With an attitude that is unmatched by most rock and roll artists of his time, John Mellencamp has had an incredible career. Whether going by the names John Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp, or just simply "The Coug," Mellencamp has reached fans around the globe. Now with over 30 years of rock and roll experience, he continues to tour singing his classics.

John Mellencamp was born October 7, 1951, in the heartland of America in Seymour, Indiana. After working at a phone company in his hometown, Mellencamp moved to New York seeking a path into music. He attached himself to manager Tony DeFries and while under his guidance recorded the albums Chestnut Street Incident and The Kid Inside using the stage name Johnny Cougar. Neither was at all successful, and Mellencamp was dropped from his label. He continued to record after being signed by Riva Records, but it wasn't until he released American Fool (1982) that he found success. The album reached #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and contained the single "Jack and Diane," which stayed in the top spot for four weeks.

Over his career he has gone through name changes from John Cougar, which was used against his will, all the way to John Mellencamp. What has stayed the same is his attitude and drive to be among the best at what he does. He has had a top ten album in the 1980's, in the 1990's and in the new millennium. His single "Hurts So Good" off of American Fool won Mellencamp the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance at the 25th annual Grammys. He went on to be nominated for another Grammy at the 50th annual award ceremony for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance. Some notable albums for John Mellencamp include Scarecrow (1985), Human Wheels (1993) and Freedom's Road (2007).
