David Lee Roth is now streaming a new studio live rendition of the 1978 Van Halen classic “Atomic Punk.”

The new version was recorded during Roth’s studio session in May 2022 at Hollywood’s Henson Recording Studio. During the performance, Roth was with his most recent touring band, consisting of guitarist Al Estrada, bassist Ryan Wheeler, and drummer Francis Valentino. The band has successfully recorded 14 tracks in 2 hours.

“Atomic Punk” was initially released on the self-titled album debut of Van Halen which peaked at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 and sold more than 10 million copies.

In the previous months, Roth talked about retiring from performing and canceled his Las Vegas residency that was supposed to be his final show. But then later on, made a cryptic statement implying he’s possibly not retiring. He also teased about the possible Van Halen tribute tour that sparked speculations and released studio re-recordings of Van Halen songs in recent months.

The American rock group Van Halen was founded in Pasadena, California, in 1972. Van Halen was renowned for its upbeat live performances and for the virtuosity of its lead guitarist, Eddie Van Halen, and is credited with “restoring hard rock to the forefront of the music industry.” In 2007, the group was admitted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
