      Mostly because they never wrote any great songs.

      .


      One thing Eddie did well is figure out to make heavy guitar based songs RADIO FRIENDLY. This is what separated them from most in the day - it was pretty heavy **************** back then & you could still hear it on the radio ...

      The whole "radio friendly" thing is something the heavier bands of today might want to rethink... I guess nobody wants to be a bonafied rock star anymore

          Ok, I'll fess up. From DAY ONE, when I heard a copy of the Gene Simmons VH demo floating around back in 1977, I did not like Van Halen. This was largely confirmed when VH1 was released. I didn't like their songs, I hated DLR's "singing," and quite honestly, I had zero emotional connection to Eddie's guitar playing. Sure, he had chops, but it just wasn't "my thing" and it didn't catch my ears one bit.

          So while everyone on the planet was losing their minds and finger tapping their brains out, I was coping cool horn lines from Miles Davis and Ornette Coleman

                  Latest album already fell out of my listening rotation


                  great tones, and aggressive guitar playing, no doubt about that....the songs are just missing those VH "hooks" that all the good songs have

                  good effort, I hope they try again

                      Didn't stop them from several sold-out tours in the UK, though.

                      Considering the veritable tidal wave of limp-dick/homo-erotic synth pop that came out of the UK in the 80s, I'd have thought Van Halen would've come off VERY "rough" by comparison.


                      And NWOBH like Iron Maiden Motor Head Venom Diamond head etc... You should think about it before you type. Also check the venues Van halen played and where on the Bills.
                      They have never been so big in the UK, I am not saying they suck, just the UK doesn't get it, its not hot like Florida its miserable and wet like Seattle.
                      That's why we had bands like the smiths.

                        I don't listen to VH very often, but every so often I find myself in the mood for it, and I'll usually listen to Balance or Fair Warning when I do.

                        F.U.C.K is also a pretty enjoyable album. VH I and 1984 are probably a bit overplayed to me, so I rarely listen to either one of those.

                          I like guitar. Therefore I like VH.

                          How can you play guitar and not like VH even a little bit?

                                I am only recently able to listen to VH. hear me out. I started working in a music store in 1981, and owned no VH records, so all I heard were lame attempts by customers. I hated VH. 30 years later, as the memories fade, it turns out they weren't so bad.
                                Well, maybe a little. Remeber the EVH line announcement at NAMM by Fender one year? I was walking by the ballroom as it was going on, and heard playing that sounded to me like a really drunk Eddie. The next day on Youtube I had confirmation that it WAS a really drunk Eddie.
