Montrose's self-titled 1973 debut album has been listed as an influence by various rockers over the years, including Van Halen -- which would later feature ex-Montrose member Sammy Hagar as their singer. And it was the six-string showcase "Bat Motor Scooter" that helped form the initial union between Hagar and guitarist Ronnie Montrose. "I had no experience whatsoever," Hagar recalled to Rolling Stone. "I just wrote the first four songs in my life, which were 'Bad Motor Scooter,' 'Make It Last,' 'One Thing on My Mind' and 'I Don't Want It,' played them for Ronnie [Montrose] upon first meeting, shook my hand and said, 'Let's start a band.' I went from zero to a hundred."
