    Default No More Waiting (Get Off My Back)



    Been listening to a lot of the band's club days tunes lately, and this has to be one of my favorites. I love the groove and the sound of this one! Ed's guitar (at least to me) has a very raw edge to it, which I think is awesome. What are your favorites from their club days?

    Down In Flames. I always thought that would have fit perfect on Van Halen II.

    Well now we know where that intro came from.
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    Totally Agree. I wish they did "Down In Flames" instead of using the riff for "You're No Good"

    IMO... probably the Best Unreleased VH track.

    Right behind that would be "Here's Just What She Wanted"

    I have this song live, probably the one on the youtube thing that I'm listening to right now; I don't think I have a studio version. I have the Looney Tunes and Gene Simmons demos, but I don't think Down In Flames is on there. When did they write that and why wouldn't it be on the demos? Maybe it is and I'm too lazy to check it out right now. I'm going back upstairs to continue watching the best boot in the history of the fucking world; VAN HALEN MONTREAL 1984. I'm right at Mikey's solo.

    By the way, Dave's scream at 4:33 of Down In Flames is one of my favorite's he's ever done.

    Back to the Bud Select's for me my friends, see you at the Scott Trade Center for the MIGHTY VAN HALEN in 26 days.

    Wow! Awesome Find! Take Me Back is in the intro. I would have never guessed that those chords were leftover from a Roth track.
