Van Halen Tattoo Music Video Arrives

Van Halen just released the music video for “Tattoo,” the group’s first song with David Lee Roth in the lead in 27 years. Wow. And yes, they do look older than they did the last time Roth led the band – but who wouldn’t (other than maybe Cher, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, or any other fan of plastic surgery)? “Tattoo” is pure Van Halen, a pounding tune that could have been a hit for the group 30 years ago. The video’s not all that spectacular, but the song’s catchy enough.

Watch the music video:

“Tattoo” is the first single off their upcoming A Different Kind of Truth album due to drop on February 7, 2012.
