For those of you that weren't aware, Sammy Hagar and Mike Anthony, ex-Van Halen, have formed a band with Satch on guitar and Chad Smith from Red Hot Chili Peppers on drums. That band is named Chickenfoot for reasons I'll never quite comprehend and has a self-titled album due for release in early June. Question is, will it suck? Try these tracks on for size and judge for yourself:

Sounds pretty much exactly how I'd expect it to.
Not mind blowing, but not bad. Just kind of "meh" I guess.
