And now for something completely different…here’s another Van Halen classic that’s been turned into an acoustic folk song!
Nashville-based duo State Room interprets Van Halen’s epic opener to the Fair Warning album—”Mean Street“—recorded live, in their shower, and in one take.
As far as people covering Van Halen, we prefer the risky covers that are totally unique and different interpretations. That’s because whenever anybody does a straight ahead rock version—while we appreciate it—it’s never anywhere near as good as the original. We hope you enjoy this.
Last year, Faye and Mike from State Room performed their first VH cover….a unique and haunting interpretation of what they call “the best Van Halen song of all time,” “Hear About It Later.” Watch that one HERE.
