    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    i'm the one..no question

    song is downright DIRTY, just FILTHY!

    great lyrics
    mike's epic harmonies
    even some killer acapella harmonies in the breakdown
    unreal bass swing and groove
    al's smashing double kicks and drumming
    2 guitar solos
    that intro and riff


    it has

    every.single.vh. sound.

    Yes. Definitely my answer to this question of the song that exemplifies VH. But I will say, the bookends of HFT (drums, finger tapping intro, Voodoo Queen out) are pretty damn epic. I'm confident putting that intro/outro combination up against any song in the history of music.

    Remember when Dave said Van Halen was Big Rock? This song exemplifies it, and it exemplifies Van Halen.

    Period.

    For me anything off VH1 because it had such a huge impact on music at that time. Put a gun to my head and Iíll go with Running With the Devil.

    100% Agree.

    Listen to Ipswich 1978 and imagine being Black Sabbath having to follow that. That 4:30 of musical terror is the epitome of Van Halen. Absolutely showcases all 4 of them and they obliterate the stage.

    .....Testing....1....2.....3....

    yes HFT is the one and has it all. Feels like the definitive VH song has to be somewhat popular, have all the VH ingredients, musicianship, kick ass vibe, backing vox, fun, dave breakdown and humor, etc.. --- even though it's a sorta oddly arranged song w super long intro and the verses (or pre-verse?) are sorta these mellow talking segments...

    others I think well represent overall VH vibe:

    - Panama (overplayed, but undeniable VH)
    - Hear About It Later
    - Simple Rhyme
    - Bottom's Up (maybe?)
    - LUTS (one of my #1 faves, although might be a little too aggressive?! missing the fun VH element)
    - ATBL (although the super simple solo sorta doesn't do EVH justice)... so i'd prob leave off the list.
    - ITO probably qualifies

    It's a discordant mess. Sums up the last twenty years pretty nicely.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    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!

    HFT is my choice. It shows the band's sense of humor. It's clever. It's about a taboo subject. It really show cases the VH brothers musical talents. And then there is the video
