    What're your three favorite songs Van Halen covered in their club days or during tours?

    These are mine (this week)

    1 Rock and Roll - Led Zeppelin
    2 Last Child - Aerosmith
    3 Tush - ZZ Top

    When I listen to a lot of VH covers and then to the original, I think Van Halen did a better job with most of them then the original artists (with exceptions of course )

    1. Summertime Blues- Whenever they played this live with Dave it was always amazing. Rush's version on R30 is surprisingly and puzzlingly flat and SLOW.
    2. Where Have All The Good Times Gone- The live versions on the DD tour were vastly superior to the album version, particularly Al's drumming.
    3. You're No Good- Always loved the back and forth interplay of Dave's screeching and Ed's guitar. Also a great bass intro by Mike.

    To say you like it is one thing, to say it's a top 3 cover makes no sense to me.

    I'd have to go with (in no particular order)...

    Won't Get Fooled Again
    You're No Good
    Dancing In The Street
    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."
    - graeme on the addiction to this place.

    "something tells me that after the nuclear holocaust, there'll be twinkies, cockroaches, and a dave vs. sammy argument going on somewhere".
    - han valen, 6.11.04

    "in my best "saw" scary movie voice: "oh, yes, there will be beagles."
    - hatchetforce, 6.7.06
