    I definitely like the tune, it was just a COLOSSAL mistake to release it as the first single off the album. They obviously should have come out of the gate after all those years with a much bigger bang (Chinatown or Outta Space for example). It would have been like, let's say, they would have released I'll Wait as the first single off of 1984. Could you imagine? But, as a later single it was much better received, because we had already gotten the harder rocking tunes first.
    "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

    I still can't believe they released that as the official video. They weren't even trying.

    You And Your Blues, Outta Space, and Stay Frosty should have been the singles off ADKOT....I still don't like Tattoo.

    I played the whole record last night . "Tattoo" still sounds good to me . It's a fun song and when it comes to the guitar solo - it showed me that 'Eddie was back' . There was a lot of doubt surrounding his chops back then .

    The video was blah , and there was little to no promotion for the album . Other than the cryptic hints and clues that only us diehards picked up on !

    I would've picked YAYB as the first single . It's got a good mix of great playing , witty lyrics , old school-esque background vocals , and a catchy hook .

    Sure, they could've released something different but I still like the song.
