  • Although 1988's OU812 was another mega-seller for Van Halen, it turned out to be a somewhat rushed affair, since the group was under a strict deadline to finish it in time for the start of the band's summer concert festival, "Monsters of Rock." More time was spent on 1991's FOR UNLAWFUL CARNAL KNOWLEDGE, and it shows--it's one of the best and most consistent Van Halen release of the Sammy Hagar era. It also turned out to be the line-up's heaviest and most rock-oriented release, due in part to the involvement of Led Zeppelin producer Andy Johns.
  • The album spawned several popular singles and MTV videos, such as the album-opening "Poundcake" (which the group performed live on the 1991 MTV Video Music Awards), and the more pop-oriented tracks "Runaround," "Top of the World," and "Right Now." Also featured was the Eddie Van Halen solo guitar piece "316" (written for his newly-born son, Wolfgang), as well as "Judgement Day," "Pleasure Dome," and "Man on a Mission." The ensuing tour for the album eventually resulted in Van Halen's first live album, 1993's LIVE: RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW.

For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge (also known as F.U.C.K.) is the ninth album by the American hard rock band Van Halen, released in 1991. The album's title came from lead singer Sammy Hagar, who wanted to push the issue of censorship with naming Van Halen's album with a vulgarity, saying "That's when censorship was a big issue. I wanted to name the album just Fuck." Hagar eventually backed away from the outright vulgarity after he was (mis)informed by his friend, former world lightweight boxing champion Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini, that the word "fuck" was an acronym for the phrase "For unlawful carnal knowledge.". Their tour promoting the album was named F.U.C.K. 'n' Live.

An amusing title for teenage boys, that is for sure. I remember! However, this album is just consistently average. 316 I guess is ok to listen to, but you would probably be better off buying a live album of best of with that track on it, not this. So there you go.
