    Just saw a trailer of "Charlie's Angels". It had a cheap sounding knock off of "You Really Got Me" also? VH's version is my favorite.

    It sounds like it's part of the big picture . . . to push CLASSIC VAN HALEN into the public eye/ear as much as possible before the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!
    I've never heard so much classic VH on the radio than I have over the last 2-3 months.

    Coincidence?

    When you mention You Really Got Me, everyone almost always thinks of VH, and it was originally a Kinks tune. I remember hearing that Ray Davies said in concert, "We're going to play a Van Halen song now," acknowledging the fact that VH actually had a bigger hit with the tune than they did.

    I like the original, but man the VH version just turbo-charged that mother and make it 1000 times better.

    Yes, VH took YOU REALLY GOT ME to a whole new playing field. I'd love to see VH do a new commercial to promote the reunion and "SOMEBODY GET ME A DOCTOR" would be a perfect fit with a Jack Daniel's commercial. Show kids in bars having a great time drinking Jack and listening to VH. That would be great business for Jack Daniels and Van Halen. Something they should consider.Peace out.

    For some reason, I really doubt we'll see a Jack Daniels commercial. At least not in the U.S., anyway...

    I heard someone doing YRGM in a commercial for a movie I think. Sound familiar anyone?

    You never know MikeL. I never thought Dave would be back in the band after what happened in 1996. Strange things can happen in Van Halen land!Peace out.

    Hard liquor ads have been off of US airwaves for quite a while. There's a longstanding agreement between the government and the distillers that the later won't advertise on television. Seegram's put a few ads on a couple of years ago, but got enough flak for it that they dropped them.

    yeah, bubba i was listening to the radio and i was like, "hey, cool mellencamp tune" and then that dumb bitch came on and i almost axed my radio.
    vh did a way better version of YRGM, but i still like listening to the kinks version when i hear it on the radio.
