Now Hear Van Halen

Are you ready to have your mind blown by the shredding skills of Eddie Van Halen? Well, if you're not, then I suggest you go back to your Barry Manilow records and leave the real music to the big boys. Because when it comes to guitar virtuosos, Eddie Van Halen is the cream of the crop. I mean, the guy's fingers move so fast they could probably start a fire if he played in a dry forest.

But seriously, folks, Eddie's guitar work is nothing short of miraculous. It's like he's got 20 fingers or something. The riffs are so lightning-fast they make Usain Bolt look like he's jogging in slow motion. And the solos? Well, let's just say that Eddie's guitar playing is so fast, he could probably finish a solo before most guitarists even finish tuning their instruments!

If you're looking for some mind-bending guitar work that'll leave you gasping for breath, then you can't go wrong with Van Halen. Sure, you might have to take a break halfway through just to let your brain catch up, but it's totally worth it. Eddie Van Halen may be the king of the fretboard, but he's also a true artist who deserves all the respect he gets.

Now Hear A Classic: The Knack

Ah, The Knack, the band that you can find more copies of in any record store than there are grains of sand on a beach. Seriously, their records are as common as pigeons in the park, and for good reason. These guys had a formula for catchy, upbeat, and incredibly fun pop rock that was so effective that they rode the wave of their debut album "Get the Knack" to super-stardom in the late 70s.

Sure, you might roll your eyes when you see yet another record with "My Sharona" on it staring back at you from the racks, but don't be too quick to dismiss The Knack. Their music may be ubiquitous, but it's also undeniably infectious. The guitar riffs are punchy, the hooks are irresistible, and the lyrics are delightfully cheesy. If you're in the mood for some pure, unadulterated fun, you can't go wrong with The Knack.

So, don't be ashamed to snag a copy of "Get the Knack" or "... But The Little Girls Understand" the next time you're browsing the bins. Yeah, your hipster friends might give you some side-eye, but who cares? You'll be too busy singing along to "Good Girls Don't" at the top of your lungs to care. The Knack may be a guilty pleasure, but they're a pleasure nonetheless.
