09/21/2015 - Number One: Best Blue Collar Spirit: John Mellencamp: John Mellencamp has always seemed to relate to the average Joe American. Maybe it's his small-town roots or down-home upbringing, but the Indiana rocker is a blue-collar worker at heart. To that end, he has and continues to perfectly embody the Farm Aid spirit. "Can't trust the police/With their guns or their nights/My, my these are lawless times," he intoned with a cigarette-stained growl on his set-opening "Lawless Times." Hits like "Small Town" and "Pink Houses," both unleashed at Farm Aid, may have a more upbeat sentiment, but Mellencamp is no naďve fool. As the man dressed in black professed on the Farm Aid-appropriate "Rain on the Scarecrow:" "This land fed a nation this land made me proud/And son I'm just sorry there's no legacy for you now." Read the complete "15 Best Things We Saw At Farm Aid 2015" after the jump. Read More
