    What is the meaning behind the song "Panama" anyway? Do they really discuss the actual country? I need to know so I have an excuse to play it in my Spanish class.

    Thanks for any help.

    I thought that Dave said he wrote it about a car...

    He said something about how he was always accused of writing about cars and he never really had...so this was his way...

    He named the car Panama....

    Pistons poppin' aint no stoppin now...

    Thanks !!

    Yep it's about a car, but I am going to move this to "Van Halen 101" for more thoughts.
