  1. Lee Andrew

  2. DEFKONSIXTYSIX

    you cant choose a favorite from this band
    there's simply too much transcendent history here

  3. GLG 20

    This only works with normal women.

  4. Robert Ghanem

    NASTY BADASS ROCK& ROLL!!!!!

  5. Norman

    Them and Pantera were so much alike. Two brothers and two wild front men with two solid bassists. And neither one invented their genres but they both took it to the next level

  6. KvK Coils

    Ahh, yeah

  7. Draco Vitae

    Ed’s rhythm play is Faustian.

  8. Vetter Burns

    Saw the Diver Down Tour in H-Town at The Summit! WooHoo!

  9. Sean C

    One of the first dates I ever went on was with this woman who, while very pretty, was also quite materialistic, and also critical of what others were wearing. At one point during the date, certain lyrics from this song suddenly popped in my head: "Looks just like an angel/But the angel's talking trash/You make conversation/But she's listening to your cash". To this day I think of her whenever I play this album and track.

  10. Michael Quintana

    Eddies crap attitude against Dave. The vh brothers bonded Dave didnt have a chance.

  11. Best Ever Epic Millennial

    I always skipped this one on the album - sorry

  12. John Doe

    What is the best part of a man? His dick?

  13. Robert Walling

    I always thought it was "You come to my door it won't let you past" :)

  14. Gary Leveroni

    Dave rules

  15. Eric Bolt

    The beginning of the end for this awesome band.

  16. Glen Munro

    Roth’s Van Halen is so Fuckiing Incredible! They were the best part of Rock in the late 70’s and 80’s!

  20. JOHN JACKSON

    Awesome

    one of my favorites from the mighty van halen

  23. Eddie5150 Reischl

    Eddie and Billy Gibbons are the two best  boogie rock guitar players ever.

  24. Redbug 3

    This song is on the Top Ten Best Van Halen songs!

  25. Chris Hamilton

    This goes out to all the beautiful women, on the sidelines of Michigan Stadium!!!! You all know "Bo"!!! Hopefully, not to say, Hallie, Sallie, or yours truly,...NBC!!!!

    rj zander

    Dude shut the hell up what are you talkin about stupid broads for

  26. Darren Plateroti

    Summer break music at its best

  27. Rob Howard

    I bought this cassette in 1983 and wore it out within 2 months and kept buying others. This is to me is what it's all about they sold their soul for rock n roll and all I can do is be grateful they did

  28. double jake.

    Got to love it, Dave was great and so was Sammy. Couldn’t put a leash on Dave, he and his ego had to go do their own thing, wore this album out in the summer of 1985, miss those days no worries. Free Pam Smart

  29. Amy Freeman

    That bad little woman was a doberman named Lolita or Lola for short. Growled at me once.

  30. Simone Bertolina

  38. Justin McNeal

    Low down!!

  39. Portrait of Sorrow

    All Dave All Night, Dave TV! Absolutely one of the greatest front men of all time. My opinion, The Best!

    TheTheratfarmer

  46. Don Rogers

  47. Greg Devito

    Yeah my theme song in the 80s . Lol

    J Wil

    Mine too! Had the '72 Beetle to go with it :).

  48. Brian Olson

    Three cover songs on the album. They did justice on each song.

  49. Ethereal Catholic

    This was a good record yet simultaneously we could tell something was about to change.
    It was the first LP that wasn't full on balls to the wall Heavy Metal.

  50. Keith Leeuwen

    MAGNIFICO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  51. Lane Quenemoen

    My favorite song off this album.

  52. Bob Abooey

  53. Bob Abooey

    Doobies everyone....Doobies

  54. bwdrums1

    God, I love the Dave era VH, easily my favorite band of all time. Diver Down sometimes gets slagged by critics (and Ed himself) but I fucking love it, period !

    rj zander

    The mighty Van Halen is the best American band ever

    Ray Luna

    Hands down Brother

    Paul Mc C

    Amen brother. VH with Dave & MA were sensational.

