    Default VH's Best Album Title

    What is VH's best album title?

    Van Halen? .....pretty good first album title...can't really go wrong with that.

    Van Halen II ?....makes sense...since it's their 2nd album...but really not very original....

    Fair Warning gets my vote.

    Although, I must reluctantly admit OU812 is a very clever & catchy title.

    What's your pick???

    How many votes will 3 get? Haha.

    Iíll back you up on Fair Warning, like they were telling the upncomers ďweíre the motherfuckers you canít compete with!Ē. Eddie left it on the court with this one.... a masterpiece from the first to the last note.

    Got to go with Women and Children First. Honorable mention to FUCK. Come on people, they got away with naming an album FUCK based on the acronym and got little to no blow back. I don’t care who the singer was that was clever.

    Yeah- that For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge title was indeed fairly clever & original + the abbreviation made a good rock & roll slogan I guess but they should've added texture to the album cover to make it feel like a football. That would've been ideal. The promo item was a blow up doll. Very sleazy. Haha.

    Ideally- this thread would be better with on of those voting polls but I don't know how to do it & too late now oh well.

    Diver Down

    That and the album cover are great - in a head-scratching kind of way. Fair Warning a close second.

    they have a bunch of cool album names IMHO. If I had to pick one it would either be WACF or 5150. WACF is a cool line in itself, double that with the fact that it's a line in a neat little acoustic song on the album it's just awesome. 5150 because what they were trying to do was insane

    Women and Children First

    And FUCK is stupid to me, and it isn't even accurate, it's just made up.
    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!

    Yeah, I thought it was cool at the time that they named the album FUCK, but, you're right, it isn't accurate and kind of weird that they went with those words.

    For best album title it's gotta be either WACF or Fair Warning. I give the edge to FW.

    I was planning to write the same thing. Pulling the title from the acoustic song gives it an edge to me. It's also a great phrase for a band like VH

    Also a mention for Diver Down as it was well thought out (look up Dave's explanation) -- just isn't as cool a name on it's own.

    Good thread. I think only Dave's last (1984) and Sam's first (5150) had title tracks. Another good thread could be to pick the best song on each album as a replacement title track.

    Close between WACF and FW...slight nod to Fair Warning.
