Album: Van Halen IIReleased: 1979Charted:
The lightest and most radio-friendly song on the album, Warner Brothers Records insisted it be released as the first single. The band felt it did not represent their sound and did not want it released first, but they did not have the clout to overrule their record company.
The original title was "Dance, Lolita, Dance."
Van Halen gained a lot of fans after this was released and got some airplay. Many people not aware of the group also bought their first album after hearing this.
Van Halen's tour for this album was the first that they headlined. It was delayed when David Lee Roth hurt his foot performing a jump at the photo shoot for the album.
