This week not only have Eric Senich (Booked on Rock Podcast and writer at the Van Halen News Desk) but we also have CoreyGeek from the Geekspin Podcast. This week we talk Van Halen’s 5150.

We all share our first listening experiences with the album, oversaturation, T-Shirt bands, Wolfgang Van Halen, Valerie, the late great band Mitoma, parachute pants, wings and rings, that damn Van Halen mousepad. And of course, we begin our song by song analysis of the first three songs of 5150: Good Enough, Why Can’t This Be Love, and Get Up.

Don’t worry folks, in one more week, you get to hear the conclusion of the album analysis and the final tally of just which are the best songs on the album.
