    They played 'Poundcake' on the show.. but they also played a warm-up tune BEFORE the broadcast.

    Anyone know which song?

    i'm guessing top of the world. shouldn't this go to VH 101? either way, if they were playing an awards show, if they won, they'd be happy, and feeling on top of the world, thus, i give you my guess. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I don't know what they warmed up with, but I do remember Arsenio Hall introducing them as the "greatest American rock and roll band ever"!

    Yeah, baby. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    Van Halen open the awards show as they perform "Poundcake." The band played "Best of Both Worlds" prior to that, which was not televised. The band was also interviewed later in the show.

    Yeah I remember that, MTV actually played some decent tunes back then. When Arsenio was introducing the band you could hear Ed's drill go off and it was just frigin awesome. No to mention the boys being interviewed after their performance and expousing something like "they were their own opening act" and having a chuckle about it. In 1992 when VH won for video of the year wasn't Ed a little pissed off at the end of the show. I think it had something to do with Sam bad mouthing Howard Stern or something.

    I thought that they played "Runaround" before the show went live on TV.

    I have read that many times before.

    I think that MTV is wrong, they are probably living in 1986 or something. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    But as usual I am probably wrong [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
