    I caught a few minutes of 'Cheech and Chong's Next Movie' and I noticed that the license plate on the back of the convertible 'vette read OU812...that makes the most sense of how that album title came about...party on!

    If there's a connection, that album gives Cheech & Chong a bad name! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I rather think it's a call and response.

    Dave releases Eat 'Em And Smile
    Van Halen releases OU812

    makes more sense to me.

    Dr. Love you are completely right, they named the album OU812 in response to DLR's EEAS.

    I heard it was a little of both. The DLR album came out, then they got the idea from watchin' the movie!
    How to make a “Mad Anthony”

    2 oz Cabo Wabo® Tequila
    1 oz Spicy V8
    Juice from a fresh Lime
    A generous dollop of Mad Anthony’s Hot Sauce
    Combine in a shaker full of ice and shake it up
    Pour into shot glass garnished with
    a dab of salt
    a small slice of lime
    a slice of Serrano or Jalapeno chili pepper

    perhaps 5150 is a response to Crazy from the Heat?

    Agreeable, 5150 is supposed to be a police code for a crazy person. If Crazy from the heat was a knock at VH ( VH is crazy from the heat of DLR) then VH naming 5150 would be acknowledging they were indeed crazy.

    The phrase "OU812" appeared in the TV show "Taxi", and it pre-dated "Cheech and Chong's Next Movie" by a few years, so that phrase must have been around a while in the 1970s:

    I'm touched that Dave may have been the cause for OU812.

    Original singers never die, they just fade into album titles.

    I recall the interview Van Halen did when they released the album, and if you notice the expressions on Ed,Al,MIke, &Sam, they all have a blank look on their facrs like Dave did on EEAS. They did this purpously, to say to Dave OH, YOU ATE ONE TOO??
    This is what I recall the band saying.
