WOLFGANG VAN HALEN Goes Record Shopping, Buys A Lot Of MESHUGGAH

Shocking.

Wolfgang Van Halen hit the stacks at Amoeba Records for their recent What's In My Bag? and – shocking – he bought a lot of Meshuggah records. I mean, other stuff too, but definitely Meshuggah. Van Halen's picks are:

  • MeshuggahImmutable
  • MeshuggahNothing
  • MeshuggahKoloss
  • Foo FightersBut Here We Are
  • blink-182ONE MORE TIME…
  • The BeatlesAbbey Road
  • CrossesGoodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete.
  • Van HalenThe Collection II
  • TurnstileGlow On
  • Nine Inch NailsAdd Violence
  • Mammoth WVHMammoth II

Van Halen previously expressed his love of bands like Meshuggah (and Tool), both of which he feels put on an incredible live show. Which is absolutely correct – they do.

"I never do anything in the studio that I can't do live. Sure, there are tricks that you can do to do stuff that you wouldn't normally be able to do, but why would you wanna do that? 'Cause it's about creating music that you're capable of doing and that you can do live.

"I go to a concert to see bands play the fuck out of their music. Like Meshuggah — that was my favorite concert I'll ever see. Because they just kill it. They just stand there and they just play the fuck out of their music. I don't go to a concert to see a guy going around and be, like, 'How are you feeling tonight?' That's not my shit. Like Tool — they stand there and they destroy. That's what I love about music. And that's what we try to do with Mammoth, is that first and foremost, we are playing everything and we're doing it to the best of our ability."
