    Definately some timeless tracks in that list. Wish I could have heard it...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    These two NEVER get ANY radio play around here.

    As a side note, our local classic rock station did a top 500, and the highest VH got was #36, with You Really Got Me.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!

    That's cool that VH had 15 songs......but Hot for Teacher at 343??
    And, man, I'm so sick of Jump. That should switch with DOA at 500.

    I don't know why, but about the only Van Halen song I've heard on WEBN in Cincinnati the last few months is Top of the World. WTF?

    I love the song, but still, it is weird that is the only VH song they play much. It used to be (back in the '90s) that you'd hear nothing but DLR era VH songs and rarely heard a track from Sammy. Interesting.
