A.V. Undercover

Brass Bed covers Van Halen’s “Why Can’t This Be Love”
About This Episode

Louisiana’s Brass Bed is no stranger to shifting direction. Started as a bedroom recording project, on this year’s In The Yellow Leaf the band has grown into something larger and more ambitious. It’s fitting that the band opted to tackle Van Halen’s “Why Can’t This Be Love,” the first single from the band’s Van Hagar era, which changed direction but showed it could still be a commercial success. Here, Brass Bed inserts some of its own roots-rock folkiness, giving Sammy Hagar a taste of something different.
