5150 20th Anniversary

Postby UsagiAndMamoru » Fri Mar 31, 2006 11:14 pm

It's kinda late to be doing this, but March 24th marked the 20th anniversary of Van Halen's legendary multi-platinum album "5150". This was the band's first album to reach #1 on the Billboard charts, and it spawned a ton of classics like "Why Can't This Be Love", "Dreams", "Love Walks In", and "Best Of Both Worlds". The album eventually sold 6 million copies. It's my #3 favorite album of all time. I think something should be done for it's 20th Anniversary. I'm thinking the original album with bonus un-released tracks, PLUS a whole bonus CD with demos, outtakes and live tracks, AND a DVD featuring the album in surround sound, the music videos for "Dreams", "5150" and "Best Of Both Worlds", plus "The Legacy Of 5150" documentary, featuring interviews with Sammy, Eddie, Alex and Mike, plus Don Landee, Mick Jones, and a few other people. BTW:The Legacy Of 5150 isn't a real documentary, it's just a name I thought up for if a documentary for the album were to ever be made. Anyway, I love 5150 so much. I got it on vinyl, cassette and CD. I'm planning to buy ALL of the 7"/45 RPM singles off the album when I get my next paycheck to show my devotion.

Has it been 20 years since I was drinking beers with my buds and rocking out to this great album?!?! Holy crap!

What are the guys from Van Halen up to anywho?

Except for the tune Jump, I was disinterested in Van Halen until 5150, had considered them little more than big hair schlock. Roth was a clown----Eddie was a master fretsman, no doubt, yet with lousy material. Jump was apparently the shadow of good things to come, not to mention the dumping Roth.

5150 really turned my ear though, great songwriting and great everything else. I agree Usoggy, it deserves a special re-release package. 8)
