VAN HALEN – HOT FOR TEACHER – METAL REWIND

VAN_HALEN_1984_World_Tour

Today we take a trip back to 1984 to the sixth and one of the most popular albums by Van Halen titled “1984” for the track “Hot For Teacher.”

The song which reached #56 on the Billboard Top 100 was one of the most popular videos in rotation on MTV and prompted the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) to request that the video and song be pulled from radio and TV due to the “sexually suggestive” lyrics. The beginning of the video shows Waldo (sweet, sweet Waldo) who must face his new surroundings and is very nervous when getting on to the bus. The video also features kid versions of the band members and an impromptu strip show much to the delight of the young kids as well as an excellent solo by Eddie Van Halen.

This was the last album with the original Van Halen lineup of Eddie Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Alex Van Halen and Michael Anthony (except for Van Halen’s Best of which included 2 new tracks). Singer Sammy Hagar replaced Roth in 1986 and sang with the band til his departure in 1996. Former Extreme vocalist Gary Cherone joined the band after Sammy’s departure but parted ways with Van Halen in 1999.
