    The First New Van Halen Song In 14 Years...

    And the first new Van Halen song with David Lee Roth in 24 years, and it is the shittiest song I have ever heard.

    I heard it on WCCC this morning. Not sure what I think about it yet. It might grow on me.

    Oh god,

    I didn't even give the whole thing a listen. I guess I should be disappointed, I don't know why I got my hopes up in the first place.

    Must listen to 'Right Now' to get the bad flavor out of my mouth. That was terrible.

    A buddy of mine said he liked it. I haven't listened yet. Youtube is blocked at work.

    Song is blocked here, but I guess I wouldn't like it either. Back together for the money rarely makes good music.

    I love the Sammy Hagar years, as well as the Diamond Dave years.

    Absolutely. Songs are just completely different to me.

    This actually could've gone a lot worse. I wouldn't regularly listen to it, but it's better then some of the Hagar.

    The lyrics are awful. The groove is decent, Eddies sound is okay thru out some parts, killer on the solo. The solo is very good, when I close my eyes, I see VH during the solo, so that's a plus.

    The lyrics/theme is just doofy and awful.

    doofy and awful also describes David's dancing in the video. I think he might have RLS

    but at least Wolfgang seems to be moving around, which he barely did 5 years ago.

    They're old. Old bands NEVER can relive the same kind of passion, lyrically, that they used to have. Too much perspective lost.

    Reminds me of the tail end DLR solo stuff. His first album (Eat 'em and Smile) was delicious. Everything else sucked and the lyrics seemed to be written by a JHS student in an assisted learning program. I get the same vibe from these lyrics. BLEH.

    It makes me laugh when people who are fans of band like Van Halen say that our generations music is shit. Do they even have ears?
