"The Times They Are A-Changin'," or at least John Mellencamp hopes. With the main theme of this upcoming election being "change," Mellencamp has recorded a cover version of Bob Dylan's famed "battle-cry for a generation." Mellencamp's version, recorded in stark black and white with Cougar performing solo on acoustic guitar, can be exclusively viewed now on his website. And as Mellencamp has made pretty clear in the past, he hopes the change comes from Obama and not McCain. Mellencamp has covered Dylan's songs many times in the past, from performances of "Farewell Angelina" to "All Along the Watchtower" to "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat," but none of the covers thus far carry the political weight and "relevant ideals of the past" of his rendition of "Times."
