    10. You're No Good
    9. Seventh Seal
    8. Poundcake
    7. Without You

    5. Jump
    4. Mean Street

    Really not wanting to be a ball buster but how can you judge an album opener without hearing the rest of the album??

    Technically, Jump and Without You were not the album openers.

    I'd say "Tattoo" would go in 6th or 7th place.

    Tattoo ahead of Mean Street? Really?

    People are just losing their minds here @ the links. Just because something is new?

    Need more time to make that call. Tattoo is still too fresh in my head and I'm too jazzed up to make an accurate decision.

    Technically speaking "1984" is the opener not "Jump" and "Neworld" is the opener not "Without You". Just saying'.

    The only openers I can put Tattoo ahead of are You're No Good and Newworld/Without You and I happen to like Tattoo.

    The best album opener of Van Halen IMO is easily Poundcake.

    You hear the band fucking around in the background for a few seconds and then BOOM!

    Eddie on the drill, Alex with the huge beat, god that was so fucking awesome.

    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"
