    Default Tatoo Sales Figures

    Heard on Stern this morning that Tatoo is doing extremely well. Before Robin could give the details they cut into playing the song discussing how much better it gets everytime they hear it.

    Anyone know exactly where it is on the charts and how many downloads the first week had? I knew it was doing well when my 19 year old daughter txted me she can't stop listening to it and that it is her favorite song. (yes I raised her correctly!)

    Sorry did not see the other thread. Still cool to hear Stern raving about it and they thought the sales were strong enough to discuss.

    Awesome. I'm curious what details Robin was about to give out. The lack of a leak is helping tremendously. I hope it turns some cd's. Most of the thrill to me when downloading is getting the thing before it drops. Then when it drops I already have it and I'm less likely to buy it unless I really like it. That's just honesty. I'll buy anything VH regardless, but if you apply that wave of thought to the average casual fan, it may translate to many more units sold.

    The Tattoo video has gone viral and racked up 2.2 million views on Youtube in just a week, which has probably helped sales significantly.

    Out of curiosity, at what point is a video considered "gone viral"? Is it a certain amount of hits over a certain amount of time?

    Yes. I don't know if there is any real number associated with the word viral but basically yes. The 2.2 million youtube plus 675k on vimeo would safely constitute "viral."

    Just go to google news for Van Halen. The video is on a lot of blogs and Van Halen news stories.

    I think the single is doing much better than anyone could have hoped, especially since it really isn't a great song, just a good song.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    I tried explaining to someone who made the "why bother making videos since MTV doesn't play them anymore" statement that it is worth it. I got shot down right away ofcourse.

    No reflection on the song or it's success. I like it. Unfortunately, Stern is tone deaf and can't even tell if someone is singing in key. Can't wait to see him on AGT saying, "...It sounds good to me..." over and over.

    According to the Americas Music Charts website, it debuted at #5 on the Rock chart:

    http://www.americasmusiccharts.com/i...casmusiccharts

    It placed #21 on the Active Rock chart:

    These are based on amount of radio airplay spins around the country.

    Odds are good that a certain percentage of that "viral" has been active members here and the Army watching the video repeatedly since it was released...

    Sure maybe 100,000 at the most, that leaves about 2.5 million

    Tattoo is doing EXACTLY what is what supposed to do. Whether people like Van Halen or the song or not, both are in public conscience and getting mainstream media coverage. I won't be surprised if "Tattoo" like "Jump" from 1984, will be the most commercial song and thus the best song to get the band out there. If they released say, "Bullethead" in the heavy, hard rock incarnation we die hard fans know, it would get little or no traction on pop charts. Not saying WE wouldn't like it but it wouldn't be radio/commercial friendly. I could care less about pop charts but obviously record companies do and that's why bands' like Van Halen lead off with singles which sound restrained by our ears standards. The best is yet to come. I can feel it.

    My question is: Is CORPORATE (Cumulus and Clear Channel... ahem..not to mention names) supporting the single and mandating it be played once an hour on the major stations like Taylor Swift, Lady A, Rihanna, Beyonce, etc?

    If not, the single won't take off like I think it should.
