I've always felt that VH's album closers were a little overlooked so let's focus on the Roth era studio album closers. Which one do y'all like best?

In A Simple Rhyme is one of my favorite Van Halen songs, mostly because it's so different than the rest of the album it's from. A truly lovely tune.

"House Of Pain" for me, although the '78 demo is a better version. All the non-single tracks off of 1984 are gold, in my opinion

Went with On Fire from my first VH album as a new release.... Love Beautiful Girls too and could have easily picked that one. Hell, all of the songs are good. Beats Workin is a great way to end the new album.

"Happy Trails" has always pissed me off. I hate tat song to begin with and Roth's bum-ba-dee-da's and Mikey's high pitched vox make me hate it exponentially more.

I went with Beautiful Girls, that's just a good catchy tune it's one I always like to jam, I haven't heard the new album though, but On Fire is great too. Yeah Happy Trails is one that could have been left off the album and it would have been ok.

I went with On Fire, mainly due to the fact that the S/T is my favorite VH album.

I went with Happy Trails. I know it's stupid, but it's a fun way to close an otherwise unremarkable album

I went with Simple Rhyme because it kicks ass and DLR's lyrics are humorous

Beautiful Girls.

I've always been a sucker for sweet talkin' honeys with a little bit of money. Turns my head around every time.
