    Default Van Halen time capsule

    1,000 years from now they dig up one of those time capsules. 1970's to 2020's or so they have a section on Van Halen of course. They have a synopsis of Van Halen. Guitar virtuoso, flamboyant lead singer chemistry, lead singer changes, 1980's Kings, etc... We can put one, and only one VH song in the time capsule to show the future what VH sounded like. Which one song best shows the world the true VH sound. Not your own personal favorite, but the one that totally sounds like unmistakable Van Halen.

    Brown M & M's and Eruption of course! Because that is what Van Halen did. Period.

    'In A Simple Rhyme'
    and it would have to be on vinly.
    Remember when CDs first came out back in the 80's and the maufacturers were claiming they were 'indestructible'. We were told that you'd be able to drive over them with a car and they'd still play perfectly. Well now you only have to look the wrong way at a CD and the f@#king thing will skip.
    A woman drove me to drink...and I never had the decency to thank her!

    Since the initial publication of the charted electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learnt that what they can touch, smell, see and hear is less than one billionth of reality.

    Either that or Jump.

    An item to be put into the capsule would have to be a Kramer guitar with the red, white and black paint job.

    Default re: time capsule

    You're nuts if you pick anything but Mean Street. Ed playing the "bass" line, Mike thundering the bass below the bass, Al doing all those weird syncopated fills, Ed's multiple solos, the breakdown with the voice over, Dave spitting those hard-nosed but somehow wacky lyrics, and those smooth harmonies. Only thing I don't like is the fade. That song should fall in on you, not fade. Only really good fade they did was Summer Nights. "Ahhh-ahhhhh..."

    Couldn't decide which tune to pick, but I think you said it pretty well here with the Mean Street idea.

    Mean Street, Panama, Poundcake, Runnin' With The Devil....Hell all of their CD's plus one of Eddie's Kramers, Mike's Jack Daniels bass, Alex's 1984 four bass drum set, Dave's humor, and Sammy's energy. Don't even add III to it, it would be a waste of space except Dirty Water Dog and Fire in the Hole.
    ALEX IS GOD!!!

    I've been doin' this for 'bout 20 years now, and I'll tell ya, to this day I still don't know the right drumstick from the left drumstick -Alex Van Halen