    Ziggyzag Zi

    All DLR Albums are Masterpieces, Ed may not remember...

  55. Michael Maier

    I need a woman to bite my ass.

  56. T Moody

    King Edward = pure fire and this song is a fine example to just what I am talking about.

  57. Richard Comtois

    let me tell you folks what a wonderfulllll band THANKS YOU VERY MUCH VAN HALEN

  58. Greg Dolecki

    One of their best tunes. The guitar solo is face melting and the lead-in to the harmonica solo - that's music.

    Kris Scanlon

    Tight as a duck's ass this group was at this point. That's the key missing from Van Hagar they lost the R&B and just decided to work on the pop rock side. Everybody knows tension makes great music

    MegaCrowdaddy

    @Kris Scanlon Well said. When I heard that Sammy was teaming up with Van Halen, I thought it was going to be the freaking greatest thing ever, because I loved VH, and I loved Sammy's solo work, and I couldn't wait...5150 was a good album, it was just not as good as I built it up in my mind...and that's why. There was no grit from either the VH side or Sammy's solo work, and I was massively disappointed. The sum of the parts just didn't add up. You summed it up great.

    rj zander

    @Kris Scanlon the comment I just found out Dave did the intro acoustic and he blew the harmonica

  59. Brandon

    Best one off the album, and one of their most underrated (in my opinion, of course).

  60. sniff rat

    anyone know who played harmonica on this?

    Mi Song

    DLR also played acoustic guitar on the intro

  61. Oingo Boingo

    Sammy fan fucking LOVING this shit!!!!!Too bad his tour brings shitty vocals...STUDIO DAVE IS THE SHIT!!!!!!!!

  62. Trollsif Stalin

    Always thought Roth was under-appreciated as a vocalist.

    J Wil

    I always believed, even more so today, that Diamond Dave was the greatest front man EVER. No, I didn't say greatest voice ever. I really liked his voice too, but out front of Ed, Al and Mike...stellar. Jagger is a close second.

    michael page

    He had his moments. Pretty limited voice but it worked well with VH.

    49russman

    In the early years, absolutely. Then he glammed out and became a cheesy Las Vegas twinkie. Bad move.

    Kit Walker

    IMHO his voice made a real point of difference between VH and the other incomparable shrill hair bands vainly following in early 80's...Dave's definitive tough, macho tones kept the power plus theatrics anchored.

  63. Freezknotable/Metal Bunny Records

    Now playing on Freezknotable: SNL in LV with RTY (Saturday Night Live in Las Vegas with Ryan T. Young on KKLZ) Spotlight on "Diver Down" Van Halen (1982) "The Full Bug".

  64. Awesome Audios

    Best part of a man?

    Now what would that be?

    muuwahahahaaaaaa.........

    Trollsif Stalin

    @Awesome Audios His wallet.

    Jeff Rothenberger

    +Trollsif Stalin You got that right bother comrade

  65. r-k-o six

    All of Van Halen's covers are better than the originals, and all of Van Halen's originals are better than their covers.

    slugtoe

    When I saw them on this tour an ex-girlfriend also went and she said...I hope they do Dancing In The Street. I looked at her and shook my head.

    Shawn Loeffler

    still better than Mick Jagger and David Bowie's version

    Anthony Hauser

    r-k-o six six in one half dozen in the other

    michael page

    r-k-o six I'll take the kinks version of you really got me any day of the week.

    Manish Verma

    Well said!

  66. Paul McCafferty

    Who gives a fuck, they were fantastic all the time for me, every album. They had to finish, because they were too clever for there own good, jesus, listen to this, it's scary.

    Mark The Dog Simmons

    cant beat it

  67. jameshope1199

    hagar can't compare

    Mi Song

    +ThinBeagle wrong -- he doesn't sound anything like he did even 20 years ago. no one does.

    Michael Maier

    BS. Heard him live w/ Chickenfoot and he KILLED IT.

