    OK, we all have different prefferences for opeing songs for the now 2001 tour.

    I would love to hear them open with "Hot For TEacher."

    That is, because that was the first Van Halen song I ever heard. It came out when I was 4 and I hjave a home movie of myself doing the dance that they did in the video.

    Plus, it would kick ass.

    I think that there is a similar thread to this one, somewhere...

    I think that the ultimate opening song would be "Unchained."

    It gives me chills just thinking about it.

    There have been SEVERAL threads like this, but I'll say again "Everybody Wants Some!!" with the intro drawn out to slowly bring in the musicians out of the darkness!

    "On Fire" would be my choice. I just think that "On Fire" has a real kick-ass start that would get the audience going crazy! Eddie doing those high notes on the guitar than launching in to a heavy ROMP with Al and Mike and David sings some great fucking lyrics on this tune.Peace out.

    There are a lot of great options. Hot For Teacher would be nice because we haven't heard it since 1984. But...Alex starts it and it is the big drum begining. I think I would like to see just Ed start or all of them at once and start rockin' kina like On Fire or start with Panama but like the cd not that intro like they do live.

    I wanna hear a new song right off the bat.

    Kick in their new found friendship with something that is current, reflecting what they've been so silent about.

    I agree with Billy007......'Everybody Wants Some' or 'Panama' with the drum intro, that would be cool.

    Give me "Romeo Delight" as the opener and somewhere in the show include "Secrets", "Hear About It Later", and a screaming version of "Mean Streets".

    Life would be complete.
