I've talked before about obvious talent being directed towards a specific goal, and I think this song really exemplifies that again. Everything happening here is directed towards making the record move like nobody's business, through both the contrast of the beginning and the spoken word breaks and energy of the surprisingly restrained individual musicians. Its very clear that the drummer is putting all he's got into this, only so he can make the song sound like an idling Ford Pinto, at least at first. Way to go, Van Halen.

And yes, David Lee Roth is annoying. Oh well.
