Holy shit, what the fuck is David Lee Roth wearing in that last video?

Nice leotard/girdle/spandex pant things... With suspenders too... I would hate to have those skin tight pants accidentally fall off.

Seriously, is he showing toe in those pants?

P.S. I want those fuzzy leg warmers.

He was and will always be king of the sausage packed spandex - He did however make it work and is right up there as far as front man banging hot ass - Ahhh, the late 70's early 80's

Dude didn't every freaking rock band wear spandex or some kind of makeup back in the 80's? Yeah it was cool back then but not so cool now.

Yeah they did. While their looks may be funny now, their music still rocks, and quite frankly I like 80's hair band music much more than the crap out now-a-days.

Ive really been getting back into hair bands in the last few years. Poison, Skid Row, Warrant, Motley Crue, Def Leopard, Slaughter, Tesla, etc... Great music back then. Now all we have is this crappy angst music with all the screaming and shit. Hey, why don't you guys start playing more than three chords in a song?

While I agree with you on the classicness of hair band rock (what a fun era) I do however share a love for good old 3 chord rock - Hell, punk music rose from such - The Ramones never really played more than (3) chords and I don't think have a song over 4 mins long

I do agree with what is out now a days - Not my cup but hey, my older Bro who is CLASSIC ROCK GUY thought my punk shit sucked to0 - To quote the band in this thread: (Van Halen not Van Hagar - Joe Dirt)

"Ain't it kinda frightening how this younger generation swings, you now its more than just some new sensation"

I type all this while listening to Tiesto so i am all over the fuckin map

Van Halen has always been a strange band. They never really fit into the "Hair/Glam Band" genre, and they were never really a straight Rock & Roll band like Aerosmith, or Zeppelin back in the day.

I think a lot of it had to do with David Lee Roth's influence. David Lee Roth's music has always had a strange "California Twang" sound to it. Yeah they have songs like "Hot for Teacher" and "Runnin' with the Devil" which are great Rock & Roll tunes, but they also have songs like "California Girls" and "Just a Gigalo" on the same album. California Twang...

A lot, if not all, of that "California twang" was lost once Sammy Hagar stepped into the picture. Hagar's hard rock influence really changed Van Halen's sound, and at times I think for the better. I mean, who doesn't like "Poundcake" or "Right Now". Yeah you have to deal with "Cabo Wabo" and songs like that, but their sound definitely turned much more into the rock band that they should have been.

I see your point but as I mentioned earlier (and by no means is anyone right or wrong in this thread, I just like giving T shit) to me, the got soft when they went Hagar and they got main stream - I put up with 5150 but after that - Nah, not so much

I hear ya bro I love all those bands, but ya know what old, new it's all good it's what your feeling at the time, love to listen to rock and get all F! amped up, or classical to blues to chill out. It's what moves your soul that is what makes music all good. Just Van Halen back with DLR brings back good vibes, though Sammy also brings back good vibes to. I can't knock any genre or artist
its all good to me.

Yeah, it does have a bit more of a mainstream feel to it compared to original Van Halen, but when you get the shit music we have now, you almost are begging to hear something like "When its love."
