    Default The Ultimate Van Halen "Swagger" Album ...

    Inspired by japeape's suggestion, pick one song from each of VH's dozen studio albums (yes, even VH III) which you feel has the most "swagger", "edge", "balls", "groove" etc. Let's see how long we can go without the junior high school histrionics ...

    VH - I'm The One
    VH II - Light Up The Sky
    WACF - Romeo Delight
    FW - Sinner's Swing
    DD - The Full Bug
    1984 - Girl Gone Bad
    5150 - Good Enough
    OU812 - Black And Blue
    FUCK - Runaround
    Balance - Aftershock
    VH III - Fire In The Hole
    ADKOT - She's The Woman
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    Nah. Just being funny.

    My choices are probably the same as everybody else.

    Except III. It doesn't exist to me. I know nothing about that album except how horrible HMSI is.

    I almost went with Top Jimmy, too.

    That song almost defines swagger!

    "Dontcha feel nice?" was the working title.
