Dad Tunes: Van Halen

Dad Tunes: Van Halen

Everyone knows Van Halen: the finger-tapping, spandex-wearing, high-kicking glam metal band from the 80s that took the world by storm with some of the biggest hits in rock history. On this episode, we hope to share a few tracks that you may have overlooked if you tuned in to Halen for just the songs you heard on the radio (or saw on MTV for that matter). We also ask the age-old question of whether Van Halen truly is a metal band, and discuss the time we saw them in 2008 where we ultimately conclude that you really don't have to wear the spandex anymore David.
