David Lee Roth Releases New Van Halen Remake

David Lee Roth has come out with a new solo version of the Van Halen track ‘Atomic Punk.’ This isn’t the first time David has released a re-recorded Van Halen track.

Much like ‘Atomic Punk’ his recent previous releases of ‘Everybody Wants Some!!,’ ‘You Really Got Me,’ ‘Dance The Night Away,’ ‘Panama,’ ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,’ and ‘Unchained’ were all re-recorded during Lee Roth’s studio session last year.

As an artist who claimed to have plans to retire following his Las Vegas residency at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay, it sure seems with his new releases that, he is in no rush to wrap up his journey in the music industry. In an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2021, he even said:

“I am throwing in the shoes. I’m retiring… I’m not going to explain the statement. The explanation is in a safe. These are my last five shows… I’ve given you all I’ve got to give. It’s been an amazing, great run; no regrets and nothing to say about anybody. I’ll miss you all. Stay frosty.”

In addition to these several re-recorded Van Halen tracks, the musician also released two original tracks titled ‘Nothing Could Have Stopped Us Back Then Anyway,’ which came out of a session with John 5 in 2007, and ‘Pointing at the Moon.’

However, the real kicker is what do the fans think about Lee Roth’s solo version of ‘Atomic Punk’? Here’s what one fan commented about the track below the video on Youtube:

“Favorite VH song, and this version by DDLR does the original justice. Hell yeah! I was wondering if you would ever do it yourself and release it for the masses. Thank you, Dave!”
