    Of course they should be number one. How can they be beaten by Nirvana? What's your opinion!!

    Has anyone on the east coast seen the top 20 yet? I still have to wait a while.

    What's this for guys? Top twenty... what? Regardless of what the 20 bands are about Metallica should never be ahead of Van Halen. Van Halen paved the way for Metallica just to step in a take advantage of the van-halen-inspired interest people had in heavy rock in the mid 80's. Yet they are ahead of the almighty Van Halen.

    Thanks for the top 20, Glenn, but what I was really asking was if people on the east have actually watched the final 20.

    Neither Nirvana or Metallica should be in front of VH. That's such a joke. Metallica doesn't even right good songs. I mean, come on, it should take a little more than beating on power chords to get in the top 10. Guns N Roses should be ahead of both Metallica and Nirvana. Heck, VH should be ahead of Hendrix and AC/DC too. I never really liked alot of AC/DC. Hendrix is pretty good but still hasn't written as many good songs as VH. Just because Curt and Jimi died at the peak of their careers doesn't mean that should give them a free ride to the top. Although, Jimi was actually good enough to be in the top 5, but we all know Nirvana was NOT good enough to be ahead of VH!!!! At least they did get one thing right though and put Eddie as the number 1 guitarist.

    I can't believe AC/DC is ahead of VH. That really suprises me. I'm not a fan of AC/DC either. I remember Ed talking about how Panama came about in an interview about the BOV1. It was sorta influenced by AC/DC, when they toured together. He said he wanted that harder edged riff or something. He said something like "I mean it's the same riff/song over and over, but it's a really cool riff/song."

    I think it was in a Guitar mag or something. Anyone else remember this?

    sorry for the ramble.

    I was honestly happy to see VH make the top 10. Granted I thought they should be #1, but VH usually gets royally screwed in little polls like this one. (or screwed even worse - depending on your view)
    I thought the short segment they had on the band was cool. The energy level just seems to go through the roof anytime they show the vintage stuff. Nice to see guys like Henry Rollins and Vernon Reid giving the guys props too.

    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>That was in the January 1997 Guitar World. Speaking about Panama, Eddie said,

    "It was kind of AC/DC inspired. We had just done a tour with them the year before. It was us, Motley Crue and AC/DC in '83, in Europe, and just the power of those guys blew my mind-the constant boom boom boom. They play the same song over and over, but it's a great song."

    This is an interesting quote. Going on the theory that this isn't a mis-print, Eddie seems to have his dates confused. VH didn't play any shows in 1983 except the South American tour and the US Festival. And they didn't tour Europe at all on either the Diver Down tour or the Fair Warning tour. The Monsters Of Rock show in England at the end of the 1984 tour featured both AC/DC and Motley Crue, which obviously couldn't have influenced the writing of Panama.

    Later in that same quote, Eddie does mention that he checked out AC/DC when they shared the bill in 1978 in Oakland, so maybe he just had his wires crossed a bit. Certainly understandable when you consider all the gigs VH has played in their career.

    That's kind of interesting. I was thinking the same thing as I was reading it too.

    What has AC/DC done for rock that was so important? Also Nirvana was influential, but only in a backwards way. Since Nirvana came out, rock has suffered. If Dave never left, VH would have been in the top three. Maybe even number one. They lost the "rock" edge a little with Sammy.

    Van Halen should rank above Nirvana and AC/DC at least... if not Jimmy H too. That puts 'em in the top 5. I'd like to see them be #1 too, but...

    I think aerosmith should be before kiss. I think you guys are wrong when you say van halen should be before ac/dc. Because of one reason, back in black. I personally think back in black kicks ass over any album van halen put out. I like van halen way more than ac/dc,but, because of back in black i cannot put van halen ahead of ac/dc
