Van Halen – Right Now

Posted in 1991, MTV Video Award Winner, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen on October 15, 2007 by pelicancup

In 1991, Van Halen released their album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. Right Now was one of the defining songs for Van Halen during the Sammy Hagar years. It was used in the Crystal Pepsi commercials, and it was played before tipoff at each Chicago Bulls basketball game during their heyday in the early 90’s.

This music video won three awards at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, including the award for Video of the Year. Sadly, producer Carolyn Beug was killed on September 11, 2001 as a passenger on American Airlines Flight 11 en route to Los Angeles from Boston.

Van Halen – Poundcake

Posted in #1 Mainstream Rock Charts, 1991, Arena Rock, Glam Rock, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen on June 18, 2007 by pelicancup

Poundcake is the opening track on Van Halen’s 1991 album, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It reached #1 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts. The album was named For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge because Sammy was mis-informed by his good friend Boom Boom Mancini who told him that F*ck meant For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. It doesn’t, but 1991 was when censorship was such a big deal, and Sammy wanted to make a statement. Enjoy the video!
