    Default The Finals, Van Halen March Madness

    From 128 songs down to the final 2.

    Mean Street vs Unchained

    The opening song on side one of Fair Warning vs the opening song on side two of Fair Warning.

    Mean Street beat Hear About It Later 21-20 on the final vote cast by my good buddy, Hurricane Halen.

    Unchained clobbered Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love 30-11

    Voting for this championship round will continue until the NCAA title game officially ends on Monday night, April 4th.

    It's one of the greatest riffs ever! I just had to go with it.
    They both are, but that one....CVH.

    Just listened to both of the YouTubes above. While it was Mean Street, I was thinking I'd have to vote for it. While it was Unchained I was thinking I'd vote for it. Going to have to consider this some more.

    Unchained.

    As a bass player, I hate it, as outside of a few bars with a nice syncopation underneath the guitar solo, it's really nothing but eighth notes, mostly open E over and over and over.

    But the song has everything:

    Great riffs - check
    Great screams - check
    Great breakdown - check
    Great lyrics - check
    Awesome outro - check
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    LOVE that version. I know he didn't co-write it, and they have to send DLR a check, but that's one song you would think Sam would be like "ok, that song kicks ass, I'll sing that one every night, no problem."

    Mean Street. Probably the closest decision of the tournament for me. My #4 and #5 all time favorite tunes.

    Mean Street.

    the intro to that song is the coolest thing i've ever seen, best thing i've ever heard someone play on guitar.
