John Mellencamp: Home

John Mellencamp was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.

John Mellencamp

John Mellencamp, in black and white against a black background, presumably in live performance. He holds both arms in the air, pointing with his left and holding a microphone with his right. He wears a dark embellished jacket. His mouth is slightly open and he is looking up, presumably into the crowd.No artifice, no affectation.

John Mellencamp gives it to you straight. He muscled his way up from humble roots, giving a voice to the everyman with his blend of garage- and folk-rock. More on rockhall.com...
