    What a jam.

    Damn good live too - Sammy pulled it off.

    That song makes me tired, and I'll I'm doing is sitting there listening to it.

    Phewww....badass.

    I'm always surprised when someone says how much they enjoy this song. IMO it is the worst =VH= song by far, except for The Inside. But opinions are like assholes.

    Default I agree

    I think Big Fat Money is a kick ass song and I think the Inside is a great song. Inside is one of Mikey's best bass lines, great solo, great jam in my opinion. Put these in the car or the whatever real loud, give them another chance if you don't dig them yet.

    I've never understood why Big Fat Money gets ripped on so much. Sure, it's not a typical VH song, but I think it's cool.

    I never understood why but the general concensus around here for years is that BFM and the inside suck. I love them both. They're simple fun songs with a great groove. Kinda like what the majority of the Dave era was like.

    I never really analyzed it that much, I just know that I almost always skip it when it comes up in my iPod shuffle. Absolutely in the bottom half of the VH catalog IMO.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yep, down there next to "Man on a Mission" and "I'll Wait."

    I don't really like Sam's lyrical delivery on that tune but it does kick a fair amount of ass!!!

    I'd rather listen to Strung Out than BFM.
