    Not unbelievable to me! Van Halen I is the greatest guitar album of all-time, IMO. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    I lost track of Spin in the late 80's...If Van Halen 1 is the middle of the list, I'd like to see the other selections...

    Was this like an "all-time best" list?

    You would have to read the shit to get it..

    Next time you are at the newstand just flick through to see what it is...
    The spin 20 refers to not just albums but anything from music to fashion to the latest movies and t.v.
    It's meant to reflect what the editors of spin classify as "cool" for that particular month.
    Spin tend to think that they have their finger on the pulse of popular culture.I just thought that the fact that they mentioned Van Halen in their mag was a key that the general press would really like to see VH reunite with Dave.
    Bigger than the Stones, bigger than the boy bands, bigger than mutha fuckin Britney Spears!!! [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]
