Awesome guitar solo and great song!

82 Light Up the Sky Light Up the Sky

It's a great song and love how the next song seems to follow up and perform perfectly. Highly underrated

I am a massive Van Halen fan. I love both the DLR and Hagar eras (that third one never happened :p), but I noticed this song wasnt on the list and I really think its in their top 20 tunes as well as being hands down the most underrated one, trust me go listen to it

92 The Seventh Seal The Seventh Seal

In my opinion, this song is the crown Jewel of the Sammy Hagar era, and it VASTLY outshines Can't Stop Loving You and Don't Tell Me (What Love Can Do). While those are both fine songs in their own right, I don't understand why they're often rated higher than The Seventh Seal. The riff in this track is absolutely superb, one of the best Van Halen has ever done. I could listen to Eddie's guitar on this song alone for hours and not get tired of it. Sammy's vocals are top-notch, with the "Mother earth's soul" and "Found my mother lode" lines being some of my favorite singing performances he's ever done. Mikey's bass is great, it adds a deeper sounding undertone to the whole song that really helps it shine in the long run. And of course, Alex's percussions are very on-point as usual, his drumming and cymbals sounding very clear and crisp to me. The lyrics allude heavily to the Bible passages of revelation and haunting apocalyptic visions, which is territory I never ...more

93 The Dream is Over The Dream is Over
94 Dirty Water Dog Dirty Water Dog
95 Hang 'em High Hang 'em High
96 Crossing Over Crossing Over
97 A Year to the Day A Year to the Day
98 Once Once

Beautiful song. It has emotion throughout it. Best song on III (Without You at a close second) and at least top 50 material.

99 China Town China Town
100 Outta Love Again Outta Love Again

I LOVE this song. It should really be higher up...
