Album: Van Halen IIReleased: 1979Charted:
This was the second single from the album, after "Dance The Night Away." Their singles did not sell well, but their albums did. Many people bought the first Van Halen album after hearing this one.
The group wrote this in David Lee Roth's basement. They had just finished a tour and were under tight deadline pressure to record their second album. They released an album every year until 1984.
Roth fractured his foot doing a jump for the album's photo shoot. Since there was no way Roth could stay still on stage, they postponed their tour so he could heal.
The album took 6 days to record. Van Halen was quick in the studio because they laid down most of the tracks live, with very little overdubbing.
