Of course I’m talking about me. She’s awesome.

6-year-old Avery Molek performs Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher”

Wow. Just wow. Check out some of his other videos to see that he’s not some one-trick pony, especially this performance of Metallica’s “Through the Never” which proves he could very easily replace Lars.

Happy Birthday, Edward Van Halen!

Van Halen - “Tattoo”

Here’s the video for “Tattoo,” the fist single from the upcoming Van Halen album A Different Kind of Truth, the first full release from the VH brothers in 13 years and their first with Diamond Dave in 28 years.

I doubt I’ll pick this one up, at least not on its release on February 7, but I’m going to keep my eye on Van Halen to see where this thing goes. It may prove to be more interesting than I’m giving it credit for.

My Love Is Rotten To The Core

I don’t know how you can manage to screw up Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,” but somehow Pearl Jam manages to do it in the following clip. I much prefer the Minutemen cover on the SST compilation The Blasting Concept Volume II.
