Video: Van Halen Have A New “Tattoo”

Posted by on January 10, 2012


It’s been 28 years since Van Halen made an album with David Lee Roth. Today, we finally get to hear the first single from A Different Kind of Truth, and “Tattoo” is, well, a decidedly low key way to lead off the album. It sounds a bit like a Sammy Hagar-era song with Dave  singing. If you were to compare it to the Dave-era Van Halen, with it’s synth bed and mid-tempo groove, it reminiscent of something from 1984, perhaps a bit like “Drop Dead Legs.” Dave sounds great on it, as does Eddie. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s good to have the band back. What do you think?
