  • "American Skin (41 Shots)" is a song written by Bruce Springsteen, inspired by the police shooting death of Amadou Diallo. It premiered during the band's 1999–2000 reunion tour in concert in Atlanta on June 4, 2000, the final concert before the tour's final ten-show run at New York City's Madison Square Garden, where it was featured again. The performance led to some controversy in New York City, where the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association called for a boycott of Springsteen's shows. The song was first released as a live version on the Live in New York City album. The same version appeared a few years later on The Essential Bruce Springsteen. In April 2001, a studio version of the song was released as a very rare U.S.-only one-track radio promotional single on CD-R. A music video featuring the performance from the New York City show was released in 2001 and directed by Jonathan Demme. It was played at several concerts in April 2012 on the Wrecking Ball Tour in response to the shooting of Trayvon Martin. Springsteen performed the song on July 16, 2013, a few days following George Zimmerman's controversial not guilty verdict. It was again dedicated to Martin at the Limerick, Ireland, concert with Springsteen saying before the song "I want to send this one out as a letter back home. For justice for Trayvon Martin". Springsteen was recognized by the NAACP with the Humanitarian Award on December 3, 2000. Springsteen released a studio version of the song, recorded in 2013, on his 2014 album, High Hopes. Springsteen played "American Skin (41 Shots)" at selected shows during "The River Tour" in 2016, according to setlist.fm. In 2016, Jackson Browne performed a cover of "American Skin (41 Shots)" at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. In 2016 Mary J. Blige sang a portion of the song to Hillary Clinton in an interview on Apple Music. (en)
  • «American Skin (41 Shots)» es una canción compuesta por el músico estadounidense Bruce Springsteen. La canción, que denuncia la muerte de Amadou Diallo a manos de la policía de Nueva York, fue interpretada con frecuencia durante la gira de reunión con The E Street Band entre 1999 y 2000, y estrenada en el concierto de Atlanta (Georgia) el 4 de junio de 2000, el último antes de tocar durante diez días en el Madison Square Garden de Nueva York. Diallo, que en el momento de los hechos estaba desarmado, fue alcanzado por 19 de los 41 disparos que le realizaron los agentes cuando vieron que iba a coger su cartera, malinterpretando el gesto y pensando que iba a coger un arma. La interpretación de «American Skin (41 Shots)» provocó controversia en Nueva York, donde el sindicato Patrolmen's Benevolent Association llamó al boicot del concierto. Una versión en directo fue publicada en el álbum Live in New York City, y dos años después en el recopilatorio The Essential Bruce Springsteen. En abril de 2001, una versión de estudio fue publicada en un sencillo promocional de tirada limitada y en formato CD-R en los Estados Unidos. Un video musical con la actuación en directo del Madison Square Garden y dirigido por Jonathan Demme fue también estrenado en 2001. En abril de 2012, «American Skin (41 Shots)» fue interpretada con frecuencia en la gira Wrecking Ball Tour en respuesta al asesinato de Trayvon Martin. Springsteen volvió a tocar la canción el 16 de julio de 2013, pocos días después de que George Zimmerman, autor del asesinato de Martin, fuese declarado inocente. Tras su interpretación a lo largo de la gira, Springsteen regrabó la canción y publicó una nueva versión en el álbum High Hopes. (es)
  • American Skin (41 Shots) è una canzone di Bruce Springsteen, ispirata alla morte di Amadou Diallo, dovuta all'esplosione di 41 colpi di arma da fuoco, di cui 19 andati a segno, da parte della polizia di New York nel 1999. Springsteen la eseguì la prima volta in un concerto ad Atlanta, il 4 giugno 2000; era l'ultimo concerto prima del tour finale a New York, al Madison Square Garden. Il brano fu eseguito anche in quest'ultimo concerto e portò ad alcune controversie nella città, dove la Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, il sindacato degli ufficiali di polizia, ha cercato di boicottare il concerto di Springsteen. Il brano è stato pubblicato in una versione dal vivo in Live in New York City. Infine, una versione registrata in studio nel 2013 è stata inserita nell'album High Hopes. (it)
