Turntable Tuesday: Van Halen’s Hot Remake Of A Kink’s Classic

This week in 1978, the guys of Van Halen released their first studio album, simply titled Van Halen. It wasn’t long before fans started calling it one of the greatest debuts in rock history, despite the mixed reviews it received from critics.

The lead single from the album was a hot remake of The Kinks‘ original from 1964.
