In 1984, Van Halen released their album 1984, and it spawned three top 15 Hot 100 singles and four top 25 Rock singles. The first single Jump became Van Halen’s first number one song on the Hot 100 charts. They followed Jump up with two number 13 songs on the Hot 100 charts with I’ll Wait and Panama. The fourth and last single released from the album was Hot For Teacher. It didn’t chart in the top 40 on the Hot 100 charts, but it did peak at number 24 on the Mainstream Rock charts. Hot For Teacher was the last official single released from the original Van Halen lineup of David Lee Roth, Michael Anthony, Eddie Van Halen, and Alex Van Halen.
Hot For Teacher might not have been as popular with the masses as the first three singles, but the music video is one of our all time favorite music videos from Van Halen. Enjoy this look back at Van Halen’s music video for Hot For Teacher as well as a rare live video for I’ll Wait, one of Van Halen’s more underrated, but really good songs!
