What a month for classic Van Halen weirdness.
First The Smoking Gun uncovered an actually copy of the classic 1982 "No Brown M&Ms" rider. It's 53 pages long, and also specifies "herring in sour cream," four cases of "Schlitz Malt Liquor beer (16 ounce cans)," and "One (1) large tube KY Jelly."
Then came the highly entertaining isolated track from "Runnin' With the Devil".
Then a few weeks ago an enterprising computer savvy fellow made the David Lee Roth Runnin' With the Devil soundboard, which took the internet by storm.
Then Ptichfork presented us with incredibly weird versions of pop songs remade with Microsoft Songsmith (watch the official commercial to understand exactly how painful the program can be), including a bizarre lounge version of, what else, "Runnin With the Devil". And here's a pseudo mall organ version as played through Songsmith as well.
And now it has all came full circle, as Metafilter plopped this on me today: The David Lee Roth version of Asteroids...excuse me, "Assteroids". I am indeed highly amused. But, I think we need to put a lid on this RWTD mocking now before it starts to spread much further. Or not.
