    Default Sinner's Swing vs. Take Your Whiskey Home

    Time for a real poser in these 'versus' thingie threads.

    Normally I'd always go with the Fair Warning tune, because I'm hard-wired to do so and hardly ever can't circumvent my programming to give 'Warning its constant accolades.

    But Whiskey is both Dave warbling in Black Oak perfection, and Ed SHREDDING in unison, a Halen classic that, apparently, often goes overlooked, I have no idea why.

    Then again, Sinner's Swing is true blue core Halen. NOW we're wasting time.

    Amazing as it is, I'm going with Whiskey.

    No, wait...Sinner's Swing. She looks so FUCKIN' good...

    I can't decide. I think I'm headed for a whole lotta trouble...

    No...it's Whiskey by a hair. A tiny, frail, whisp of an old man's combover cowlick hair.

    Can't beat Sinners Swing. Top 5 song for me.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    Well, I would usually go for Sinner's Swing, but I hafta go with Take Your Whiskey Home for certain reasons I will NOT go into on here!
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches. Hiding my hands that tremble like earthquakes. Under the table, under the daytime sky, Good Fucking Bye- Good Fucking Bye, Alkaline Trio

    I'd have to give this to TYWH just for Ed's acoustic playing alone, the way that he can exacute that attack on the acoustic is just awsome. Anyone that says he can't play the blues is a fuckin idiot.

    You're preachin' to the choir, bub.

    There is no finer rock album in existence. Yeah, I said it before and I'll say it again. Do you hear me, Physical Graffiti? Zoso? Sticky Fingers? Abbey Road? Highway to Hell? Moving Pictures? Appetite for Destruction? Toys in the Attic? And you two star pupils as well, VH1 and 1984. I love you all, but...bow your asses down before your unchained master...

    Sinner's Swing! One of the most overlooked tracks on FW. That song kicks ass all the way through. I've never been crazy about TYWH, just seems like an average song to me.

    Sinner's freakin' Swing fo' sho'...

    It's got everything great about CVH. From the coked-out swing beat to Dave's ear piercing screams which are perfectly placed giving way to the young Edward unleashing one of his best shredders, not to mention prime cut DLR lyrics and the signature VH backing vocals, Sinner's Swing is unparalleled.

    It's in my top one.

    TYWH kicks ass, too

    I love Fair Warning and love Sinner's Swing, but I also think its perhaps the weakest song on the album, and I'm gonna have to go with Take Your Whiskey Home. It rocks on so many different levels!
