John Cougar ‎– American Fool VG+/VG+

$15.00 Inc. GST

Released in 1982, John Cougar’s “American Fool” marked a turning point in his career. It was his fifth studio album, but the first to achieve mainstream success, topping the Billboard charts for an impressive nine weeks. This rock and roll record, with strong pop sensibilities, moved away from the sound of his earlier work. “American Fool” captured the essence of small-town America, painting a vivid picture of working-class life, frustrations, and dreams. The album launched two of Mellencamp’s biggest hits: the irresistible, Stones-inspired rocker “Hurts So Good,” and the poignant ballad “Jack & Diane,” a tale of young love and chasing aspirations. “American Fool” wasn’t just catchy tunes though, it offered a relatable and sometimes critical look at small-town life, resonating with a wide audience and solidifying John Cougar Mellencamp as a major American voice.
