The Indiana-born singer/songwriter and Heartland rocker was an unlikely candidate to become an 1980s icon; a simple Midwestern guy in the otherwise flashy MTV era. Nonetheless, he had his first hit studio album with American Fool (1982), released as John Cougar, followed by Uh-Huh (1983), under the moniker John Cougar Mellencamp. After those two projects, his career took off, ultimately becoming the trailblazing rock singer-songwriter that he is today.
