    Does this song kick ass or what?
    The song is about 20 years old, but I still to this day think... This have to be the beast freakin' best song Van Halen has ever made in their life.
    I don't know about what you people think... this is just my opinion.
    If you have another then let's go a post.
    I'm ready for a debate.

    One of the best songs from the DLR era. That would be cool to hear them play it live during a 2001 tour!

    This would definitely be one of, if not my favorite VH tune. The live version they played in 1998 that finished with the ending of Hot For Teacher really kicked ass.

    I gotta say that it's usually a two horse race between Mean Street and Unchained as my fave VH tune! I'll just take 'em both and hope to hear them live SOON!

    Should get this bad boy thread on the 3.16 train to the Songs/Albums/Vid's Forum, since it's VH related.

    Awesome song, I even love the original version called Voodoo Queen. "I see a skull in a top hat". A little Slash foreshadowing by DLR???

    Blue Eyed Murder....The song's title IS "Mean Streets" NOT "Mean Street"


    Look at the back of the record...


    I hate when people refer to it as "Mean Street" when it is in fact "Mean Streets".....Whew--I'm dizzy now!

    Okay, I just checked the official site and it DOES list the song as Mean Street without the "s"


    I don't have Fair Warning with me here at work, but I would SWEAR that as long as I have loved the album (many many years) the song title was: "Mean Streets" WITH an "s"


    am I going insane here? I gotta go check my copies of Fair Warning when I get home.
