First, there was the Van Halen–Jackson family collaboration which resulted in the unforgettable guitar solo in “Beat It.” Now, the Van Halens and Jacksons are together again!
This new mashup combines Van Halen’s “Mean Street” and the Jackson 5’s “Dancing Machine”, created by YouTube user Bill McClintock.
Could lightning strike twice? Could an epic guitar song from Van Halen’s Fair Warning album be cleverly combined with a hit song from the Jackson 5? Watch it above and find out!
Not sure? Well, what you think is nothing might be something after all…
Let’s just say, this one is definitely worthy of being featured on VHND. In fact, this is one of our favorite mashups ever.

Van Halen “Mean Street” from Fair Warning. 1981.
The Jackson 5 “Dancing Machine” from Get It Together and Dancing Machine. 1973 & 1974.
