Dance Naked is the thirteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter John Mellencamp released on June 21, The album was released in response to the record company's accusations that Mellencamp's previous album, Human Wheels , didn't "fit the format. As a result, he wrote several purposely radio-friendly songs and recorded them within the span of 14 days at his Belmont Mall recording studio in Belmont, Indiana, intending to show the lack of effort required to produce the type of album they were asking for. Although Mellencamp claims that Dance Naked was merely an easy output to give the company what it wanted, the album was still well received.
