    Default Most Underrated Songs of the Hagar Era

    I know many of us on this board may not find these songs underrated, but they likely are from a casual fan perspective. As such, the fans miss out on these gems from the Hagar era.

    5150
    Mine All Mine
    AFU
    Cabo Wabo
    Judgment Day
    Pleasure Dome
    The Dream is Over
    The Seventh Seal
    Amsterdam
    Take Me Back

    Songs that I think don't get enough love on this board:

    When It's Love
    Feels So Good
    Spanked
    CSLY
    Amsterdam (lyrics)
    Big Fat Money

    I'm with you up thru Pleasure Dome for sure.

    The 2nd list maybe WIL could use more love as a perfect, beautiful ballad type songs great for weddings.
    But the rest of those tunes on your list I'd rather not think about.

    Lots (millions !) of people know the singles and video hits from the Sammy years , yet many of the lesser known tunes are just as amazing . Yes ... just like folks refer to the 6 pack having 'gems' and 'deep cuts' , the Sam era has 'em too !!!

    Some of mine are ; Good Enough , Love Walks In , 5150 , Inside , Mine All Mine , Cabo Wabo , Source of Infection , Dream is Over , Pleasure Dome , Man on a Mission , In 'n' Out , Top of the World , Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do) , Not Enough , Aftershock , Learning to See .

    When It's Love is an incredible song, the other four are among the worst songs that VH has ever put to tape in my opinion. Can't stand them, never listen to them. Especially Feels So Good and Spanked.

    Now before I am labeled a hater, you do list the three songs on Balance that I don't like, but all the other ones on Balance I play the hell out of.
    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!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Both lyrically and musically, "Mine All Mine" is one the bands finest songs - with a sweet, quintessential Ed solo to boot. To this day, it still surprises me how little recognition this track gets.

    The most under-rated of all this magic period was "Big fat money". loved it the first time I heard it, and still do.

    cant understand the rap it gets.

    the only hagar era songs I'm not a big fan of is...

    Why cant this be love
    Source of infection
    Man on a mission
    and the songs from
    Best of both worlds (o4)
    What is understood need not be discussed

    Me neither. I think it's a cool little rocker.

    "Big Fat Money" is what ultimately led to the demise of the Sammy era of Van Halen, and I'm not talking about the song.
