    'Eruption' was on the list and that's what I voted for.

    There were so many great ones to choose from but I went with the iconic one.

    I wanted to vote for Secrets or China Town, but neither was there. So I went with 5150, say what you will about the Hagar era and I know we're all spinning from the new album/tour with Roth, but that song showed off Eddie at all his strongest points. The riff, the solo, and the song writing. It's almost the perfect Eddie track, very action packed.

    BTW, does anyone else find it weird that Humans Being, Don't Tell Me, or Loss of Control's solos were missing from that list? Those were pretty great too, if you ask me.

    Hot For Teacher won't get any love around here because it's a radio hit but that solo is brilliant.


    I'll vote for Ice Cream Man. Been a favorite for 30+ years. Can't construct a solo much better than that.

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Well, my favourite, "Humans Being", isn't on the list - so I'm not voting on principle.

    5150 is about a perfect Van Halen song.

    I'm still scratching my head how that was off the set list for the last four tours with Sam.

    Not the show I saw.

    Of course, Sam had a bad cold and they mentioned they had to cut the show a little bit. It would be just my luck if 5150 was one they decided to cut.
