So, I had been thinking of covering this Van Halen song from 1979 with my guitars, but the more I practiced the intro and the leads...the more it wanted to go this direction. Hey, if David Lee Roth can "bluegrass" it...Why not techno...I was even thinking of vocoder effects on the vocals, but that would mean doing the whole song....Van Halen's "Ain't Talking Bout Love".
Let me tell you how much fun it ISNT, to transcribe guitar to "keys" using a guitar, mouse and guitar pro, to figure out where the notes go. It isn't. So this is all you get.

Enjoy my techno cover of Van Halen's "Ain't Talking Bout Love"


im not a fan of techno...

...but this is an awesome translation. the original cant touch this. i can listen to it ten times in a row and not get tired of it, almost as if it were touched by all the gods...


pretty good man.. I feel ya with guitar pro the guitar and trying to write into fruity loops.. I re-wrote Dragonforces-through the fire and flames into techno and wow thats a lot of notes to be looking at.. and there so damn high they all blend together.. it becomes a real pain in the ass about 20mins in to it haha

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Agreed man. haha. Thanks for the review!

Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Elderly Porn

I can't count the number of times I sat with my guitar and guitar pro trying to transcribe shit to keys, I feel your pain. This sounds pretty good as an electronic song for sure, man. Trying to play it on guitar is a bitch though.

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

I know. Haha, I knew the notes, but my fingers wouldn't fucking let me do it, without copious amounts of practice. (damn eddy and his magic fingers). So anyways, it came to this. haha.

Thanks for the review, dude!!

Lol Techno

Oh crap, Bad is now producing Techno songs, it means that Newgrounds AP is dying lol. I just listened to original song and LOL. You cover is great, the instruments you used were nice and you it sounded quite professional haha. Hum, I haven't anything to say about this song ... just add fucking vocals on it with a vocoder for the laugh :P.

And keep on submitting boatloads of song to NG so I can increase my number of audio reviews lol. And speaking about audio reviews, I'm updating the top 100 audio reviewers, so make sure to stop by the thread ; ). YOu know the score ! 0'd as well.

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

HA. Thanks man, I do have a version, up to the end of the first chorus with retarded vocoded vocals, but...I'll share on messenger only. haha.

As for submissions go, I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm in the process of removing some stuff. There are some reasons behind this, I'll share with you on messenger if you are interested. But basically, I'm only going to be uploading collabs and fun things like this on newgrounds from now on. :D
Anyways, thanks as always. Wish you lived closer. Love to jam with you, maybe I could learn a thing or two. :D\m/


Cool beats and the other instruments very good as well, but I thought this song was going to have the drums and the guitar like your other kick ass songs. Still, this song was really good. Another great work, Bad-Man! 10/10 5/5

Bad-Man-Incorporated responds:

Techno! Its a revolution!!
Haha. I kid.
Thanks for the review, man. Glad you liked it.
