2008 Hall of Fame Inductee: John Mellencamp
For years we were not sure what to call him - John Couger, John Couger Mellencamp, John Mellencamp. But that didn't overshadow the fact that he continued making fantastic pop/rock songs. Writing nearly all of his own songs, he continually reminded us of the struggles of the lower-middle working class. But he's ventured outside of that genre and performed duets with many celebrated artists such as India.Arie, Trisha Yearwood, and Lucinda Williams. Soon he will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and we hope you'll take part in our poll choosing the best John Mellencamp song.
