    Van Halen has put out some pedal to the metal tunes over the years. How would you guys rank these fast songs.

    DOA's great, but I don't think it counts as fast!

    Just a few off the top...

    Ain't Talkin' (actually not sure if it counts either)

    Sinner's Swing!, definitely....what's the other one..... So This Is Love? (Nobody else put this!? sheesh!)

    Girl Gone Bad is good and fast...what about Top Jimmy, does that count as fast?

    Mine All Mine

    Runaround (it ought to be played at a frenetic pace, anyway)

    Well, once again, Synthy is wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wonrg.

    (And wrong. )

    DOA is fast. I didn't notice the speed at which Eddie hits his notes. You really have to pay attention.

    It's not as fast as "I'm The one" or "Romeo Delight" but Al's drumming switches up so many times during the song, and at the end...

    And I did say, "Deceptively quick."

    Oh, and if "DOA" doesn't count, neither does "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" !
