So the other week, on the occasion of a Listomania about bad cover versions, somebody nominated a Van Halen version (with Sammy Hagar) of The Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again."
And I, perhaps predictably, responded by saying something to the effect that hell, that's too scary for me to even contemplate, let alone try to find.
In any event, strictly out of morbid curiosity, I did finally try to find it, and here it is.
And I gotta say -- Hagar's obnoxiousness notwithstanding, this is pretty damned impressive, particularly Eddie's transposing the synth intro from the original onto guitar. I'm still not a fan of these guys, but damn -- that's a lot of music for only three instruments.
Make sure you listen to it under the headphones, BTW. The video quality is piss poor, but the audio is great.
