    Default Your least favorite song on each album list

    So Coulda is always putting together "best" lists. I thought I would try something different. This is Van Halen so it will be challenging.

    What is your least favorite tune on each album? You can either include or omit instrumentals, it's up to you.

    Here's Mine:

    Van Halen: Atomic Punk. Such a tough album to pick a "least favorite" song off of. But out of the 11 tracks, that's the one I'd choose. There's just something about it that doesn't get me juiced like the others. Maybe the lack of harmonies?

    Van Halen II: Outta Love. Kind of like with Atomic Punk from the first one. I think the riff is kind of boring.

    WACF: I know JD will hate me for this but I just don't dig Loss of Control all that much.

    Fair Warning: Push Comes To Shove. Ed's solo is fantastic. The rest of the tune falls a little flat.

    Diver Down: Dancing in the Streets. I hate that fucking song. Ed, Al, and Mike at least make it tolerable.

    1984: Top Jimmy. Was going to take the easy way out and list 1984, but it's really an intro to Jump.

    5150: Why Can't This Be Love? Enough said.

    OU812: A Apolitical Blues. At least on the CD version. Just not a good song IMO.

    FUCK: In N' Out. Just falls flat. Sam's lyrics are actually kind of thought provoking but the music is pedestrian by VH standards.

    Balance: Seventh Seal. Just don't really like it. Kind of sounds like a rehash of Poundcake in spots. On my bootleg CD from the Holland gig it actually is listed as Poundcake so someone agrees with me. Whether they're knowledgeable or not is a different story.

    VH III: How Many Say I. Enough said. Worst song in the entire Van Halen catalog, even counting "Zero."

    A Different Kind of Truth: Trouble With Never. It's okay. I guess. I like the high dyad stabs that Ed plays in the verses.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Damn! I dislike CSLY enough that I forgot it was even on Balance. And I can't edit. Oh well, mark me down for CSLY even though I don't like Seventh Seal all that much either.

    VH- Little Dreamer. Good song and glad it's on there for the change of pace, but compared to the rest, it's a bit bland. I wish Alex had done more on it. The live versions on the DD tour and 2007 are way superior due to Al's playing and Ed's cool use of the flanger on the riff throughout.

    VHII- Beautiful Girls. I know I'll get skewered for this, but it's always been my least favorite on a stellar album, even though it's a great example of that VH swing.

    WACF- Sorry, Show, can't do it. Can't bring myself to pick on any track on the Perfect Album.

    FW- Damn. So This Is Love? Love every track.

    DD- DITS. Like Show, just not a fan of this song, though VH's is the best version.

    1984- 1984, although it's cool.

    5150- WCTBL. Bleh. The very definition of a bland pop tune.

    OU812- A Apolitical Blues. Singing the blues is not Sam's forte.

    FUCK- Spanked...

    Balance- Not Enough. It's too much.

    III- HMSI. WTF?!

    ADKOT- Tattoo. Like it just fine, but the weakest track on a powerhouse comeback.

    VH I-You Really Got Me If I have to pick one, I guess it's that one
    VH II-D.O.A. I like it a lot, but not as much as the other tracks
    WACF- Everybody Wants Some/Could This Be Magic Don't really like either song, tie
    FW-....ummm....ummm....I guess Unchained if I have to pick one
    DD-Dancing in the Street/Pretty Woman/WHATGTG I can almost throw a dart at the songs on that one and hit one I don't like
    1984-Top Jimmy
    5150-WCTBL
    OU812-Source of Infection/Apolitical/Suck 3 Piece/AFU Another dart album
    F**K-....ummm...ummm....I guess Poundcake if I've gotta pick one
    Balance-CSLU
    VH III-Can't lose here....dart time
    ADKOT-The Trouble with Never

    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!
