Van Halen has released an acoustic performance of "You Really Got Me".
The video is in the spirit of "The Downtown Sessions", the bonus DVD that makes up part of the Deluxe Edition of their forthcoming new album, "A Different Kind Of Truth" (due February 7).
The full "Downtown" DVD features 4 acoustic video performances "Panama", "You And Your Blues (Intro)", "You And Your Blues" and "Beautiful Girls!"
The footage of The Kinks' classic was shot at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles.
Of course, the band's 1978 debut single was the supercharged Halen-ized version, which served as the group's introduction to music fans outside of Southern California.
Van Halen's 2012 tour kicks off February 18 in Louisville, Kentucky.
