Chestnut Street Incident is the debut studio album by John Mellencamp, then known as "Johnny Cougar," released in 1976. Signing on with David Bowie's manager, Tony DeFries, Mellencamp travelled to New York City to cut this first album. DeFries would also go on to produce the album as well. With the thinking that a name like "Mellencamp" wouldn't generate a lot of interest DeFries changed Mellencamp's name to "Johnny Cougar.
Cougar's debut, Chestnut Street Incident, was released in 1976 in a whirlwind of hype. A competent collection of Stonesy rockers, infused with a blue-collar Bruce Springsteen/Bob Seger attitude, the album received a critical backlash because of all the hype, but it's possible to hear the roots of Cougar's heartland music within the record, if you listen closely.
Many presumed it was his first album, but the previous summer he had released Empty Sky in England. The eight-minute title track is a strong rocker and the beautiful ballad "Skyline Pigeon" remained a part of John's live repertoire for decades, but the majority of the album is simply too twee and slight. The production is thin and simply can't compare to the work that John crafted in the 1970s with the brilliant Gus Dudgeon. On his debut LP, John Mellencamp – make that Johnny Cougar – was shooting for Springsteen-style populism. But saddled with defanged teen-idol reworkings of "Oh, Pretty Woman," "Jailhouse Rock" and the Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe in Magic?" he came off as little more than the pillow-lipped, popped-collar pinup he was portrayed as on the album's cover. All tracks composed by Johnny Cougar (. John Mellencamp); except where indicated.

But you must believe that when I walk down the tracks All those young girls fall back and say There goes that sleek young silhouette He don't drive no Corvette But he stings just like a Sting Ray And that's my only redemption in this house of detention That keeps me from simply blowin' it all away 'Cause when I walk. down the street in the hot summer heat I say, God don't take this away.
