    What the fuck is Source of Erection? A Van Hagar song? Did Spam write it about Ed's pelvis?

    The thing is Sammy brags about taking 5 minutes to write the stuff like Cabo Crapo.
    Here are his Source of Infection lyrics in their entirety, Shakespeare would be proud:
    "Hey

    Yeow
    Crank it, blow out
    Uh, ouch
    Help me
    Now flip on over
    Oh baby, you know that I like it (woop, woop, woop)
    she choked the chain
    (Round and round) she got the hook
    (Movin' up and down) can't get away

    They could afford to do anything and rewrite whatever deal is needed to get ADKOT back on the streaming platforms...

    But the attorney fees would exceed the income potential for all that effort. Plus based on Dave's recent rants I suspect MeatWolf and the Bettinelli's have pissed off Dave and potentially Alex to the point where they landed on "Fuck you!™ " in the business discussions. As always with these jackasses... The drama drives their motivation!

    Much more important than the shitty lyrics though is his inability to write good vocal melodies. He is a mediocre talent and part of him deep down knows it which is why he acts the way he does.

    Hagar is a dick because he is (rightly) insecure. When Dave is a dick it's because he is (rightly?) a narcissist.

    One of these days, when I'm really bored and have nothing to do, I'm going to make a new song lyric by taking lyrics from different Sam songs and put together...the worst song lyric ever. It will be a thing of ugliness and a tragedy forever.

    Hagar just keeps proving he’s a bigger train wreak than we thought possible. Dave baited the fool. Now Dave is laughing at the response. Dave’s best troll is I have the legacy and I can goof off and not give a shit. Sam thinks he can steal the legacy and is serious about it. Dave is the class clown getting the laugh’s at Sam’s expense.

    Dr. Frankenstein Hagar is still trying to recreate Eddie Van Halen. He would be digging up the body if it weren’t cremated.

    At which point you will literally be Sammy Hagar...

    I would suggest this is a poor idea.

    Yeah fill your head with that filth and you will start wearing yellow tights with a Hawaiian shirt and get hard every time you look at a man’s ass. You will have fantasies about getting anal probed in outer space.

    I'm actually surprised by this post. I'm not a Nirvana fan at all but for you to be so utterly ignorant of why their music was so incredibly popular is almost disappointing.

    I think Nirvana was a decent punk band. They made noise about as good as The Ramones and Sex Pistols. The grunge label was to fool people into thinking it was something new. It would have killed Sammy Hagar if he wasn’t in with one of the biggest guitar God’s of all time. People were only interested in Eddie in the Hagar era.

    Great content in this thread Rikk but this is the bit that has stayed with me because I've always assumed that's what all(good) sex is like for a hetro guy.

    I just thought that female orgasms are more work but much better but now you've made me wonder if I've somehow been missing out... damn.

    It's the great philosophical question: WHY does a guy care if his girlfriend-for-the-night achieves orgasm?

    Is it because he truly cares that she had as good a time as he did?

    Is it because his ego needs feeding (the girl is falling asleep and the guy is thinking to himself, "Yeah, I fucking sure made her cumm!!")?

    Is it because he wants to make sure that his reputation for being a great lover is promoted (the guy imagines Jenny going to her friends the next day, saying, "Wow, Johnny made me cumm so much, it was so fucking awesome!")?

    There are some guys who literally could not care whatsoever, I suppose. The kind of guy who blows his load in 2-minutes, rolls off of his quick-lover, grabs the girl's wallet to get cab fare (or grabs the girl's phone to use her Uber-app for his ride...that's my 21st-century version), gives the girl a phone number that isn't his on his way out the door)...that guy probably does not care one iota if the girl achieved orgasm.

    I do remember (from my single days) being with women a few times who were going on about how great it was and me thinking, "That really wasn't that great. Was it even worth the trouble? And now I have to lie here and hold her for at least 15 minutes before I make my excuses and exit... Oh, shit. She's not expecting me to spend the night, is she?"

    Sometimes, I was a real dick when I was a younger, single guy. I remember once having sex with a girl I'd known for a little while and then five minutes later (as we were lying there), I was telling her casually that I was thinking of getting back together with my ex-girlfriend (having no idea that this girl had been falling for me). I mean, that's a really shitty, insensitive thing to do.

    Hagar is insecure but they're both narcissists--Hagar WAY more than Dave. Dave doesn't put giant murals of his face across the walls of his restaurants and throw himself annual satellite birthday parties or name albums after his fucken birthday. Spam takes narcissism to new heights.

    This.

    Yes.

    THAT is what pisses me off about Dave Grohl. I NEVER trust people who project a "nice guy" status 24 hours a day in stereo.

    Dave Grohl is clearly a narcissist himself. He constantly makes himself the center of attention in tons of situations. He plasters his face everywhere and makes himself the center of attention in every single rock and roll situation he can.

    The whole "I'm a nice person" public persona makes me instantly suspicious. Look at that fucking wackjob Ellen DeGeneres. She was preaching the whole "be kind" bullshit and acting like every celebrity's best friend for years. THEN, big surprise, she turned out to be a fucking abusive cunt.

    Dave Grohl and Sammy Hagar are both the Ellen DeGeneres personas of rock and roll.

    Did you ever see that Sound City documentary? He made the whole thing about him and his band. Everyone in the documentary who had a history with the studio recorded a song with his band and the documentary ends with this guy all high and mighty, gawking at the original studio console now being in his home studio. To him, it’s all about… him.

