If They keep enforcing this it will only be a matter of time before every club does away with live bands and you have DJ'd everywhere..

I know it's just not Springsteen but how much friggin money do you need man? How much is enough? I am sure Bruce never covered others material when he was starting out right? Why you would let this ascap use your name for this greed is beyond me and I will never understand it.
This rule has been being enforced since the 1920's.

Really, this is nothing new.

Try researching publishing royalties and the rules about such before jumping to conclusions about greed.
