About this song (History Books)

The song “History Books” is the second track on the album History Books by the American rock band The Gaslight Anthem. The album was released on October 27, 2023 and was produced by Peter Katis. The song features a guest appearance by Bruce Springsteen, who co-wrote the lyrics with the band’s lead singer Brian Fallon.

The song is about looking back at the past with regret and nostalgia, and wanting to escape from the memories that haunt the present. He compares their past to “history books filled up with crooks”, implying that they were involved in some shady or illegal activities, or that their stories have been distorted or forgotten.
