Listen to David Lee Roth’s New Song: Is it His Swan Song to Van Halen?

Author: Jim Johnson

Fans have been reading into David Lee Roth‘s new solo track “Ain’t Like Christmas” as featured on his newly revamped webseries The Roth Show, believing it’s Roth’s way of saying he’s split from Van Halen. The lyrics of the track could be about Van Halen — but are ambiguous enough to really be about anything: “Sure looked good on paper, once upon a lie/ Happily never after, and I’m not okay to drive / Let’s put the pin back in this one, and say we both survived / Last blank space on the map I think we’ve arrived / Quittin’ while you’re ahead ain’t quittin’, and I’m quittin.'”

Roth was asked by the Van Halen News Desk ( if the song was indeed about Van Halen, to which Roth responded on February 24th: “It’s poetry. It’s got nothing to do with Van Halen.” Yet on February 29th, Roth tweeted: “On second thought, if all work is autobiographic, maybe this song is about Van Halen. . .”
