Short intro

Uh-Huh is a 1983 album by John Cougar Mellencamp, a stage name for John Mellencamp. It was Mellencamp's seventh studio album and the first in which he used his real last name. It charted at 9 on the Billboard 200. Uh-Huh contained three Top 20 Billboard Hot 100 hits: Crumblin' Down 9, Pink Houses 8, and Authority Song 15. In 1989, it was ranked No. 32 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Albums of the 80's. Uh-Huh runs out of steam toward the end, but the first half - with the dynamic rocker Crumblin' Down, his best protest song, Pink Houses, the punky Authority Song, the melancholy Warmer Place to Sleep, and the garage rocker Play Guitar - makes the record his first terrific album.

Although American Fool was certainly a hit in its own right, it was with Uh-Huh that Mellencamp really started asserting his grip on the musical zeitgeist. He may never have been the biggest-selling or best-reviewed artist, but he boasted a strong core audience whose reliable passion helped keep him near the upper reaches of the charts throughout the decade something Wanchic attributes to Mellencamp's steadfast unwillingness to settle.
