    Vead Or Alive? No really, I'm not sure what the letters stand for but VOA is a Sammy Hagar solo album from 1984. The song VOA is said to be Sammy's response to Russia pulling out of the 1984 Olympics.

    I think it stands for "Voice Of America" - there was (is?) a radio network by that name. Not a Sammy fan, so just a guess.

    From what I understand, Voice of America is/was a U.S. radio network that would beam pro-American programs into Communist-bloc countries during the Cold War.

    I remember the VOA album but i have no idea whether it stands for Voice of America.

    On that album he also has the song VOA and he sings "...the voice of America" I've probably listened to it a million times.

    I don't remember the specifics, but Sammy actually was commended on the song by Ronald Regan. Sammy's response had something to do with "can you do something about that 55mph bit for me?"
