    Default For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge turns 25 today!!!

    Van Halen's third album with singer Sammy Hagar, ninth album overall, "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" was released on this date back in 1991!!

    It debuted at #1 on Billboard where it remained for 3 weeks. The album went triple platinum in the US alone and had 3 singles hit #1 on the Billboard Rock Chart with Poundcake, Runaround & Top Of The World. The single Right Now hit #2 on that chart and also won the MTV "Video of the Year" award.

    For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge would also go onto winning a Grammy, Billboard and American Music Award.

    An album that was promoted as a return to their hard rock roots after the more diverse 5150 & OU812 albums. There were no synths on these track and only one contained piano.

    A great time to be a VH fan!!! Happy 25th to my favorite rock album of all time!!

    Nothing but great memories of that era and tour!!!

    Fave tracks are Poundcake, Judgement Day, Pleasure Dome & Top Of The World
    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    Love the For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge era. The band and performances were tight. The '91-'93 era saw Van Halen at it's best. The album included some of Van Hagar's coolest tracks. Interestingly, it is my least favorite of the Van Hagar albums because it lacked diversity and keyboards. Poundcake, Runaround, and Top of the World are my favorite tracks.

    My F.U.C.K. Reboot on my IPod is as follows:

    Poundcake
    Judgment Day
    The Dream is Over
    Pleasure Dome
    Runaround
    Right Now
    316
    Top of the World

    love the record. tied with 5150 as my fav VH release.

    Production is perfect IMHO. Big, powerful drums, in your face bass. Great stuff.

    I listen to this all the time.

    Great album. Shitty title.

    Bought the CD at lunch and a cassette tape also to listen on the way back to work. Young with disposable income.

    Released on the 18th, the entire year following was a great time to be Van Halen liking person.

    Bought it the day it was released at a now defunct Sam Goody's in Cerritos, CA. Saw them 4 times on the tours supporting the album. Favorite tracks are Poundcake, Runaround and The Dream Is Over.

    Wow, Sam Goody's. I bought mine at The Wherehouse on the first day. I miss those old record stores. Licorice Pizza, Tower, Virgin Megastore. Bought it with a gift certificate my brother gave me for my birthday on the 15th. He said "now you can be the first one on your block to go buy the new Van Halen". Good memories.

    I saw them five times during the F.U.C.K. era: 3 times on the F.U.C.K. tour and twice on the Live: RHRN tour. Saw them back-to-back nights in Cincy and Louisville. Awesome every night.

    I remember them playing Neli Young's Rockin' In The Free World as an encore while a small group of guys were moshing around a bonfire on the lawn at the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, CA

    Dream is Over and Judgement Day are the best tracks. I always thought the album cover looked like a red football.

    Heh, I was there too and remember that as well. That was my first VH concert.

    Went out with my dad a couple days later and got my first guitar.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Bought it as soon as it came out. I was stationed in Germany in the Army at the time. The guys in my barracks were forced to listen to it with me for weeks non stop. I remember one of my buds said "When you first started playing that every day I was so damn sick of it, but now that I've heard it over and over it really rocks!" lol
