    DDL, my favorite non-single from the 6-pack in general. Still can't believe it wasn't played on tour, but that made it even more special in '15.

    Hard to choose, I love them all, but I landed on Drop Dead Legs. That groove, that bendy slidey riff, the outro, the lyrics, it’s all pure Van Halen at their peak.

    agree
    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and Ive got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    I will go with Top Jimmy. I have always loved this tune.

    I wish we had the opportunity to hear it live.

    At least DDL made the set in 2015.

    "Drop Dead Legs." Aside from "1984" I love them all, but that outro to DDL is one of the greatest things Eddie has ever played.

    I get the EXACT same impression when listening to GGB.

    Drop Dead Legs, but real close with GGB. The background vocals on ggb are classic Mike and Ed

    DDL, simply because when the riff hits at 0:16, it hits like a ton of bricks.

    Also...cowbell.


    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    The intro sounds wicked with the stereo panning via the Ripley guitar, and the verse riffs are not 'normal' and sound a bit chaotic, yet Eddie makes it work musically.
