    Default Rank the most recent new songs!

    Now of course for most bands this list would probably be a lot longer, but of course we are talking about Van Halen here. Soooooo, in honor of the last time we got a new song with Dave, we'll start there. Since 1996, we have gotten all of 7 new songs from Van Halen, at least the true Van Halen that really matters, let's be honest (sorry VH3 fans). So, how would you rank those songs? My list would go ..

    1. Me Wise Magic
    2. Can't Get This Stuff No More
    3. Humans Being
    4. Tattoo
    5. It's About Time
    6. Learning To See
    7. Up For Breakfast
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    1.Humans Being (first vh track I heard as a kid, loved Twister)
    2.Can't Get This Stuff No More (great song, love the mood and lyrics)
    3.Up For Breakfast (fuck you all, there's nothing wrong with cliche lyrics. this song rocks)
    4.Tattoo (this song might even top the list if it wasn't for the annoying chorus)
    5.Learning To See (don't like the metal aspect to it, the song seems to be trying to mesh styles, but it's still great)
    6.Me Wise Magic (this song is amazing, just not one of my favorites, incredible guitar)
    7.It's About Time (hideous riff. and THESE are dumb lyrics, because they are supposed to be taken seriously)

    I agree with this, except I would put Humans Being third instead of first. I know that song gets a lot of respect around here, but I really don't like it all that much.
    Van Halen will rock your face off!

    Humans Being (one of the best songs they've ever done)
    Me Wise Magic
    Tattoo/Can't Get This Stuff No More (tie)

    huge gap

    It's About Time (only looks good when compared against the other 2 songs from 2004)
    Up For Breakfast (a giant piece of shit of a song)
    Learning to See (an even bigger piece of shit - i don't get the love people have for this mess)

    Humans Being (one of the most underrated VH songs of ANY time)
    Me Wise Magic (musically incredible, and Mike's harmony is amazing)

    A distant...distant third....

    Tattoo
    Learning To See
    It's About Time
    CGTSNM (worthless)
    Up For Breakfast (also worthless)

    I like all 4 of the following tunes, but Humans Being might be my favorite Van Hagar tune and maybe my 2nd or 3rd favorite of all time.

    Human Being
    Me Wise Magic
    CGTSNM
    Tattoo tattoo tattoo!!!


    All the BOV3 songs belong in place below the shitter. You can at least make compost from shit. I hate those songs with a passion now.

    1. Me Wise Magic (Not a song.. an experience!)
    2. Tattoo (If the [ugh] Police can get away with Roxanne, VH can more than get away with that chorus... it's catchy!)
    3. Humans Being
    4. CGTSNM
    5. Up For Breakfast (I try to not hear the lyrics but the music is great)
    6. It's About Time
    7. Learning To See (Sammy's scream just killed it for me)

    Me Wise Magic (the feeling when this song came out...indescribable)
    Humans Being (not a huge fan of Van Hagar...but this one rocks)
    Tattoo (I like this song more than most)
    Can't Get this Stuff No More (I love it just because of the middle finger at VH)

    The three best of both worlds tracks are meh...Produced horribly and Up for Breakfast may have the worst lyrics written of all time.

    Ugh, I didn't just post that.

    EDIT: can I delete my post?
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.
