This.

I own a few Mellencamp albums, and VP has a good point in that he's basically on the level of Tom Petty, who has no more right to be in the hall of fame. But he's not as awful as that commercial would suggest.

Petty >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mellencamp

In my opinion.

(Those greater than signs are kind of obnoxious, i know, but it's what the kids are doing these days I think)

His best days were behind him long before that commercial aired. I have American Fool and Uh-Huh, and then sort of lost interest after that. I'm kind of surprised I never picked up Scarecrow though, that seems to be a solid album.

I actually agree with you there, if you are indeed saying that Chicago should be in. I love Chicago. LOVE. Not the shitty, late era Peter Cetera-style ballads, but their rocking, jazz-fusion numbers, and their earlier pop-rock/ballads. Awesome band.

Boom. Can't argue with that. I guess I'm not supposed to have an opinion on anyone who came before my time?

I mean, supporting The Beatles? I wasn't even there!

Hall & Oates aren't in? That's kind of fucked up. They're the biggest selling duo of all time in the U.S., if I'm not mistaken, and their white boy soul was pretty distinct from every one of their contemporaries. The guys were great songwriters as well.

Scarecrow is a great album, and many Mellencamp fans feel The Lonesome Jubilee is his best. I personally prefer 1991's harder-rocking Whenever We Wanted, which is extremely underrated, and the first album after he dropped the "Cougar". It did very well with the critics at the time, if I remember correctly.

It should also be mentioned that Kenny Aronoff, Mellencamp's longtime drummer, is one of the best in the business.

We can't officially root for any artist until when? 2016?

Mark your calendar, Pfan.

Also, I think that King Crimson, Yes, Cat Stevens, ELO, Brian Eno, Quincy Jones, Journey, and Sonic Youth should get in at some point, in addition to Hall & Oates. Private eyes *clap clap* are watching you!

You should. That period of his from American Fool to The Lonesome Jubilee was pretty good.

Again, agreed. Whenever We Wanted was the last Mellencamp album that I cared for, although Human Wheels had its moments.

The only album of his that I've heard in full is Scarecrow, and it's pretty damn fine for what it is. No idea why he chose to become Toby Keith, but his lyrics weren't always such crap.

Re: Petty, I don't think he was far more significant than Mellencamp, but I think it's fair to say that Petty at least showed more versatility throughout his career than the other. Of course, I will admit to my biases: I am a huge fan. Up to and including Hard Promises, I think the Heartbreakers were pretty much unstoppable. And, as a solo act, Full Moon Fever has those singles, and Wildflowers is pretty excellent as a whole.
