VIDEO: Van Halen’s David Lee Roth In A Box

You may soon be able to take Van Halen singer David Lee Roth with you wherever you go; or, at least, Roth’s vocal yelps, whoops and screams.

Dave Rogge of Brooklyn has created a new "Roth Scream Box."

The battery-powered unit is designed to play the isolated vocal tracks of Roth singing “Runnin' With the Devil,” the first song from Van Halen's 1978 debut.

Rogge says he plans to have units similar to this one on sale via online marketplace Etsy in the coming months.

No word on whether Rogge will face any copyright infringement issues should he begin actually selling the item, which he says he built in his basement workshop.

Roth’s isolated vocal track appeared online a few years ago, and has since been incorporated into online games and on a wide variety of mashups.

Sample the Roth Scream Box, the full vocal track and the original Van Halen video below.
