    Default Hang 'Em High Vs. Bottoms Up

    These two songs may be among the top five most underrated gems ever. Especially Hang 'Em High. Why doesn't anybody like this Diver tune? It's one of only 4 original tunes on DD, not including instrumentals, and it hardly ever gets props. I guess Full Bug, Secrets, and Little Guitars get all the glory. But let's face it...Ed is RIPPING on this track.

    And Bottoms Up...hell, they used to play it live all the time. Great tune. Classic II sound. Classic Dave prowling.
    Classic Fuck You Van Halen.

    Between 'em, I'm giving the edge to BU, but not by much.

    Hang Em High is a much stronger tune in my opinion.

    Tough call. Hang 'em High is very underated and off my very first VH album. I remember playing that song over and over. Still, VHII holds a place in my heart so..bbbb,baby...bottoms up!

    Both are great but I'll give the edge to Hang 'Em High. One of the bright spots on DD.

    Hang Em High hands down, Ed is a fuckin animal in this tune, not to mention Al as well, plus the production is much better on DD, never cared for the overall production of VHII.

    I gotta go with Bottoms Up! Never thought Hang 'Em High was anything fantastic.

    Funny how these two selections are sorta split down the middle in popularity....I kinda figured that. Weird.

    Hang em High by a long shot. Not a big fan of Bottom's Up....

    Funny thing, I never used to like Hang'em High at all , but once I just focused on the music.....it's a fuckin killer song....
