    If I was a drummer I'd probably think differently. Al is probably the best one on that track.

    I don't hate it but it's not a fave. I like Outta Love better, but it's not a fave either.

    I'd still take both of those over some of the poppy Sam shit like FSG and WCTBL.

    It's funny because asking me what VH song I like the least is like asking me what family member I like the least. Even FSG and WCTBL I like better than a lot of stuff from other bands.

    That's the standard that Van Halen set that I think those are crap songs compared to the rest of the catalogue.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I was mainly messing with you, but seriously, to me the brothers are just an absolute tour de force on LOC. Same with OLA.

    Yeah, I don't think I actually dislike any VH songs, except HMSI and probably Not Enough, even though I definitely bad mouth some things like WCTBL a lot. Pretty much for the reason you stated. For a lot of bands, a tune like WCTBL or Not Enough would be decent, but for VH It's just bad because I expect a lot more from them.

    I don't know, I think I dislike WCTBL, too.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    On the 11 Dave/Sammy albums, the only track I'll skip is "Loss of Control." I never liked it.

    There's only one Sammy song I skip - A Apolitical Blues -, yet several from Dave that I don't fawn over, and a couple from Gary.

    "Van Halen was never about the singer..." - a very wise fan.

    I don't skip any VH until I get to OU812 and each album thereafter.
    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!

    I really like Black And Blue and Source Of Infection. Sucker is okay. I hate A Apolitical Blues.

    SOI is a damn barn burner that you just have to tune out Sam's lyrics and vocals.

    That one and Black and Blue are probably my two faves on that album.

    But I ain't gonna tell you you're wrong. You like what you like and I agree with you about AAPB.

    If we were going to go in chronological order starting with VHI my first skipper would be WCTBL.

    Wow, Dreams?

    What dont you like about it?

    I hate DITS too as far as a song but VH polished that turd about as good as could be done.

    Really wish Dave would have come up with original lyrics and a melody for that one because I like the music.

    I hate the original probably because of that awful Bowie/Jagger video, but I think the music that Van Halen produced on that one was really good. And I love Ed's solo.

    Yep, the music is fine, but I just don't like the song DITS, although VH's version is the best. They should've had Dave come up with original lyrics and vocal melodies for that music as you said.

    I skip both DITS and PW about half the time, but that's it from the six pack. After that, my regular skips were WCTBL, LWI, FSG, Spanked, In And Out, Right Now, CSLY, BFM, Not Enough, Feelin(except for the AWESOME pre solo and solo).

    Sucker and AFU remain my favorites, easily, from OU812. Black And Blue is a great tune as well. SOI has awesome music, and like you said, just tune out Sam's lyrics and awful screaming and pretend it's an instrumental. I guess I'm one of the few that digs AAB lol.

    Nothing gets skipped on ADKOT, except occasionally Tattoo.
