    Hey Brett,

    Remember a while ago when I mentioned that Niacin called it Mean Streets? Well I was just checking out My No Hold Bar B Que (which I think has some real good moments) and in the credits Dave calls it Mean Streets also... WTF???

    It shouldn't surprise anyone that Roth doesn't know the lyrics to his song. I'm sure you have seen his show.

    Half the people on this board refer to it as "Mean Streets" as well. Check out some of the "favorite song" profiles. If it's your favorite all time VH tune at least spell it correctly.

    Dave couldn't remember the lyrics to most of the songs what makes you think he's gonna remember the right name of the song.

    "This is" (Mean Street) implies singular, other wise it would be "These are"

    Romeo's Delight is a much better song than Mean Streets.

    LMAO Yeah, it's almost as good as Running With The Devil and Show Your Love. But it sure beats the hell out of Love Comes Walking In.
    As my ol' grandpappy used to say, "Don't ever tell anybody I told you this, ya little fucker."

    I've commented many times when over-opinionated arrogant people on here attack everyone with their knowledge of Van Halen, yet continue to put their favorite song in their profile as "Mean Streets." I love irony.

    That's pretty funny. Anyway, when I first bought Fair Warning and WACF, back in '88 or so, they were on one cassette labled "Two hit albums on one cassette" or something like that. It was an official thing from War. Bro's., not some bootleg, and they listed the song In a Simple Rhyme as (I swear this is the truth) "In Simple Rhyme." Ok, so it's only one word, but still, if the freakin' record company can't even get the names of the songs right, it's a little understandable that some fans get it wrong.