    It's just like that SONIC HIGHWAYS thing he did (8 episodes, talking about the scene in each city...e.g. Chicago, Washington, D.C., Seattle, etc.). Grohl talks about the music scene in each city, interspersing it with footage of his band recording a song that is a tribute to that scene.

    It's one of the most self-serving things I've ever seen. When you talk about Bad Brains or Steve Albini or all sorts of legends and then cut to Foo Fighters lumping themselves in with all those people/bands, it comes off as extremely self-important.

    Did some digging around and found some sales figures for ADKOT up to december 2012, that I found before in 2012.
    It actually sold more outside the States where it was at roughly 423,000.
    They are from the mediatraffic webmaster and reposted on this french site.
    They were at 875,000 worldwide up to then and still selling roughly a 1000 a week.

    Scroll down to top albums and you'll see it at number 40 worldwide.

    ADKOT is forgettable in the context of the Original Six Pack. It's still a great great record, but it doesn't even stack up. That's how incredible 78-84 is. But ADKOT is missing one of the key ingredients that made the original work (Mike's voice), and it's missing the off-the-floor vibe that comes through in the sound and makes the early songs endlessly fun. You can't capture that intentionally in a post-production and if you can, it only works one or two times before it runs dry. Because it didn't unfold naturally. And that ties into the awful production which again, pales in comparison to what Templeman did.

    The solo artist rock star and that's what Grohl is too, must be especially problematic because your band mates are your employees as is just about everyone you deal with day to day apart from your fans who suck your dick even more. Most of your friends are your employees. Do they laugh more at your jokes because of that? Did Grohl know how much drugs Taylor Hawkins was taking because according to his autopsy it was a hell of a lot and they seemed like best buddies but fundamentally the bottom line is TH was his employee and so secrets?

    Who knows...?

    Grohl...he just seems to think he's, like, The Last Rock Star Standing or some such shit.

    Thinking of that lame trend of all these older, established musicians who hadn't had a hit in years and who started jumping onstage with the Foo Fighters...Roth did that at one point. It was like, when was Dave Grohl selected by the 'Rock Music Community' as the All-Time Arbiter of what is Cool In Rock? Sometime in the early 2000's, I guess.

    Thing of it for me is...Grohl wasn't even the most interesting guy in Nirvana...or even the second most interesting guy in Nirvana, for that matter.

    When I see or read comments about how Grohl is one of the best rock drummers ever or some such thing...even putting the fact that there is no best rock drummer ever to one side, rest assured Dave Grohl isn't the best drummer of all time. He doesn't even make the Top 100 of that hypothetical list.

    I just don't fucking get why the Foo Fighters are so revered by the general public. Foo Fighters music to me just comes across as a rock band faking the rebel yell. Someone likened it to McDonald's hamburgers vs. filet mignon. But I actually don't mind a McDonald's hamburger once in a blue moon. I've never had the slightest feeling toward the Foo Fighters that anything they ever did approached or even came close to the level of meaningful to where I couldn't imagine my life without their music. I can't understand what people who like them get from their music.

    I love “Wrapped Around Your Finger”. The best part is the lyrical inversion at the end where he tells her she will be wrapped around his finger.

    I know what you mean but, that's not really true, because remember starting with Fair Warning Ed starting do a lot of overdubbed solos and guitar work without the rest of the group there. The thing is, if Dave has his way, even the cd's of ADKOT will no longer be made, so he's trying to erase the Van Wolf era from the history books, which is stupid in the Internet age.
    Best bet is to work out a piggyback deal with the Rhino records division of Warner brothers.

    Personally, I think this has more to do with leverage, than Dave hating ADKOT. I think he's tired of this entitled fat fuckwad holding up anything to do with the CVH brand. Whether it be vault material. Whether it be old live shows, audio or video. Whether it be anything to do with CVH, period. I think Dave is pissed off that this kid brushes CVH under the rug. I think Dave is pissed off that this kid has built his brand off CVH, yet wants to act like CVH didn't exist. I think Dave feels exactly the same as me. Fuck this entitled fat fuck for hating CVH and CVH fans. Dave doesn't want this motherfucker to gain one red cent off his hard work. Hard work that the Wolf boy blatantly does not appreciate.

    It's a shame that so many Van Hagar and CVH fans are willing to give tubby a free pass because of his last name.

    How many votes are there to get it back on the platforms? It’s just Dave, Al and Wolf voting, isn’t it? Do they have to just be majority vote or does it have to be unanimous? I think Al has more control than people think.

    I think he does but for some reason Alex doesn't want to rock the boat with Bertinelli Inc.

    I mean he shouldn't give a fuck but clearly he does. Doesn't want to do anything that Wolf doesn't agree with.

    To be honest, Wolf and his mother and uncle are taking advantage of Al in this way.

    Totally agree, Von.

    And what was that shit remark W aimed at CVH fans a couple of weeks ago, “only twice divorced 54 year old men who only want to hear Panama” supposed to accomplish? I wonder if he’s aware that his shit attitude is keeping me from shopping his inherited guitar line. Hopefully many others, too.

    I'm not sure why you think Al is afraid to rock the Bertinelli boat. Dave stated neither he nor Al are willing to spend the bucks on attorney fees. Per my post above, I wouldn't be surprised if Al doesn't feel the exact same way. He's probably tired of this fat fuck profiting off the CVH brand, while disparaging it.

    Doesn't matter if it has to be unanimous. Dave and Al are on the same page.

    I agree. I am pretty sure Al has more control than we know. But he may not have access to 5150. Not sure what kind of legalities would be involved for him to get the material in that vault.
