haha,

there was a vivid discussion if a sample rate conversion of the synth part made up the ca. one semitone difference.

people at youtube fanatically started "proving" or "disproving" that, like if there was nothing worse in their lives than van halen playing a semitone down.

of course it still sounds awful, but i'd prefer a detuned van halen to... say many other musicians out there.

I'm aware of "the show must go on" principle... but does Van Halen have such a big ego that couldn't stop the show and sort out what's wrong? Don't these guys do rehearsals, mic checks? I'd be mighty annoyed to pay for a concert when the musicians are this unprofessional.

Exactly. Sometimes the show just shouldn't go on.

(I should know, I work in theatre!)

Sometimes the show just shouldn't go on.

Exactly my thoughts when I heard the Rolling Stones play at the Super Bowl a while back.

Even if the show had gone on, there definitely should never have been any "massive inflatable SM58 humping" going on.

(Around 4:00 in the above clip, to save you from watching the whole thing)

I've decided this is the worst song ever. Yes, that's a really big call, I know...

Wow. That's worse than what I previously thought was the worst song ever.

Worst show I've ever been to was when I took my young lady to a Funeral For A Friend show. Dear God, they're bad.

Now, I'm sorry to inflict this on you guys but since you brought up the topic of the worst song evar! I thought I might share this:

Although Helge's (that's the guy in TK's video) style might be a little strange, he is actually a very good jazz musician. I saw him live, and his playing was great!

I agree! His lyrics don't stand for his musical genius.

Babelfish translation of the song:

(Katzeklo means "cat litter pan")

Refrain: Katzeklo, Katzeklo, makes the cat glad.

Katzeklo, Katzeklo, makes the cat glad.

You want to have a clean cat, courage you in the supermarket for Katzeklo ask.

Refrain

You go in the supermarket, purchase something nice for the cat.

Refrain

A cat wants to eat all the time, a cat wants to eat all the time. I give its which, I give their which does not pay to eat you to anything dafr… and that is well

The cat frit me the hair of the head. A cat frit all day long. So that she well is, them want to eat. I set up its which… it it

Refrain