    Flamestar320 power to the people

    I personally don't like when people say that Sammy Hagar doesn't compare with Dave, or when it's the other way around. Both have very different singing voices. One being uncomparable to the other in cases like these goes without saying.

    John Davis

    Sammy Hagar had more talent than Diamond Dave by a country mile; he could sing better but also he could make the guitar talk. For a long time I thought Roth was better but that was just because that was who was with them at the start when my impression of VH was first being formed. I still like both singers, but I saw Sammy solo and he put on a hell of a show, even strutting on a catwalk above the crowd singing and strumming with a broken freaking ankle still in the cast!

    Redbug 3

    Not at all. Hagar's band was called Van Hagar.

  68. JIMJAMSC

    I saw in a vid where Ed said straight up this was Dave and Teds album. Whats odd to me is that on one of their greatest hits albums they have most of the songs Ed hated. Dancing ...Streets, On top of the world which he said was the worst song he said he ever wrote. A few other hated songs which makes me wonder if they had any say as to what went on those hits albums. Or Ed did not want to do them even as money hungry as he is and was legally bound to so he tried to sabatage them. But who cares. I want to know why the hell Ed does not do guitar lessons or sit downs and just talk shop and show some of his style. He does in some ads but like usual he is getting paid. I know if you try to sell any guitar with stripes he has a army of lawyers ready to close the auction. I know this.

    jeff heyne

    I'm confused? Are you a fan, or cynical critic, pretty sure he made little to nothing on Michael Jackson's Thriller. If your gonna attack Ed(who has plenty of problems mixed with just a dash of "musical know how") be prepared for a defence, I LOVE HIM! Jimi Page & Hendrix can state their case for "world's greatest guitarist" Don't forget some pretty descent piano/synthesizer & even bass on Sammy's solo album in between V.H. tours & albums. Have a great day, sir & GOD BLESS!

    JIMJAMSC

    I am a confused fan and critic. I have been listening to EVH since 77 and have about 10 EVH guitars from Frankensteins,5150 Kramer copies to Ernie ball Music Mans from the early 90s,Peaveys and Wolfgangs from every year. Amps, a pair of striped tennis shoes and various striped gear. So yeah guess you could say I am a fan. I was 15 in 77 and played in a little band covering Aerosmith,Nugent,etc when VH1 dropped. I heard Eruption and quit guitar for a month. Huge influence musically. I just wished Ed was more open and accessible during his career.Imo after VH hit it big and Dave left, Ed threading water for the last 30 years. Its easy to tell Ed hates public appearances and has to be dragged even to major events promoting his products. But on stage in front of 20 grand he is right at home. Its just that I see Vai,Satriani,Frank Marino,Nugent,Schon,Dimartini etc on YT giving talks,demos,lessons I wished Ed was more sociable. About the only times I see him is when his is promoting the same tired
    Wolfgang shape or throwing stripes on anything they put in front of him. Yes I am guilty for buying it but it has ran its course with me. I am tired of  the sos. Glad we still have him and he is still very sharp. Same love/hate with Roth. Love the guy and find him a amazingly unique personality and musician. that said if I were to get stuck on a elevator with him I would probably try to strangle him after a hour.

    Corncob Jenkins

    @JIMJAMSC You got pictures of Wolfie with his shirt off too? you sound like a stalker...

  69. MrMegaFredZeppelin

    KICK ASS tune from this album. ROCK ON!!!!!

  70. Maxharddrive64

    I always wondered who played the harmonica on this...Steven Tyler? Lmao

    animaldays2

    Dianmond Dave himself

    Shawn Loeffler

    Roth also plays the acoustic intro

  71. Nick N

    The only good song on this album.

    Zachary Blatt

    Hang em high is a great song off this album too

    Flamestar320 power to the people

    "Big Bad Bill" is my favorite of the songs on the album. Not to say the other tracks aren't enjoyable though. (But their "Dancing In The Street" cover is pretty mediocre.)

    Saxxon

    Little Guitars is good too.

    Nick Foles Super Bowl 52 MVP
