    Default Which is the better album opener?




    I like both but Last temptation grabs me a bit more probably due to the more melodic chorus.

    Revolution for me, not even close.

    One of the great songs they did.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

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

    Lighten Up should've been the opener on III.

    Avenida by a country mile.

    Whenever Sammy doesn't write about pussy, we generally have a winner, lyrics-wise.

    I'd have to go with Last Temptation.
    Always seem to hear that song at the club when ever I stop in.

    Last Temptation. It's got a great chorus.

    Something never sat quite right with me and Avenida Revolution.

    Revolution.
    Sadly, I didn't like a single song off the second record.
