** Also, when the true reason for the brown M&M's contract rider came out (As a sign that their concert setup safety arrangements contact was read thoroughly), it was hailed as a clever SecretTest idea to make sure things were properly arranged.

** Also, when the true reason for the brown M&M's contract rider came out (As a sign that their concert setup safety arrangements contact was read thoroughly), it was hailed as a clever SecretTest idea to make sure things were properly arranged. The catalyst was that at a previous concert, the venue involved had little or no regard for safety procedures, to the point where a single accident caused expensive damage to the band's equipment.

** He was off ''illicit'' drugs. He did clean up once to record "Jamie's Cryin'", but... well, TheOtherWiki speaks for itself:

** Wolfgang Van Halen is regarded as an inferior bassist to Michael Anthony as well, though this can boil down to fans still being bitter on Michael being forced out for [[NoodleIncident no clear reason.]]

* Tear Jerker: Some would consider "In a Simple Rhyme" this, based on its lyrics about nostalgia for one's old, failed love life.

** "A Year to the Day" is about a quaint smallholder on a failing, dying and barren ranch that's leaving him completely broken on the inside. Things apparently became like this because of someone leaving him one year ago, possibly from a bitter divorce or a death of someone close to him. It's clear that the experience must've been truly horrible, since the chorus states that he "barely survived". Couple that with one of the saddest instrumental backing tracks in Van Halen's entire discography, and some truly haunting and echoey vocals from Gary Cherone, and you'd be hard pressed to stay dry-eyed by the end.

** "A Year to the Day" is about a farmer on a failing, dying ranch that's leaving him completely broken. Supposedly he became like this because of someone (presumably a girl) leaving him, as some lines indicate. Couple that with one of the saddest instrumental backing tracks in Van Halen's entire discography, and some truly haunting and echoey vocals from Gary Cherone, and you'd be hard pressed to stay dry-eyed by the end.

** "Not Enough" is a soft, sad power ballad that could easily bring one to tears if in the right mood.
