This song really rocks out! Combining Dave's Vocals and Eddie's kickass guitar technique we got one word... Panama
doesn't have the best riff or solo, but it's just incredible to listen to and sing along to.

one of the songs that got me into metal. m/ - wolphert
I've had a few hot teachers over the years - Ajkloth
The boyish naivity of lines like " I think of all the education that I missed, but yet my homework was never quite like this" just prove what van halen is all about, kickass guitars, charismatic vocals, unbelievably underrated harmonies, crazy drums, and all in the name of having a good time.V 17 Comments
By far there best song I don't know why it's so low on the list
Such a cathy song should be in the top 5 at least Best Van Helen
Great bass, great intro, perfect song. My favourite song from Van Halen. No doubt about it. EDDIE Van Halen IS GOD!
First album and first somg, still my favorite - Joshgbpack12V 10 Comments
This is easily my favorite Van Halen song, great lyrics, perfect guitar, well done
yeah the greatest intro of all time - richie4life
This should be their BEST song, the solo is the best one Eddie Van Halen has.
That intro still gives me goosebumps till today. Definitely deserves to be a LOT higher.V 15 Comments
This song really shows what Eddie Van Halen is capable of doing... This guitar solo is pure magic - fidelcanojr
The best solo ever by the best guitarist ever.
The best guitar solo
Best guitar solo to start a song ever in the history of rock. Eddie Van Halen--enough said.V 14 Comments
My favourite song of all time. This feels less like a piece of pop-metal and more like Sammy Hagar trying to convert an audience of Roth purists to the Hagar side. And with inspiring lyrics like these and an amazing energy that pulsates from every chord, he makes a brilliant case.
Has everything: screaming innovative Eddie signature guitar work, gorgeous melody, killer Mike bass, excellent synthesizer, superb Sammy singing, profound meaningful lyrics which are extremely upbeat to the point of being spiritual and inspiring without being overly religious or dogmatic or pretentious, great hook with 'higher and higher'
This is a beautiful song. And I think that sammy hagar is better vocalist than David lee roth. Dreams is more like a ballad than jump that is more like pop
This and Love Walks In are the best can Halen songs no question - CalebMusicV 22 Comments
Wow I'm not the only one. I mean I used to listen to Panama and Jump and to me they were just good songs but this one was the one that really got me in Van Halen and made love many others of their songs
The one that got me into Van Hale. This song is just epic.. The vocals are great and so is the music. I'm happy that this is in the top 10. For me, should be in the top 5.
I love that noise that is in the intro and chorus it is awesome! And a great peice of music great lyrics
By far their best songV 7 Comments
Jump will always win a popularity contest, and it IS a great pop song. But its not what VH are all about - raw, energetic and THAT guitar. Unchained is the perfect example.
Love the opening on this song. One of my true all time favorites. Never overplayed.
My favorite Van Halen song. Starts off with absolutely ripping guitar and DLR is at his finest on vocals and lyrics.
Great Riff, best of the album, this band does not get credit, and gets branded as a pop band. This song ain't pop.V 10 Comments
Beautiful song that makes you think about all that happens while we are busy doing something else... Not their best from the musical perspective but sure shows their talent with lyrics.
One of the best! Video is meaningful.
Just amazing! No words right now..
This song is the third best Van Halen song it is awesome - CalebMusicV 8 Comments
How is this so low?! Eddie's guitar sounds better that it ever has on this song. It has a different more sophisticated feel to it and its hands down the best song on the best Van Halen album.
There's no way that this should be all the way down here... Such a classy song and extremely catchy
This song came on during school once. It was during the only class I had with the girl I liked. This song reminded me so much of her, and I believe it is their best.
Can't believe Jump is No. 1 currently and Dance the Night Away is No. 11. How is that even possible. This is undoubtedly Top 5.V 6 Comments
Private parts howard stern turning point of the movie what song do they play? This one baby. Why? Cause the riff hits you hard and roth kills it
Great rift, awesome how it starts right after Eruption. Fantastic album!
Amazing, I love so much this song
Original, unique and rocking!V 1 Comment
People who listened to more than three Van Halen songs know the entire Fair Warning album is the best material the band has released so far. "Mean Street" is a song with actual meaning, made to express emotions and not necessarily appeal to the masses.
This is beyond me that any true fan who can really appreciate the best guitar playing of eddie van halen can not realize how "mean Streets" was Eddie at his peak. Mean Streets is the best song of fair warning and fair warning is the least in the top 3 of van halen's best albums so how on earth can it be ranked at 15. Jesus christ Eddie van halen genuis is his guitar playing and jump is his synthesizer. Where are the true fans of van halen.
yeah really great underrated song should be higher - sUx2Bu
Eddie Van halen at his very best, no question.V 8 Comments
I chose this one cause it has a vary good solo and the bass drums and the singer tie it in so well that is speaks to me
Have you seen Junior's Grades?
Hands down best song off of "Women and Children First"
Underrated Van Halen songV 1 Comment
How is this song all the way back here. It should be in the top 5
Highly underrated song
How is this 16
This song is amazing, not their best but easily in the top 5's... The tittle and the synth intro make you think it's going to be a ballad, but after the intro you hear those kickass guitar chords that you can "headbang" to... Then the singing starts and its still heavy, but then the chorus catches you by a surprise since it's so beautiful, emotional and it sounds like a ballad... Such a masterpiece! The guitar solo is also pretty good... Great song! - fidelcanojr
Reminds me the most beautiful moments of my life.
