    ...they should change the name of the band. I might have a little more respect for them. They didn't even really play Dave era stuff when he was with them and that was there best stuff! And I'm not talking about Jump, Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love, Panama...I'm talking about the classics that you don't hear on the radio very much...and I know the hardcore fans know what I mean. Call it Van Hagar for all I care just don't call it Van Halen cause it's not! They're just a little better than average rock band without Dave.

    Um ok that's gonna happen...considering they went by Van Halen from 1986-1996 with Sam.

    Dude Dave doesn't even play the hardcore VH stuff, except what like "DOA?"

    I agree, Van Halen is Van Halen and Van Hagar is Van Hagar. Not at all the same..............

    The most distinctive thing about any version of Van Halen is Eddie VAN HALEN's guitar work not any of the singers.Thats why the band is named Van Halen
    The song ain't dirty
    It's really just the way we sing it

    if sam comes back they need to change the setlist. they've pretty much been playing the same one forever now with sam. sam needs to swallow his pride and sing some different dave era songs other than the 4 or 5 he does. sing some runnin with the devil, hear about it later, on fire, everybody wants some, do something different.

    If Ed and/or Al is in the band, I think it should still be called Van Halen. Normally, I use the name 'Van Hager' usually to distinguish between the two eras.
