John Mellencamp --- What do ya think of his music?

Personally if there were no such thing as U2 (*gasp* perish the thought!!) I think that he'd be my #1 artist/band. What do you think of his music?

------------------
"It's all about drums."

"What's with all the glitter? I thought you didn't like our mirrorball lemon and shit. Well it's too late to change your mind now." -- Bono, Indianapolis, May 10, 2001

"Tonight with us, we have people who turned celebrity on its head. Celebrities are supposed to be somebody special, film stars, rock stars, we're celebrities. Supposed to be heroes, but we're not heroes. We're very selfish people who enjoy what they do, thank you very much. But here tonight we have from the fire department of New York City, from the police department of New York City, men and women that came down to catch the U2 show tonight. Theirs is the kind of bravery that can truly change the world." --Bono, Notre Dame, October 10, 2001

I like his older stuff - Pink Houses, Cherry Bomb, and Jack&Diane - his newer stuff isn't as interesting to me.

No alarms and no surprises, please.

I also enjoy his music very much. He writes good, meaningful songs and puts on a pretty good show.

He was on Stern recently and was very good.

I like his older stuff, but I heard a new song of his on the radio, and I thought it was Hanson.
Other than that, he's classic, and I really like him.
Hopefully he won't have any more heart attacks.
We need him to be around for a long time.

Totally agree HelloAngel. JM's older stuff totally rocks, but the new stuff ....... snoozers. I saw him live back around the Whenever We Wanted tour and he put on a great show.

I'm a huge Mellencamp fan, I grew up with his music as I've done with U2 (I'm 21). I've seen him twice and he puts on a great show. I haven't been into his past 2 albums though...but I still love him.

I like his music very much. His older music especially Little Pink Houses makes you feel proud to be born in the USA.

I love "Peaceful World"

The video and song are both awesome. I liked it even before they played it every day since 9/11, and it means so much more now! Kind of like U2's "Peace on Earth"..

I agree. I like Peaceful World as well as his older stuff. Though maybe not the greatest artist after U2, but up there.

I love the song "What if I Came Knockin'?"...just kicks ass.
Saw him on 9-13, it was a welcome release 2 after 2 days mesmerized by the news.


Q: Where do you send little cantaloupes for summer vacation?
A: John Cougar Mellencamp
