John Mellencamp

Pink Houses was one of the first singles recorded by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Mellencamp[/lastfm] under the name “John Cougar Mellencamp.” Before that, he had been recording as Johnny Cougar as a gimmick to gain notoriety, and it wasn’t until 1991 that he would finally drop the “Cougar” altogether and become “John Mellencamp.”

Pink Houses is the last in a series of six consecutive Mellencamp singles that were met with overwhelming popularity in the US. Of those six songs, five reached the Billboard top-20, four reached the top-10, and two made it all the way into the top-2!
