  • Favourite Van Halen

    At the moment, my favourite Van Halen song is Ain't Talkin Bout Love. It's got the awesome riff, an emotional solo.... the works.

    Eddie is the man!

    Tell me what your favourite is and why (riff, singing whatever) and maybe I'll discover another gem.

                My favorite Van Halen is any new Van Halen. The song "Human's Being" from the Best Of Vol. 1 is totally the direction VH should be taking on their new stuff. That song kicks my ass hard!

                But as far as classics? -- "Hot for Teacher" or "I'm the One"

                Roth Album -- Fair Warning (Dark and mean, has "Mean Streets")

                Hagar Album -- F.U.C.K. (Some well structured songs and inspirational solos IMO)

                Cherone Album -- Well, c'mon

                          ERUPTION (I thought this was a guitar board )

                          Mean Streets probably has the coolest intro ever, and I agree Humans Being is the direction they should have headed in but my favorite is probably Amsterdam from Balance. One of Eddie's best tones, though a bit overprocessed at times
