Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth says that he believes the band's music is "timeless" when he was asked about abundance of the group's classic songs in his Las Vegas residency set.

Roth spoke to Las Vegas Magazine about the run of shows and they pointed out that he included "plenty of Van Halen classics" during the first run of shows in the series.

He responded, "It's a universal kind of sound that allowed us to do things (like) when Van Halen was brand new, to open for Black Sabbath in 22 cities in England, and two weeks later, we worked with Journey at the height of its Steve Perry (heyday).

"We'll be opening for Metallica on this tour and then we're playing with Rage Against the Machine at the Firefly Festival. It's a universal and timeless sound. Nobody ever looks at Bruce and goes, 'Wow, Springsteen, what a great '70s act.' I don't think anyone is looking at what they hear in our music and finding a time capsule."
