    Just like blues wasn't VH forte, the same can be said about LZ-like stuff. On Fire all the way. That said, wasn't Sammy better at singing LZ than Dave? Yeah, I know that this thread is going in a direction that quite a few threads have gone over the years but whatever... Sam can/or could/ really come close to "classic" Plant.

    From Montrose


    Through Chickenfoot like 40 years later:

    2:48 mark - this short scream is very Plant'ish
    "If you ever speak to me like that again, you better be wearing a cup" - EVH, 1996

    "Stupid neighbors called the cops/Now the party's over/Angry housewife wants my name/Tell her it's 'Ben Dover"

    Sammy Hagar made Van Halen even better. Deal with it.

    I love that tune since day 01! That intro is A-mazing!!! And it is just the open wings to what comes after it!!!

    Just like you, I think In a Simple Thyme has it all, the complete package.

    either song is a worthy choice, but still it's a bummer that there are some Van Halen fans that don't find "In A Simple Rhyme" to be as awesome as I do. It truly is a showcase for all elements of Van Halen.

    Agreed. I could have easily voted for In A Simple Rhyme, and it would have defeated On Fire 12-11. Oh well, my bad.

    True. How is the OP's vote not the first of the thread?
