Could be one of six songs:

In this context it's likely to be the Johnny Cash one, which is a version of a traditional country song. The Ray Charles version is the same traditional song. The Johnny Thunders song is also a possibility because The Hold Steady's sound could easily appeal to both fans of Bruce Springsteen and fans of Johnny Thunders.

Also could be a reference to the song by the SoCal hardcore punk band Social Distortion.

It is a reference to the Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers song, confirmed by Craig after a show.
