Van Halen 2012

Normally when a band gets back together for a tour this is big exciting news for me. I'm not a huge Van Halen fan but can totally rock out to some classic 80's VH. And if you say you don't...you're a liar.

Well I feel like I can sum up the new Van Halen tour with two examples:
Here's the new VH song called "Tattoo" if you listen for about 20 seconds you will realize how crappy of a song this is. Not to mention the lyrics are horrible. "I've got Elvis on my elbows"...pure poetry.

I seriously feel like this is the worst song I've heard of 2012 so far. It's like hearing Rebecca Black's "Friday" all over again.

Second example is this live performance, and this outfit David Lee Roth is wearing:

Overalls, a cap and a scarf. A pretty stark contrast to the outfits of Dave's past.

I'm well aware the spandex just doesn't work anymore in this day and age. But this outfit is pretty freaking horrible. If I were more clever, I'd have a hilarious description for this outfit. 

The verdict so far hasn't been so hot on the new Val Halen tour. Just those two simple reasons has deterred me from any interest in seeing this guys. I know things can't always be the same, but I feel like these guys could have done better...at least on the music part. I can respect a band who releases solid music. And Van Halen used to.
