Van Halen

What's your favorite song of the group?

True guitar throughout, I would say Panama; overall, Dreams. The guitar is subtle in the beginning, but it really gets better at the main guitar solo.

Terrible band. Terrible guitar player. They made the 80's look bad. Not independently of course.

"Big Bad Bill" anyone? "Hang Em High"? "DOA"? Some of their not over played tracks are way better than their popular songs

I'll Wait, anyone? Clever lyrics, great synth work by King Edward and the solo ain't bad either. A hidden gem.

That's a tough one.

Favorite OLD Van Halen song (guitar wise) is probably Mean Street

Favorite NEW Van Halen song is Honeybabysweetiedoll

and I love listening to Eddie's isolated guitar tracks on youtube....

I saw them this June, it was a great show.
Favorite part was when Eddie sat down and played Eruption, Cathedral, and Spanish Fly back to back without stopping.

I generally don't have a problem with people posting their opinions about a band even if it's negative, but bickering back and forth about it will lead to warnings and/or bans. Take it easy, folks.
