    Press release, July 29, 2002, Los Angeles

    Legendary rockers, Van Halen, announced today the hiring of a new lead singer. The four year vacancy, last occupied by ex-Extreme vocalist, Gary Cherone, and also held by legendary vocalists David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar, has been filled by (enter your name here). Roth, commenting from his hotel room, while on a co-headlining tour with Hagar, said...well, we don't know what he said because it was in jive, and didn't make any sense at all. Hagar, also from a hotel room on tour offered to buy (your name) a case of Cabo Wabo Tequila. Gary Cherone, now of Tribe of Judah, offered his condolences to (your name). When asked by a reporter at the press conference, what fans could expect from the live show, (your name) replied by naming off the set list for the tour. "Yeah," said (your name) "we're going to play..."

    In other words, what would your set list be, if you were the new singer of Van Halen (do anywhere from 20-25 songs, and indicate encoures).

    PS, if this has been done to death SORRY damnit! I'm new at this, so give me a break.

    If I were the new lead singer for Van Halen I'd risk a charge of forceable confinement, and hold them all at gunpoint at 5150 until they agree to get Dave back in the band [img]graemlins/yell.gif[/img]

    Well, before I divulge the setlist, I'd like to let everybody know that we will re-release 1984 without Hot For Teacher, the dumbest rock song ever. In fact, we are going to re-release all our albums with me on vocals, so that Dave, Sammy and Gary won't get any more royalties. Take that! Thanks Sharon Osbourne!

    Now that I got that out, here's the setlist. It's gonna contain 50%Roth and 50%Hagar and those Dave cocksuckers who want all Dave and Sammy ass kissers who want all Sammy can go blow Gary Cherone. YEAH! We're gonna take with us some artists to add extra phlava to our songs. If you don't like it, tough beyooootchhhh!

    1 Jump (with N'sync and Backstreet Boys)
    2 Poundcake (with BB King)
    3 Dance The Night Away (with Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne)
    4 Why Can't This Be Love (with Kid Rock and Snoop Dawg)
    5 Unchained (with Britney Spears)
    6 Humans Being (with Christina Aguilera)
    7 Panama (with Enrique Iglesias and Pat Boone)
    8 Runaround (with India Arie)
    9 Little Guitars (with Jay Z and Coco Lee)
    10 When It's Love (with Diana Ross and Ricky Martin)
    11 Ain't Talkin Bout Love (with Ravi Shankar and Paul Mc Cartney)
    12 Dreams (with Iron Maiden)
    13 Everybody Want Some (with Jon Bon Jovi and Joe Elliott)
    14 Top Of The World (with Elton John, Billy Joel and Metallica)
    15 Somebody Get Me A Doctor (with Charlotte Church and Willie Nelson)
    16 5150 (with Papa Roach and Linkin Park)
    17 I'm The One (with Nelly and Luciano Pavarotti)
    18 Can't Stop Loving You (with Nile)
    19 Mean Street (with the Vienna Boys Choir and Tommy Lee)
    20 Right Now (with Janet Jackson and Michael Jackson)

    Encore

    21 Without You (Eddie and Alex on vocals featuring Fred Durst)
    22 How Many Say I (with Sammy Hagar and David Lee Roth)

    This is gonna be da bomb yo!

    I leave the band, then take them to court over royalties and then get back to them to talk about a possible reunion.

    I think you're 3 years too late. Thanks for the blast from the past though...I now have Shakira's swinging hips and belly dancing hypnotised my self-conscience.

    Wayne Campbell: Um, uh...Aerosmith & Pearl Jam!
    Garth Algar: Ha ha ha ha ho!
    Bobby: Who else?
    Garth: Uh, me...and...and Wayne...
    Wayne: ...and uh...VAN HALEN!!!
    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    I would learn from the mistakes of the previous singers

    Gary - don't act like Freddie Mercury
    Sammy - pay attention to singing instead of signing autographs and allow myself to play more obscure songs
    Dave - Don't forget the f*cking words.

    I would play the following songs

    Good Enough
    Romeo Delight
    So This Is Love
    5150
    Without You
    Full Bug
    Summer Nights
    Best of Both Worlds
    Feel Your Love Tonight
    Unchained
    Amsterdam
    Dance the Night Away
    Top of the World
    I'm the One
    Humans Being
    Guitar Solo
    Hot for Teacher
    Runaround
    Panama
    Mean Streets

    and close with
    Drop Dead Legs


    No bass solos, drum solo's or brown M&M's
