Running-Related Song of the Week

Time for installment number two of our running related song feature. This week, it's a classic from Van Halen, from the album of the same name: "Running With the Devil"

Why Van Halen? Because they're friggin' Van Halen! The original line-up with Diamond Dave. Pure Gold, baby.

Great running-related line: "Yes I'm livin' at a pace that kills". Anyone who has gone out too fast in a race can attest to that.

Sure, the bass line isn't much (it's one note) but Eddie has a rocking solo, and Dave throws in several larynx-shredding "Yeahhhhhhhhhh!"s.

F.Y.I. - You are required to sing the chorus to anyone wearing bib number 666 at a race. If you don't, the gods of rock will hunt you down and make you bonk. And you don't want that.
