    Default What is the best Van Halen song to honor the 4th of July?

    Since Independence Day never came to fruition, I vote for this one ...

    In the 80's, I went to White Rock Lake in Dallas with a boom box, and I played LUTS, and parents with 5 year olds frowned on it.

    Top of the World has a pretty good singalong chorus and feel IMO.
    Of course, Dreams would be a great choice and has a positive and uplifting vibe. And apparently that branch of the U.S. Military thought the same way. Doesn't get much more patriotic or motivational than that!

    And as far as a mental image of fireworks etc, I agree that LUTS is a superb selection. Good call.

    Dreams.

    The derivatives actually have some legit ones: Yankee Rose, All American, Remember the Heroes, VOA, Eagles Fly, When I'm President, and Over There (Hurtsmile).

    Yankee Rose is perfect but for VH....I'd go with Dreams.

    Unless you guys celebrate the fourth differently than I do.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

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