    Default What's the deal with Stand Up?

    So did Sammy write this or did somebody in Steel Dragon write it? It's the same damn song with Hagar and Steel Dragon, released within a year of each other? Steel Dragon wasn't a real band but the members are all accomplished musicians, so anybody know the story?

    I don't know if it's on a Hagar album or not, but I LOVE that song! I have the soundtrack of "Rockstar", and I love all the Steel Dragon songs!!

    That song is on Not 4 Sale. According to the liner notes the song was written by Sammy. As you probably know, producers have come to him in the past asking him to write a song for the movie they were making.Not sure if it was wrote specifically for that movie or not.

    i thought the real bands name is "steelheart"
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Nope, he didn't write it for the movie.

    I was at Sammy's birthday bash in Cabo in 1999, and they played that song then. He said it was a new song he wrote that would appear on the next album (which was Ten 13, but they didn't put it on there then).

    But yes, it did appear on "Rock Star" before "Not 4 Sale."

    I don't remember the song, but I know one thing, I am sure that it is better than DLR's Stand Up! from Skyscraper.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Sam wrote the song before Rockstar was released and then let them use it, the guy singing on it for Rockstar is Jeff Scott Soto, the band steelheart did another song that was featured in the movie-We All Die Young, I'm not sure if it's Soto or the guy who sang for steelheart that sings that on the soundtrack....

    Stand Up is an ok track on N4S, I don't like the "humming" at the begining, I do like the part where the band just starts rockin....

    it is better than DLR's stand up IMO but the version on the rockstar soundtrack is better than sammy's version....

    Default Mona On 'Stand Up And Shout'...

    This song, especially, show-cased Mona's bass guitar work quite well, as did most of N4S.

    Yes, the bass sound is quite rich on N4S. That album took me a few listens to warm up to, but I love it now. However, I skip over Whole Lotta Zep each and every time.
