25 Years Ago: How ‘Humans Being’ Spelled Disaster for Van Halen and Sammy Hagar

It was really going downhill in early 1996 for Van Halen with Sammy Hagar, and the drama surrounding “Humans Being,” a song they initially did for the soundtrack to the film Twister, was the final straw for the second era of the band. Over at Ultimate Classic Rock, I did a deep dive on just what went wrong and why, how Hagar gave exactly what he was instructed not to give while the singer said it was precisely what the director of the movie wanted.

Like so much of the history in VH, it didn’t end well, but at least fans got a great song out of it. Check out the article here, or view the video below for one of the angriest songs the band ever did.
