    My Fav... Diver Down

    Great graphic IDEA with the diving flag tie in, and inner band turmoil sub-meaning
    and
    Great back cover photo as well

    I'm pretty sure in one of Eddie's old Guitar World interviews, he said that 1984 was Valerie's idea.

    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.
    This is a great thread.

    It’s hard to divorce the title from how much you like the music on it. As I said in another thread I wonder how FUCK would be perceived had it been used instead of VHII. I suspect many here would be saying “classic Roth”. But, we will never know.

    Factoring in the music that switches my favorite to Fair Warning. Title alone, always liked WACF...

    Actually, it is fairly accurate. There are numerous old language variants that gave rise to what we know as "fuck". But, the derivation Sam referenced was used as a charge for rape in Ireland when one was charged "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". So, while not THE source of the term, it is A source.

    1) WACF
    2) FUCK - clever
    3) 1984 - coz they were able to claim that year

    I don't know how anyone could say Diver Down - it has nothing to do with any of the songs or with the music.

    How FUCK is thought to be a clever album title by a lot of people baffles me.

    For me, it is Beavis and Butthead material.

    "Huh huh, let's call our album FUCK."

    "Yeah, yeah...that's cool. We rock."

    "Huh, huh, yeah, we can make up an acronym for it."

    "Cool."
    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!
