    What songs sound best in GOOD car/home sound systems?

    I've noticed that some songs sound REALLY GOOD, even better than usual, on really GOOD car/home sound systems! Personally, I think that if I had to choose one song from each era, I'd go with "Unchained", as the guitar, drums, and ESPECIALLY the BASS, REALLY BUMP! You really appreciate Mikey's bass playing on this song (and album, FAIR WARNING) when you have good, clean, subwoofers! "Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do)", because the guitar is SO DIRTY & SO LOW (it's an open low "E" string for the opening & rhythm), that you can even hear it hit the subs a little! Of course, Alex's drum-playing is superb, as usual. With Gary, I'd go with "Dirty Water Dog", since it's got a "dirty-sounding" guitar playing, and drums that BUMP on good subs!
    You may choose as many songs as you'd like, as I love so many, I just named a few. What do you guys think?

    Mean Street was the first song I ever plated on my car CD player back in the early 90's. To this day, it is my favorite song to play on an expensive system and loud and proud.

    I really enjoy the live version of Dreams from RHRN. Talk about breaking some windows.

    Default Many songs

    There is a bunch of great songs from Van Halen you can hear on the car/home as loud as possible. For example: listening to "Top Jimmy", which was recorded with the Steve Ripley guitar, is an amazing experience. You put it on 10 and thru away the volume knob. Man, it's scary! Another tune that works the same is "Drop Dead Legs"; the solo section is a killer one and the way Alex recorded his stuffs collaborates a lot to make this song a great piece of music - I like the way his ride cymbal sounds in this track.

    EVH: "Sure. What's the difference? It's got six strings... It's a guitar!" - 31.12.1978

    In the car: Summer Nights or Good Enough
    On the home stereo: Poundcake, Humans Being or Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do.
    Crap, who am I kidding. It doesn't really matter as long as it's really friggin' loud.
