Better Off Dead

“Everybody wants some!!”

On the day we lost Eddie Van Halen, the king of modern-day guitarists, we look back at his best moment on film – as part of a sentient Claymation hamburger.

This demented ’80s comedy classic features John Cusack in his prime, plus a relentless paperboy who is quick to inform everyone, “I want my two dollars!”, and 20,000 other surreal, hilarious characters.

But the cherry on top is when fast food hamburgers spring to life, Dr. Frankenstein-style, playing classic Eddie Van Halen guitar riffs and wailing one of his group’s biggest hits.

Rock on, Eddie, always.
