    Default Bullethead - Official Thread

    It is great that there is starting to be a dedicated thread for each new song. In case VAN HALEN doesn't include lyrics in the cd booklet, I think it would be cool to also have a dedicated thread to deciphering the lyrics to each song (the lyrics should have their own thread, especially since some of the song discussion threads are already 50+ pages long). Just maybe it will encourage Dave to make a video for each song, detailing the thought-process behind each lyric, just like he did with TATTOO.

    Using the 90 second clip of Bullethead...




    ...just to piss me off!

    Boldly going nowhere.
    Trouble busting through.
    Yeah, I'm rolling slowly.
    But I'm ahead of you!

    Bullethead!
    I'm movin' to your crazy dance.
    Mullethead!
    Got a different kind of true.
    Bullethead!
    Just one danger.
    I got just one view.

    Well, I'm a lovin' my horn, baby.
    Well I'm a Bullethead.
    Come-a, come-a, come-a, come-a, baby!
    Well I'm a [?]hill.
    Hurt me!

    Solo

    Traffic is giving you trouble?
    I can feel your pain.
    No light at the end of the tunnel?
    Do the bungeeman straight!
    Some days you're the dog.
    Some days you're the high prince.
    If everything is going your way,
    You're facing the wrong plane.

    Bullethead!
    I'm movin' to your crazy dance.


    Not sure about the accuracy of some of these lyrics, but I am amazed at how good, deadly, and intelligent they are.

    Pretty sure it's "got a different kind of truth"

    Just before "hurt me" he just says well I'm a bullethead, again

    some days your the dog, some days you're the hydrant

    Definitely on "hydrant." Thanks. Not sure on "true" versus "truth" (no "th" sound at all) and on just repeating "Well I'm a Bullethead" again (it sounds different).

    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.

    Only makes what is happening now seem even more remarkable. I don't think Dave forgets for one moment and that is why he is bringing it in spades on the new album.

    This is one of the demos I'm not really familiar with. Are these new lyrics?

    Other than the title it seems like they're new lyrics.

    There is no studio demo of it, most well-known (and I think only known one around) version of it is the Whisky '77 show.

    Heh....I always liked the song 'cause it sounded angry, like they were trying take off on The Ramones or something. I laughed when I saw that it was coming out on ADKOT and I think the new version is fucking awesome too. Makes me think Wolfgang pushed for it being on there because it's so punk-ish.
    We train dogs for cattle and sheep herding. They're very different. Sheep are a lot like supermodels - they bunch together, they rattle very easily. Cattle are like drunks at a hockey game - two will want to fight: "Who are you and what's with your badge?"

    Two of them will be like: "Leave them alone, let's go see the game." Another one is lost: "Where'd you guys go?" The dog has to deal with all of that. You work them off a whistle. It's the original video game.

    Van Halen reminded us last night of why we loved them in the first place. They helped us to get past all the bullshit around us and remind us to have a little fucking fun in the midst of it all. - Reckless Fable
