    Default House of Pain

    "JUMP AROUND" Just kidding. I've floated around here for years and I never hear too much talk about this song. It's my favorite VH song ever since I got in trouble in 5th grade for cranking up the song when it was a b-side of Jump during a Jump Rope -A -Thon. I think it is one of the best VH songs ever written. The last song on the last album in the CVH years. What do you all think? Anyone else think this song is under-rated?

    I still think the vocals are too low on the mix....but a great heavy song by Eddie and Co.
    Just go for it!

    Seems to me the only thing the two songs have in common now is the title.

    Say you're gonna leave me cause I only tie you up.
    I always love you tender but you only like it rough

    This song kicks some major ass. I've heard that Alex really fought to have this one on the album. Glad he did.

    I agree with that. It is tough to make out what Dave is singing at times, the guitar playing is awesome in it though, especially at the end of the song.

    Don't like the lyrics on this at all, but love the song. Al and Mike really pound out the beat underneath Eddie's solo. They sound extremely tight- often under-rated rythmn section.

    For whatever reason, I've always been just luke warm on this song. Sometimes I'm in the mood for it and I really crank it, but for the most part I'd say it's always been in my bottom 5 of all Classic VH.

    My bottom 5 CVH consists of:

    House Of Pain
    Outta Love Again
    Loss Of Control
    Could This Be Magic
    Push Comes To Shove

    Please keep in mind this does not reflect that I don't like these songs....I do. But in terms of CVH there has to be 5 songs at the bottom, right?
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Took me a few days to check back. I know not everyone will like it, but a bottom 5? Heres my CVH bottom 5..... I only came up with one and I won't tell so I won't be attacked I think it's at least a top 5 CVH song.

    I love all the 3 versions of this song. The ones from the Demo versions are great (Gene Simmons's DT and the Warner Bros. DT). But I really prefer the "1984" version, 'cos it has that superb guitar intro that sounds awesome every time I listen to this tune.

    House of Pain is a straight up rocker, with cool guitar and drum licks. I like the lyrics Dave wrote on this one. Let's not leave out Mikey, he is locked in on the groove like a mad man!!

    Some days I prefer the demo version. Though I do chuckle to myself sometimes when Dave does the real low "House of Pain" growl on the demo. I can see Gene Simmons having to coax Dave into that.
    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!
