In other news, sons of a man who used Cougar as his stage name were given the stupid names of Hud and Speck.

Sounds like a wild night.

I thought it was John Cougar. Did he get married or something?

So much for being born and raised in a small town.

Can he use his first name as a defense for drinking in court?

Mellencamp, Indiana's not-so-coveted treasure.

He played at bluesfest last year and everyone said that for the 35 minutes he actually performed he shouldn't have bothered showing up. People would have been less disappointed.

funk_soul_bubby: Mellencamp, Indiana's not-so-coveted treasure.

/Most Hoosiers hate him


I'm from the same town as him and I got really tired having people ask about him while I was growing up.  He's got some talent, admittedly, but he's pretty douchy.  His ex-wife seemed ok, she did a lot of community projects around Bloomington.

Speck got his name because it was his grandfather's nickname.  And Hud...we'll that was Mellencamp's favorite movie.  He's lucky he didn't end up with the name "Deep Throat" or something.  I think both of them are still having legal issues for beating the crap out of someone.

Proper use of "sad" tag.  Whatever you think of his father or his name.

So Steve Kinser is still the most awesome person from Bloomington?

Mellencamp isn't from Bloomington.  In any case, I think that Hoagy Carmichel might be the winner in that category.

I should mention that I've got no real problems with Mellencamp or his music (I like much of it), but it got really old having to answer questions about him when I got to college -- it would have been much more interesting to discuss Seymour Recycling, one of the early superfund sites and a source of multiple evacuations for our family when I was a kid.

This was on the radio when I got pulled over - the officer thought it was hilarious. First and only speeding ticket. Eff you, Florida!

And some people probably wonder why they are maladjusted.

They beat up their father too. WTF?

Isn't Hud short for Hudson?

Two American kids growin' up in the heartland.


FTFA: Fud, his brother, Speck, and the son of Indiana University baseball coach Tracy Smith, Ty, were arrested last year on battery charges. The three are accused of beating up victim Alex Bucy and leaving him with severe injuries. They return to court Thursday in connection with the battery case.

Two American kids doin' the best they can.
