    Just wondering which of their albums people think is the best. For me I would choose Van Halen II because I just love every song on that album. Plus Spanish Fly is super cool! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Their first, hands down. Raw, loud, and every song's a winner.

    Fair Warning - one of Van Halen's more experimental albums. Also contains the ass-kickin' "Unchained" - one of Van Halen's best tunes.

    The first album is one of the greatest albums in rock history.
    Fair Warning would be my second pick. Listen to the guitar hookline in Mean Street. Eddie Van Halen used to be one very bad man! [​IMG]

    2 or Women and Children First, probably leaning toward 2 more.

    But "Dance the Night Away" has such a great guitar riff, it might be my favorite VH tune.

    Whew. Ya scard me there for a second.

    Hey, I wouldn't put it past Hagar. He's really into that "song" stuff. Yech. Give me silly party tunes and flashy solos any day.

    I'd have to say Fair Warning with the 1st album a close second.
