    Yes at DarkHorizons.com they have stated that VH is working in the studio with DLR and the first single on their fall release album will be called "Magic Carpet Ride" and it is set to be the main track in a fall release movie but the question is which one? Check it all out at http://www.geocities.com/raven0012/79th_Sunset_.html

    So would it be a cover of Steppenwolf's song?

    It'd be dumb to write an original song with the same name as another very well-known song. Think of the criticism they'd get from everyone.

    Doesn't sound right to me. Eddie has always maintained that he hated doing cover tunes and I highly doubt that he would release the first single of the most anticipated album in years as a cover. Doesn't add up. I agree that it could only be a cover with that name but I think the whole article is not correct. We'll see in due time though I guess

    Being a member of Lambda Chi Alpha and a Van Halen fan I would love to see them do that cover. If any of you are brothers then I am sure you agree.

    I truly hope this is NOT true. Bad idea coming back from a LONG AWAITED silence with a COVER song of an old Steppenwolf song....

    Besides, I thought Edward really despised doing covers....

    I seriously doubt the validity of this news.

    The ASCAP website does indeed have Van HALEN listed with the title "Magic Carpet Ride", but does not actually specify that it is the Steppenwolf song.

    Even more interesting as that Van Halen is also listed as performers on the Yes song "I've Seen All Good People". I don't see them covering that song either.

    Neither is proof of a recording however. The site also lists Van Hagar's rendition of Zeppelin's "Rock n Roll", which was performed by the band on the 5150 tour, but never recorded.

    This definitely does reek of recycling bits of speculation in new ways.
