John Mellencamp is the 15th album by American singer-songwriter and musician John Mellencamp, released on October 6, 1998. It was the first of three albums Mellencamp would record for Columbia Records. On this record, we ended up quite a bit away from where we started," Mellencamp told Guitar World Acoustic in 1998.

That album was a complete flop partly due to the fact that the record label wanted to mold John into something he was not (a pretty boy ala James Dean) and the fact that the album mostly consisted of cover songs. It was also the label's idea to release the album under the name Johnny Cougar which Mellencamp did not approve of. It wasn't until the release of American Fool, released this time under the moniker John Cougar, which featured his most well-known hit to date, "Jack & Diane" that he really made it big; the album stayed at on the charts for nine weeks.

Once "I Need a Lover" became an Australian hit, Riva in America decided to release John Cougar's eponymous fourth album, adding the song to the record as well. Essentially, John Cougar is sonically similar to A Biography, but apart from the tacked-on "I Need a Lover," none of the songs hit the mark.

The record wasn't released in the United States, but it yielded a No. 1 hit in Australia with "I Need a Lover. Riva Records added "I Need a Lover" to Mellencamp's next album released in the United States, 1979's John Cougar, where the song became a No. 28 single in late 1979. Pat Benatar recorded "I Need a Lover" on her debut album In the Heat of the Night. The first album recorded under his new name John Cougar Mellencamp was 1983's Uh-Huh, a Top-10 album that spawned the Top 10 singles "Pink Houses" and "Crumblin' Down" as well as the No. 14 hit "Authority Song," which he said is "our version of "I Fought the Law'.

So Scarecrow is the John Cougar Mellencamp who became truly successful: n. in US album charts with at least 5 singles released from it, 3 reaching the top 10. If you are interested in his career, this album is a Must. This is a guitar and drums album. Here, John Mellencamp doesn't come up with anything that hasn't been heard elsewhere, but it works so well, and because it has that direct, classic rock production, it hasn't aged as much as some other eighties productions that tried to be trendy at the time. For the record, I own all JM's albums. I give max. to tracks I love, to songs I feel are still worth listening to.

Johnny Cougar has a long history of music that defined a generation of Americana. Songs like "Hurts So Good" and "Jack and Diane" instantly bring to mind a vision of the cool every guy that is John Mellencamp.
