsteen to write a title song for the movie. After Springsteen wrote it, he liked the song so much, he used it for his multi-platinum album of the same name. As a replacement, Springsteen later wrote the song "Light of Day". That is why Springsteen thanks Schrader in the liner notes of the album.
Thanks to Jon Roman
80's rocker Fiona (Flanagan) was offered Joan Jett's role, but couldn't do it because she was starring in another movie with Bob Dylan called "Hearts of Fire".
Thanks to Jessie
Michael J. Fox wrote and performed the song "Got No Place To Go" in the movie, The full length version appears on the soundtrack.
Thanks to Mikey Nichols
This film was actually offered to Bruce Springsteen as a acting project (for what became the Joan Jett role) when he was thinking about going into film acting. He ultimately passed on this project (and dismissed the idea of going into films altogether).
