4. 'Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love' (1978)

Another classic from Van Halen's 1977 debut, "Ain't Talking 'bout Love" is one of the handful of Roth-era songs that Sammy Hagar was willing to perform in concert during his time as frontman. Velvet Revolver played this at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Oddly enough, the only two members of the band to show up were Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony – and they were both out of the band by then.
