‘Don’t let this club membership change you, John’, says Joel [3:35] at Mellencamp's 2008 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. ‘We need you to be pissed off and restless... People are scared and angry... They need a voice like yours to echo the discontent out there in the heartland... Someone’s got to tell them “don’t take any shit” and, John, you do that very well.’ John says ‘The sword is a mighty weapon but it ain’t nothing compared to the songs and the words in the songs we sing.’ Then [6:40] he and the band perform "Pink Houses" live (originally on LP "Uh-Uh" from 1983). This video features English subtitles, song lyrics, chords, a little bit of notation and a few extra images. It has been edited down to 12 minutes and the audio track improved from the original ceremony [28:49] available on YouTube.
