Some bands don't wait around for Weird Al to parody one of their songs, and take a pre-emptive strike and write a silly song of their own.

Look at his discography. He's changed his stage so many times! His first few albums (from 1976 -1979) were released under the moniker "Johnny Cougar". His 1979 album was titled "John Cougar" and that's the name he used on his 1980 and 1982 albums. In early 1983 I read in a newspaper that he was up for Grammy awards and he was listed as "John Mellencamp Cougar" after he said he wanted his next album released under his real name. That happened later that year when the "Uh-Huh" album came out under the name "john Cougar Mellencamp". For the rest of the 80s his albums were under that name despite rumors that he'd dropped the "Cougar" altogether. That didn't occur until he put out a new release in late 1991. At the same time he has occasionally used the name "Lil Bastard" to denote himself in production credits. That name was used by another famous Hoosier (James Dean) for his car. Also, here in the Buckeye State the DJs of Q-FM-96 FM often refer to John with the affectionate nicknames "John Hoosier Mellencamp" and "John Hoosier Melon Head". He's got a huge fan base in the MidWest.
Bertie Higgins claims that his 1982 Top 10 Jimmy Buffet-ish hit "Key Largo" reached as high as it did because he willed it to do so by means of alpha wave meditative thinking. He would score more hits and write some more for other artists but none of them hit as big for him as this one.
On the #2 hit "New Sensation", which is the second track on the megaplatinum hit album "Kick" Hutch Man shouts "Trumpet!" but the horn solo is done on a saxophone instead. However, on the album's title track a trumpet appears.
