    Is that the one on the Classic Van Halen website? I agree, it does look like Top Of The Pops.

    Garth: Wow. Van Halen. Who else?
    Bobby: Yeah, who else?
    Wayne: Uh, an old man fashioning a kayak out of a log?

    Wow, as citizen of this wonderful little island, I can't believe I never knew Van Halen were on Top Of The Pops! I don't care if they lip synched, hearing Mean Street on TOTP would be the best thing ever. Back in the 80's, NO ONE performed live on TOTP so probably they didn't even have the equipment to accomodate a real performance. There was a backlash against lip synching on the show in the early 90's so people started playing properly.
    incidentally, the show is on a downward spiral now. It was recently shifted to a Sunday slot after about 40 years showing on Thursday or Friday night.
