John Mellencamp Takes a Knee During Performance of Politically Charged 'Easy Target'

John Mellencamp paid a visit to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday night to perform a slowed-down rendition of his fiery, politically charged record "Easy Target." The record came from Mellencamp's spring 2017 effort Sad Clowns & Hillbillies.

With the stage lights dimmed and a faint American flag appearing behind the band, the song opened up with an incredibly somber piano melody backed by deep bass chords. An equally solemn violin blended with the keys as Mellencamp's rugged voice breathed life into the record. "Behind the bars, they keep us apart/ Easy targets, this countries' broken heart," he sang.

Matching the mood of the record, the crowning moment of the performance came when Mellencamp made a powerful statement and took a knee as he sang his last words.
