When it has came down to Van Halen, they have had so many hits over the past 35 years. But it has honestly been awhile since we've heard the classic rifts of Eddie Van Halen, and company. But they have had so many singers including Sammy Hagar and Gary Cherone. But when word came out that David Lee Roth was returning as lead singer, I was skeptical to hear Van Halen again. Their returning single, their first in 14 years with Tattoo, from the upcoming album A Different Kind Of Truth, stands well. While it isn't a classic, it is nice to hear what David has with Van Halen up their new sleeves. While the song isn't really as strong as Jump or Right Now had shown for Van Halen, it sounds honestly better than what has came out of the music scene for the past several years. Hopefully, their returning album can be a home run, but this will do for a triple.

Anybody that knows anything about Van Halen will totally dig this tune. Tattoo has that classic Van Halen sound. Yes, I would love to see Michael Anthony in the band so we get his high vocals. But Tattoo still has that signature VH back-up vocal sound. Is it a studio trick? Perhaps it is. It doesn't matter, it just plain sounds great to my ears. This song makes me smile because these guys are back in top form. Look out young bands. Prepare yourselves to be given a lesson on how it's done. I can't wait for the full release.

Love him or hate him David Lee Roth is the key ingredient that makes VH the greatest of the 80's rock bands. He seems to bring out the best in Eddie and drives their foundation shaking, fun loving, "sex, drugs and rock and roll" attitude with his showmanship, rock talk vocals and tongue in-cheek (mmmm?) lyrics, gotta love Dave. This song has all those essential VH traits...it reminds those of us from that era of the good times past and those yet to come...and if you ask me that is what Rock and Roll is all about. The Tattoo video is available on their site at van-halen.com, check it out.

Keep on Rocking with Diamond Dave and the Van Halen Bros. y'all!

After the first listen this song is catchy, I like it a lot. I can't wait for the rest of the album.

Hoping the rest of the album rocks a bit harder. Michael Anthony's harmony & backing vocals are surely missed by this fan...and 19-year-old Wolfgang simply does not fit in with his three 60 year old cohorts...but I digress...

I'll start by saying that David Lee Roth is one of my favorite pop lyricists of all time. His songs on the Roth-era VH are always interesting and always work to create a sustaining image and colorful in the mind, however silly or over the top. For the greatest rock and roll party band of all time, those lyrics with their mixture of pompous strutting and humorously self-deprecating banter will go down well in history. Even after VH, 'Eat 'em and Smile' was full of utterly unique song material from 'Elephant Gun' to 'Yankee Rose'. Yankee Rose in particular was and remains a masterpiece of pop-metal craftsmanship, tailor made for the time.

But things went kind of downhill for Dave, lyrically and otherwise, after that and while 'Tatoo' is a good effort, it's certainly not the return to form I was hoping for. The idea is fine, but doesn't go anywhere funny or interesting. Musically, the song is fine, but not strong enough to endure in the ear without a colorful lyrical hook.

Good to hear them recording again, but Michael Anthony really is sorely missed. As a father myself I can totally appreciate the desire to get his son involved, but their sound and presence can only suffer for it.

So much good material already, though, so they've certainly earned the right to do as they see fit. I'll buy the album to support them and hope for the best, but my expectations are not sky high by any means.

When I first heard this song, I was massively disappointed thinking, "Is this really their best song from their new album?!" But after hearing it about 50x that first week it was released, it kind of grew on me--it's definitely catchy--just not what I was expecting for Van Halen's first single.

I still think it's by far their weakest song from A DIFFERENT KIND OF TRUTH and don't understand why it was chosen to be their first single? Even though it is catchy, I can barely tolerate it. I'd really give it 2.5 stars but since I can't, I'll stick with 2/5.
