Driving home tonight, Van Halen’s Right Now came on the radio. Having not heard it in a good 15+ years, I was flashbacked to the night the video world premiered on MTV during primetime, and my entire family (?!) gathered around to watch it. My brother also pieced together, while we all waited for it to come on, that For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, the name of the album, as an acronym spelled “fuck.” Sean’s always been quick like that. After it aired, we all decided all the text was very dramatic and new and cool. 

What a weird point in history. My entire family stopped what they were doing at 8 p.m. on say, a Tuesday, to watch a 3ish minute Van Halen video.

…The early 90s were weird.
