Another great cover...

...of one of those oldies, from Van Halen, at the Boneyard, Sirius Ch. 19: "They'll be swingin', swayin', records playin', dancin' in the street (dancin' in the street!)..."
I never knew VH did so many cover songs in the David Lee Roth era. I knew this one and "You Really Got Me," but there was also "Ice Cream Man," which I never knew was an old blues song written originally recorded by Midwestern blues man John Brim back in the early '40s. I also just recently heard their recording of the old Linda Ronstadt song "You're No Good." It was pretty good too, but as far as that song goes you just can't beat the original.
