During such turbulent times, it’s never a bad idea to cozy up (or rock out) with a familiar classic. This Friday, March 27Ozzy’s Boneyard (Ch. 38) is airing a special to celebrate Van Halen‘s Women and Children First and its enduring reputation throughout the 40 years since its release.

This exclusive session, 40 Years of Van Halen’s ‘Women and Children First,’ will be highlighting each song from the album with never-before-heard insight and analysis every hour. Van Halen fans and rock aficionados alike won’t want to miss this nostalgic throwback to a historic moment in the band’s career.

Women and Children First, Van Halen’s third studio album, reflected a harder turn for the band in terms of both music and themes. This album is also responsible for one of the band’s most popular songs, “Everybody Wants Some!!,” which was featured in the cult classic Better Off Dead, post-apocalyptic comedy Zombieland, 2016 film of the same name, and even the Guitar Hero: Van Halen game (which includes three other tracks from the album).

Hear it all on Ozzy’s Boneyard starting on Friday, March 27 at 12pm ET until Monday, March 30 at 3am ET.
