    Saw him as John Cougar Mellencamp 1983ish Dothan, Alabama. Good show, expected torn bluejeans and penny loafers. He and his whole band were in tux and tails. Lol

    A guy I used to work with said he had "Diane" from Jack and Diane for a HS teacher in Scottsburg Indiana. They used to sing this song and she would lose her damn mind. "sucking on chili dog outside the tasty freeze."

    Big fan here! I've seen him 3 times: 1981 in Orlando, early 1990s @ Farm Aid in Ames and 2015 in Cincinnati.

    I remember him as Johnny Cougar from the 1970's. Of course that was when he was doing clubs and hadn't hit the big time yet.

    Probably my favorite rendition of Hey Porter. The link should start at 15:43

    Well I came to post Rain on the Scarecrow because its a filthy jam but OP already lead us off strong.

    Ill toss this in there since I remember it as a kid and loved it long before I even knew who Van Morrison was.

    Remember when MTV held a contest and the prize was a house in Indiana that you and your friends have to paint pink?
