    90's all the way for me, its a wonder that i love van halen so much because i mostly despise the whole 80's attitude in rock. Metallica was fuckin great in the 80's.

    Not to say I liked that constant barrage of cheese metal bands but it was better than the constant barrage of "the world sucks" whiny grunge assholes!!! Grunge reeks!

    1980's, such good music. The last few years of the 1990's turned into shit.

    What I love about classic Van Halen (that is, w/ Dave) is the timelessness of thier music. They were a band in the late 70's and early 80's, but they do not sound like a 70's band or an 80's band...all of their songs sound just as good now as they did back then. This is something that I can't say for a lot of other bands (or singers)

    I agree with F.O.R.D.....VH set the standards for most of god awful hair metal bands & bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden & Pearl Jam etc. set the the trend for all the crap bands like Days Of The New & Creed....I guess were due for a change of pace....hmmmmm maybe some new VH can do the trick.

    Gotta agree with FORD here too, although I was never into this 90s thing too heavily at any time.

    Being that I think the 1990's were UNARGUABLY the worst decade for music, I have to say that this is all 1980's...hands down!

    I think the 1980's were a tremendous decade for music. If I had to list the best decades for RNR music, in my opinion, it would rank like this:

    1) 1980's
    2) 1950's
    3) 1970's
    4) 1960's
    5) 1990's

    Given I was only 1 when the '80s kicked off, you'd think I would prefer the '90s more, right? Well, thank gawd I don't, since on a whole the '90s have sucked when it comes to music.

    Sure, there will be a few holdovers (hopefully not Pearl Jam, I really wish they'd give up already - bad enough when your clone - Creed - does it better than you ever did)

    1980's

    The music is just better and selling out seemed to be unthinkable...

    ------------------
    Right Now, it's safe to add one (1) to my post count.
    Right Now, strange is beautiful.
    Right Now, I'm a Dirty Faced Kid.
    Right Now, teenybopper trash doesn't stand a chance.
    Right Now, MTV has no idea what happens when rabid Van Halen fans have their favorite band insulted.
    Soon Enough, they'll learn the hard way.

    Actually I think the 80's was/were the worst decade for music.....Van Halen, AC/DC, Iron Maiden & early Crue were the only good things happening in the 80's, every thing else was shit. The 60's & 70's were much better, I could sit here all day long & name bands that were actual musicians & played with heart & soul & not hair spray....but I won't. The whole 80's scene was awful & far as I'm concerned that shit can just go away & stay away.

    Later

    P.S It's my favorite name too Nature Boy.
