    I've said this many times before, it's got to be Unchained.

    The best with Sammy? Maybe Aftershock, Judgement Day, Humans Being, or "5150."

    I think it would be Unchained. Song rocks. Has Ed's great playing, Dave's great lyrics and schtick, the thumping bass, and the great drum sound to it. I think the live video best epitomizes VH's sound though.

    It's a toss up for me between Mean Street and Unchained...

    Mean Street intro shows off Eddie's creativity, whereas Unchained shows off Mike's backing vocals...

    Maybe it's Dance The Night Away because it demonstrates how accessible to a pop audience VH always was...

    I feel their "sound" slightly evolved with each new album. The unfortunate thing is that for the "casual fan" when you ask them to describe the "consumate VH sound", you'd most likely get a "Jump" or "Dreams" reply.

    However, if I had to pick one song from each era, it'd be...

    "Unchained" (DLR)
    "Top Of The World" (SH)

    If I had to play one song for someone to introduce them to VH, it would have to be "Hot For Teacher". It has everything.

    Nowdays it should be Somebody Get Me a Doctor (my personal fav.) But overall
    it IS Unchained.
    Just go for it!
