    Big Bad Bill

    Side note: surprisingly difficult song
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Songs like YRGM, WHATGTG, DITS, PW and even YNG were rock songs that answer the question: what if Van Halen added their unique sound to this song?

    Same with the old timey songs BBB and Happy Trails -- they maintained the genre but added their sound.

    Ice Cream Man is the only one to me, that is not just VH playing it, but completely re-arranging it into another genre that fits them better. It's their most original cover and gets my vote for my favorite too.

    Good arguments for all of them, but when you take that Motown sound and Van Halenize it?! Oh yes.

    You're No Good

    Followed by WHATGTG and BBB.

    PW & DITS are easily the worst.

    If they had done a studio version of Summertime Blues that wouldve been their best.

    Big Bad Bill.

    It's so unexpected. And VH does a great job with a deceptively difficult tune.

    Can't believe OPW is so disliked. Eddie makes that riff sound so awesome, Dave's vocals fit it so perfectly, Mikey's background vocals are at their best, and Alex's unique sound comes through so well on it. Not to mention that beautiful sounding intro right at the very beginning before the riff (not "Intruder").

    And you wonder why it was a hit. Nuts, I tell ya.
