The Best That I Could Do 1978-1988 album at
John Mellencamp's, "Crumblin' Down"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
But I know I'm a real good dancer.
Why They're Inappropriate:
That's nice, John, but it isn't going to help you very much when the walls come crumblin' down.

John Mellencamp's, "Jack And Diane"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Suckin' on chili dogs, outside the Tasty Freeze
Why They're Inappropriate:
The "suckin' on chili dogs" part is bad enough, but to do so outside a "Tasty Freeze" is the inappropriate part. It just doesn't seem appropriate to be out there in order to "suck" on a chili dog.

John Mellencamp's, "Pink Houses"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And he looks at her and says,
'Hey, darling I can remember when you could stop a clock.'
Why They're Inappropriate:
It sounds like this is supposed to be a guy complimenting his wife, but I've only ever heard that line used as an insult (to imply that someone is incredibly ugly!).
