Van Halen, ‘Growth’ – Best Hidden Tracks

A few seconds after the end of ‘In a Simple Rhyme,’ which is supposed to be the last song on Van Halen’s ‘Women and Children First’ album, Eddie Van Halen and company suddenly launch into another track. With a slow, stomping beat and a guitar riff that sounds like it should accompany Godzilla on his march to a boxing ring, it’s quite the attention grabber.

Sadly, before David Lee Roth can even get a single word in, everything stops not even 30 second later. Supposedly the plan was for the full-length version of ‘Growth’ to be the first song on their next album, ‘Fair Warning.’ However, that never happened, leaving us all to wonder once again just exactly how we can break into the vaults at Van Halen’s 5150 studio.

Next Track: Let's Get Loose
