    Default Van Halen's most underrated song

    What is Van Halen's most underrated song?

    For me it's a no-brainer.

    Romeo Delight

    This song kicks ass.

    How in the world it's never made either of the two greatest hits albums is beyond me.

    Light Up the Sky!

    I like Drop Dead Legs and Summer Nights better, but it seems to me Light Up the Sky gets less credit! Rocking tune!

    Light Up The Sky!!!

    This is a blistering tune - and when it breaks down in the middle ("ooh, mama see the firelights") it just blows me away. Great little guitar fills going on there... To me, this song epitomizes everything that was great about Classic Van Halen.

    In A Simple Rhyme-hands down the most overlooked song in the entire VH catalog. Closest thing to a ballad CVH did. As for a Sammy song, I would have to go with Summer Nights or Seventh Seal.

    Oops, you're in the wrong thread. All Van Halen 3 references belong in the "Van Halen's Worst Two Songs" thread.

    As for REAL Van Halen, I'll go with:

    Dave Era: Secrets
    Sammy Era: Deja Vu
    .
    .
    .
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Happy Trails.

    Barber shop VH doesn't get enough props. I miss the old radio IDs they used to do in four part harmony.

    It's not the best music I've ever heard; but it's sure as fuck the best porno music I've ever heard!

    WACF in general is severely underrated by most fans. Whiskey, Romeo, Fools, CTBM. Simple Rhyme for sure.

    Push Comes to Shove, naturally.

    Sucker in a 3 Piece, Aftershock come to mind.
