    How about Big Trouble DLR solo vs Big Trouble VH demo?
    That would be a good one, also.

    5150 - which would have sounded even better if produced properly.

    WCTBL got the band on the radio, got people interested and did exactly what it was supposed to do. I know it gets ragged on because it's a poppier song but it's really a great song, it's not a rocker but it's not intended to be either. I do like Goin Crazy...I liked it better in 86 than now. If I had to vote I'd go WCTBL

    There are several songs on 5150 that are better than WCTBL, just as there are several songs on Diver Down that are better than (Oh) Pretty Woman and on ADKOT that are better than Tattoo.

    I think WCTBL is one of the best Hagar tunes. Though it'ss totally smoked by the majesty of When It's Love and the epicness of the 'na na na-na na na's'. I can only imagine the goosebumps they all must have felt as that was coming together in the studio. Van Hagar may not have been the heaviest but fuck me they were unparalleled at the radio-friendly stuff.

    Agreed. I think WCTBL was a good first single but I def donít think itís the best song on 5150.

    The originals on DD are mind blowingly awesome. The Full Bug is such a bad ass song.

    Goin Crazy reminds me of Little Guitars...both cool songs

    I would say EVERY song on each of those albums is better than each of those 3 songs. WCTBL was definitely a HUGE letdown. A bottom 5 all time VH tune for me. Boring drums, boring riff, boring "solo" with Sam scatting over the top of it, and I dont like the keyboard sound on it either. Thank goodness the rest of the album was miles better than WCTBL and LWI.

    Default 5150 or Big Trouble....Go!

    You need to use your pinky to play a lot of shit correctly. It bugs me when you see guys that never use their pinkies. You know theyíre just limited as players. Even non-shredders use their pinkies.

    I like WCTBL as well. Would like it better as a guitar tune, but it's still a cool tune. Now, LWI is a different story....
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    I wouldn't go so far as to put WCTBL in the bottom 5. Also, I like Love Walks In. A lot.
