This title is also another reply to one of David Lee Roth's album titles. Take a look at most of the album titles for both after Roth left the band. A little conversation.

To FilaDog: 5150 is NOT the number on Lemmon (yes,two m's) Pharmaceutical's Quaalude tablet, it's 714. I know, I illegally sold 1000's of them in the '70's

A 5150 is a 72 hour involuntary hold in a hospital, usually a mental facility. It is not because you are causing public problems. How do I know? I have had 4 of these little vacations in Psych wards along with a 5250 which is a 14 day hold.

If you can get your hands on the Album of 5150 and read on the plastic around the label it says "Play me loud"

Not really an egg though. It's just how the band came up with the album title, and if you look at the video 'Live without a Net', he explains it there, prior to playing 5150.
