Mean Street

Lyrics

At night I walk this stinkin' street past the crazies on my block
And I see the same old faces and I hear that same old talk
And I'm searching for the latest thing, a break in this routine
I'm talkin' some new kicks, ones like you ain't never seen
full lyrics
At night I walk this stinkin' street past the crazies on my block
And I see the same old faces and I hear that same old talk
And I'm searching for the latest thing, a break in this routine
I'm talkin' some new kicks, ones like you ain't never seen

Nobody else does this Guitar work........ . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Van Halen"s darkest album.
The main riff is probably my favorite from VH.
Fair Warning is Van Halen's best album. Dirty, heavy and the guitar is incredible.
One of the best
DLR is Van Halen

This is home!! This mean street!! My brother n I can relate to this song. Tough neighborhood .
The guitar is amazing, it feels so alive!
Oh, I do love me some classic Van Halen. David Lee for the win!

Hardest rockin' album they ever did!
Fair warning is Vanhalen at their best.
they still had diamond dave and Eddie did his talking with his guitar
before losing his balls by going pop, synthasizer, etc.
One of my first of many records.
