    It's one of those "we're real deep cats, check out this song!"

    I hate the overly dramatic intro, and i really hate the goofy keyboards when the tempo
    change commences.
    Then Sammy comes in & makes it worse...

    Even the guitar solo sounds out of tune, at one point, like Kirk Hammett dropped by the
    studio.

    Just a dated, 90's sounding musical turd.

    Jape, this almost sounds as if you don't like it.

    And I hate that it's a staple of Sam Halen. I don't care about winning any MTV video award or the message. It's a fucking sports anthem now, along with Gary Glitter.

    Doug Steele, who does some truly awesome VH guitar lessons on YouTube refers to a lot of the Sammy era as "jock rock".

    Doug is correct.

    CVH reeked of late nights, mounds of coke & girls dressed in short skirts.

    Sam Halen reeked of Locker rooms, date rape & hotdogs!

    I'm being awful, i know.

    I do think 5150 & OU812, and even LWAN, are great documents of that era.

    Ethyl Rose would be a killer band name.
