    Default Alright you Sinners, Swing!

    Fair Warning seems to be the favorite Van Halen album among the hardcore fans on this website. Unchained won the recent "March Madness Tourney" (to the surprise of nobody) and was voted the band's best song. Mean Street, Dirty Movies, Hear About It Later, Push Comes To Shove, So This Is Love, Sunday Afternoon In The Park and One Foot Out The Door all generally receive mad love around here. Which bring us to Sinner's Swing ...

    I'm pretty sure this song hasn't been played live since the 1981 Fair Warning Tour. What are everybody's thoughts about this often overlooked track from FW? I totally dig Eddie's vicious riff that begins the tune. Dave's borderline vile lyrics fit the music perfectly. Mike and Alex hold it all together like the stellar rhythm section that they always were. It all adds up to 185 seconds of outright fury. I friggin' love this song ...

    "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"

    I've loved it from the first time I heard it. It may be my favorite track on the album.

    Another hidden gem off FW that should get more love. Hopefully, next tour they bust it out.

    Neat riff. Great groove. Insane guitar solo!

    I agree with PoP. Would LOVE to see Wolf convince the old guys to bust this deep cut out for the next tour. A big vicious riff from Ed, and Dave's aggressive lyrics and delivery fit the mood of the riff perfectly. A monster performance from Alex.

    Soon you'll see my silohette darkening your door, I think it's a top 5 solo as well.

    Should there be another tour (fingers crossed) this is a no brainer. I trust in Wolf.

    Not my favorite on the album but its pretty damn close. Songs like this one are the reason the Roth era is known as Classic Van Halen.

    This song is a brute.
    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

    I agree. The opening riff is just super tits. may even be super duper. For sure its a hidden gem. Although we obviously know it as die hards but the average fan doesn't know what they're missing. Fuckin shame.

    Woo
    Alright, you sinners, swing

    Danger in the rear view mirror, there's trouble in the wind
    Badness bringing up the rear, the menace is loose again
    She looks so fucking good, so sexy and so frail
    Something got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to hell

    (And now we're wasting time)
    Now we're wasting time
    (Same ol' pickup lines)
    Same ol' pickup lines
    (And you keep tryin')
    Wow!
    (Don't waste time)

    Ow, come back to your senses baby, we can come to terms
    I can almost t-t-taste it, it burns
    You'd be sittin' pretty but you try to take the fifth
    Wearin' out my welcome, guess I better save my breath, wow!

    (And now we're wastin' time)
    Now we're wastin' time
    (Same ol' pickup lines)
    Same ol' pickup lines
    (And you keep tryin')
    Buddy, you keep tryin'
    (Don't waste time)

    Get get get get get out and push
    Get get get get get out and push
    Get get get get get out and push
    Get get get get get out and push

    Get get get get get out and push
    Get get get get get out and push
    Get get get get get out and push
    Get get get get get out and push

    Soon you'll see my silhouette a-darkening your door
    I can almost t-t-taste it, I want more
    No one's above suspicion, no one's got it wired
    I may burn my fingers, want my iron in that fire

    (And now we're wastin' time)
    Ow! Now we're wastin' time
    (Same ol' pickup lines)
    Same ol' pick up lines
    (And you keep tryin')
    Buddy, you keep tryin'
    (Don't waste time)

    (Wow!)
    Get get get get get out and push
    (Hey, buddy better get out and push)
    Get get get get get out and push
    (Get get get get out and push)
    Get get get get get out and push
    (Buddy, better, get out and push)

    Get get get get get out and push
    (Woo! Oh!)
    Get get get get get out and push
    (Oh whee)
    Get get get get get out and push
    (All right you sinners, swing!)

    This is easily one of my favorite VH songs of all time. A+. You can replace all the platitudes in your life and keep just this one.

    Get get get get get get out and push!

    Yet another brilliant Ed riff and solo.

    I enjoyed Kevin's videos of his son playing these riffs on his replica guitars!
    Great to see the next generation of VH fans being groomed for action.
