John Mellencamp sends fans a somber summer reminder of the danger of living in America


Singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, known for the hits “Hurts So Good” and “Pink Houses,” expressed disgust at the frequency of mass shootings on Tuesday.

“Only in America,” he remarked.

“What kind of people are we who claim we care about pro-life,” he continued.

“Just so you know, anyone reading these politicians doesn’t care about you, they don’t care about me, and they don’t care about our kids.”

Mellencamp somberly warned fans to enjoy the summer now, “because it won’t be long before it happens again.”

Mellencamp was quick to express his political beliefs during his career. He was one of the first entertainment personalities to condemn the war in Iraq and his 2007 song “Rodeo Clown” is an apparent dig at former President George W. Bush.

“Now, every day, as the dust settles and the truth slowly resurfaces, more and more people come to the inevitable conclusion of the debacle of this entire war.”