Truly great song better than Jump believe Me.. !
Amazing, great song. Beautiful!V 1 Comment
What the heck is this?! Sure it's not the best but it sure needs to be higher! Really catchy song that really puts you in a positive mood. Van Halen for the win!
This song is energizing and fun. Should be higher.
Awesome song, you should listen to it
One of Van Halen's best ballads
Awesome synth second best Van Halen song - CalebMusic
I love this songV 1 Comment
Another brill song that should be in the top 10 songs
Deserves top ten
This song should be in the top 10 instead of poundcake
Great song that highlights their debut album. A bit underrated, and deserves to be in the top 10, definitely. - The_Acid_Queen
Love ice cream and this song
Simply perfect... Idiots those who don't voto for this song
This is slightly better than jump and Panama. I know all three songs but the intro in this song is the icing on the cake
This is top ten! Way better than Jump!
All the Little Van Halen songs Rock!
Little Guitars and Little Dreamer
This is the song that got me into Van Halen, and rock music in general! A wonderfully dark rocker which showcased the mature side of Van Hagar in the late 90s and put Eddie's intense guitar wizardry center-stage once again.
This Song actually sounds amazing to listen to when you on a Plane!
Also those Guitars in this song unmatchable! - Curti2594
Epic song, from the epic movie "Twister. " It's not as appreciated as it should be because Sammy Hagar sang it and not David Lee Roth.
When I was 5, this was my absolute Van Halen song, and I can.l understand why,V 5 Comments
WHY ISN'T THIS IN THE ' TOP TEN?! GOD! ARE YOU SERIOUSLY STUPID ENOUGH TO PUT THIS MASTERPIECE OF A SONG AT NUMBER 31?!
This song is their second best from the 1984 album. Definitely one of their catchiest songs ever.
It's my favorite song from Van Halen, the rhythm is so catchy and really gets me in a good mood that it's imposible not to sing it. It's just great.
Definitely one of the best songs off "1984"
How is this song so low on the list? Definitely the best.V 4 Comments
What? Why this is so low? Doesn't people notice the awesome guitar work that's going on here?
HOW IS THIS SO LOW? This is THE best Hagar song along with humans being, and is one of the best overall. So motivating. You feel like you actually are standing on top of the world when you hear this song. also this song motivated me to go up and talk to the girl that became my girlfriend...
Its one of the best of Van Halen... I can't believe that is so underrated the melody of the chorus is incredible and the lyrics are full with emotion.
Not only the best Van Halen song, but close to the best song of all time!
I agree 20? This is an insult he sings with emotion and its incredible
I am surprised to see this so low. I think the reason being is its off their balance album which overall isn't very good.V 3 Comments
This is such an amazing song! So underrated
Even though Van Halen is way better than Van Hagar, I am voting for Poundcake. It is my favourite Hagar song and should be higher than it is.
This is the one which made it up to 1 in the billboard rock charts upon its release.Deserves to be in the top 10.
If you listen to the lyrics, the song talks about a woman's derriere, relating it to a dessert cake.
One of my favorites. Including Eruption, House of Pain, Panama, Jump, Top Jimmy, Really Got Me Now, Hot for Teacher, Runnin' with the Devil, Drop Dead Legs, I'll Wait, and Many Others.
Atomic punk is top 3 material.
It's pretty heavy for the 70's
Why is the crazy stuff we never say poetry in ink? - haiderhasan
Is one of the best songs ever created, you can�'t stop listening!
It's the most epic song of 2012 - andreymoutelik
Another song that should be in the top 10 songs
WAY under rated. The best song off their best album.
One of my favorites why isint this in the top 10?
Personally, Feel Your Love Tonight is my #1 song. Those first 15 are incredible.V 1 Comment
This is a very underrated song. It has a great guitar solo and a cool bass-line during the solo. David's singing is pretty great too.
My favorite Van Halen song. Fast drums and a killer Eddie solo.
Song simply hits hard. Lyrics are so raunchy. But they make you think for sure.
Top 5 for sure. Amazing guitar work.V 2 Comments
I don't care if it says the F word, this song should have been on every rock station everywhere!
A slower, deep cut, oozing with melody. I have loved this song since the first time I heard back in the mid 80's. Best of Van Halen for me include this one, Girl Gone Bad, and Jump in no particular order.V 1 Comment
Such a great verse with great harmonical value leading into one of the catchiest VH choruses. Just a good tune
Why is this in 74th place, best Van Halen song ever.
One of my favorites! They played it here in Houston this passed Friday Night Aug25th 2015 and they Killed it! Place went nuts and I was shocked at everyone around me singing it. I didn't think it was that popular and yet everyone is just singing along. Great Live!
Only bested by "Unchained." Who are these people voting?! NOTHING Van Hagar should be in the top 20!
Should be in the top 10 best songs
How many votes has this song gotten? The name of this song.
Really emotional, and really great. - Black_Thunder
This is seriously at least one of the top ten Van Halen songs. It has an incredible intro that leads to a great Van Halen Riff.
Not one, but TWO eddie solo's. The second one has him staggering up to the edge of a cliff and dive bombing off into guitar bliss.
Add that to Dave's twisted lyrics about falling in love with a hooker, and you have everything that a rock song should be about.
