John ‘Cougar’ Mellencamp – Scarecrow
John Mellencamp – “formerly John Cougar Mellencamp, formerly-formerly John Cougar — is an American original. His emotionally authentic, straightforward rock n’ roll reflects his upbringing in the Heartland, combining pop, country, and folk to create poetic grooves that you can also jam out to on a bar’s jukebox. Remarkably successful, Mellencamp has sold more than 27 million albums, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s many hits — like “Jack and Diane,” “Hurts So Good,” “Cherry Bomb,” “Small Town,” “Pink Houses,” and “Authority Song” — are perpetually-played staples of classic rock radio.
Similar to the way that anyone can connect to Bruce Springsteen or Bob Dylan, seemingly everybody can enjoy or even relate to the people and themes in Mellencamp’s music. That’s because Mellencamp is a real guy who’s lived a few lifetimes’ worth of drama and struggle. ” Brian Boone – Grunge.com
