    Everyone knows great ones by Van Halen like "Jump" and "You Really Got Me", and other greats were recognized by the BOV1, like "Unchained", "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" and so on--but there are some which not many know(exceptions being Mean Streets and Top of the World, as they are well known--but not nearly respected enough). So here's the question--what is your absolute favorite Van Halen song that was tremendously underrated, that never really got viewed by the public? Mine's a toss up between Drop Dead Legs, So this is Love? and 5150.

    Answer away!

    Everybody Wants Some!!!

    Killer song, just absolutely killer, but the public wouldn't recognize it.

    Aftershock. It's probably one of the most unknown VH songs, and it's my favorite.

    Judgement Day, Dirty Water Dog, Take Your Whiskey Home and The Seventh Seal. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] I have never heard any of those songs on the radio.

    Little Guitars. Light Up the Sky seems like a good candidate too.

    I'd probably have to say LIGHT UP THE SKY and DROP DEAD LEGS. LITTLE GUITARS is also amazing.

    House Of Pain
    Little Guitars
    Light Up The Sky
    Drop Dead Legs
    The Full Bug.
    More..... They play a lot of Van Halen of our radios. Last night I whispered Van Halen to myself, turned on the radio and it was the middle of Unchained!! Weird but cool.

    the entire fair warning is underrated.
    i think i'll wait gets a bad rap, i love that tune. beautiful girls deserves more recognition, and i think feel your love tonight and little guitars could have made it far if they got more radio play.
    for hagar, i think 5150, and mine all mine deserved more, same with the seventh seal. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...
