    Default What is your fave year of VH?

    To me there are two years in Van Halen's history that stand out for me, one was being a young 7 year old when Van Halen ruled the land in 1984 and I was introduced to the band via radio and mtv.

    However, I didnt become a super fan until 1988 when OU812 did it for me.

    My fave year of VH would have to be 1991.

    This was when FUCK came out and VH rocked never harder with Sammy. They were all over mtv and were the best they ever were imo.

    Just wondering what your fave year of VH is???

    true 1984 was a HUGE HUGE year for Van Halen
    but i remember 1982 being a fun time to be a van halen fan.
    they seemed to dominate all those circus/creem polls... best live band, best band, best album, worst album, best guitarist, best singer, best drummer, best bassist, best album cover, worst album cover, etc etc etc.....

    I'm going to go out and be the only person to say 2007. I wasnt around in the 80s, and really wasnt introduced to the band till a few years ago. If I had seen them in the 80's, I'm sure I'd feel different.

    I would have to say 1984. It was the first time I saw them at age 11 and my second choice would be 2007 because my 10 year old son got to see them with me.

    1985, before the split with Dave.

    I borrowed a Diver Down LP from a friend. The tone of the guitar on those songs hooked me. I immediately started purchasing all the VH on vinyl that I could find and couldn't wait for the next album with Dave. I got my first guitar a few months later.

    Hard to pick one year...I'd have to say I liked all years, EXCEPT the ones with Gary Cherone.

    I loved 1991 too.


    Then again, I love them all, even the ones with Gary.

    Let's see, 1978. No, 1979! No, wait! 1980. Oh hell, as long as it ain't III its all good, but I'll always prefer 78-84. Something to be said for my 15 year old seeing 3/4 of the original band too though!

    I'd say 1986. The band seemed at it's happiest.

    Hard to say exactly which year was my favorite. 1978 they were on the tip of everybody's tongue when their debut was released. They were like a breath of fresh air back then, considering rock was stagnating somewhat. By '81, they were smokin' hot in concert. '82 was the fun year when, as someone else said, they dominated every category and played sold out shows everywhere. By '84, they were burned out from the road and making MTV videos, although did manage to catch them on a good night on a two night stint that year. I'll go with 1982 here.

    In 1981 Fair Warning was released. 'Nuff said.

    But performance-wise, VH has never topped '91 to '93. The peak of their live prowess, by a long shot.
