What if Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” was sung by a woman?

One of the more popular videos of the DLR era of Van Halen was “Hot for Teacher” from the 1984 album. Yeah, it’s pretty sexist, but that’s what VH was all about, right?

For this version, Greg Kurstin and Inara George tapped Beck to-play the role of the hot teacher. Listen.
