Previously unreleased rough demos of the album have been uploaded by the Van Halen News Desk and these tracks contain many alternate vocals and even some alternate music.

Hagar recently spoke to Rolling Stone about the album’s 30th anniversary and when asked about he felt about the anniversary, he said “What a trip, man. Unbelievable. I just got out of bed, and what a thing to wake up to. I need some coffee for that one. Wow.”
