    In 2002, People still listen to and like Mozart, Bach, ect. In 300, 500, or even in a 1000 years, will people still listen to Van Halen? I think so. I think that the DLR era of VH will be regarded as the Mozart, or Bach of the 20th century. The Van Hagar era will be looked at as the Lizt, or Salieri of the 20th century. By that, I mean I think people will always regard VH with Dave as being he cream of the crop, and VH with Hagar will still be listened to and enjoyed, but wont be as highly regarded.

    As much as I love VH, I'm pretty damn sure it'll be forgotten in 300 years. As soon as the generation that grew up with it disappears, it'll disappear.

    No one will even remember rock music in 100 years. If you disagree, sing me a quick "Vo-dee-yo-do" number from the thirties. Can't? OH.

    If Van Halen doesn't do something soon, they might not be remembered in 300 days. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    If ANYONE in 100 years remembers rock music from the 80's and 90's, Van Halen won't top the list. As much as it pains me to say it, Bon Jovi will be remembered more than VH.

    BJ will be remembered as the quintessential hair band that had staying power (last time I check they were still together and selling out Giants Stadium). Even though VH was never a hair band, they will be lumped in with all the Dokken's, Ratt's, and Poison's. Such is life.

    In 300 years...
    ...people will have heard about the Beatles, Elvis©, Jimi Hendrix, Hank Williams, and Osama bin Laden. Anyone studying for a doctorate in music history will be listening to Eruption, as it is quite like Flight of the Bumble Bee (not musically, ya know).

    My guess is the Beatles, the Stones, Bob Dylan, and maybe Bruce Springsteen will be somewhat historical. Not so much for the quality or staying power of their music, but because of its ties to the culture. Van Halen and other period bands lack historical value.

    I think a way will have been found to clone them based on their DNA. They could then fix their 'common sense', 'marital dificulty', and 'hair loss' genes. After that VH will rule the world agian!
    Better use it up before it gets old!

    I think people will remember classic VH in 300 years because the music is so good. Take a song like "ain't talkin' bout love," no one will ever write a better rock song ever. When it comes to rock n' roll music, it just doesn't get any better than Van Halen. If people remember rock n roll, then they will remember Van Halen. No one will remember Bon Jovi in 300 years because they suck.

    Music stands the test of time if it is innovative, influential and popular. The original line-up of Van Halen scores on all three counts. Van Hagar scores on one. Bon Jovi scores on one.

    I'm not sure that anything from the 20th century will be remembered in 300 years by anyone but historians but there's no question that the original Van Halen lineup made one hell of a splash back in the day. The ripples from that splash will still be felt in popular music far into the future - even if people can't remeber where those ripples came from.
