An online museum of Bruce Springsteen memorabilia is set to launch in June to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the singer's record "Born in the USA," NME reports will feature over 300 objects ranging from concert posters to handwritten lyrics – with more items to be added in the future. The online museum will offer contest prizes every six months, with website creator Michael Crane offering signed album artwork as the prize for the first contest, reports Rolling Stone.

Springsteen has recently been making headlines by playing a number of unexpected cover versions during his live shows, most recently playing Van Halen's "Jump" at the March Madness Music Festival in Dallas in April.

While touring Australia and New Zealand earlier this year, the singer covered songs such as AC/DC's "Highway to Hell," for which he brought on stage Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees, "Friday on My Mind" by the Easybeats and INXS' "Don't Change."

A show in Auckland, New Zealand also saw Springsteen cover Lorde's "Royals," a cover which she subsequently said made her "teary."

    Blinded by the light is a strange song to go with for the site name. I'm not complaining though, 70s Springsteen is my favourite. I always got the vibe that he was just this half genius, half insane young man trying to tame the E Street band back on the first two albums. Horns and solos every where.
    ''Online Museum'' back in my days, we called it a f*cking homepage. But cool word though ,, hey, have you checked out my online museum?''
