Why context matters

So this track is spreading like the proverbial wildfire across the internet this week, and it's easy to see why. It's David Lee Roth's isolated vocal track-cum-asthmatic wheeze from Van Halen's 1978 scorcher "Runnin' With The Devil." I defy you to listen to this all the way through without laughing. Just goes to show that bassist Michael Anthony's background vocals / harmonies were sort you say?...integral to the bands sound.
