    Default GW: 50 Greatest Van Halen songs -- what do you think?

    Guitar World has released a list of the 50 greatest Van Halen songs, and I'm interested in what everyone thinks of their selections..?

    Particularly of their Top 10..?

    After "A Different Kind of Truth," I had to go back to drawing board with figuring out (my version of the) 10 greatest Van Halen songs ever... I write "10" because I have ADD and 50 is just way too many.

    What are your Top 10 Van Halen songs now that "Truth" has had time to settle in..? Did Guitar World get it right?

    I'm interested but I'm not forking out for a magazine just to look at a list of tracks based on some guys opinion. One persons stellar tracks could be another persons least liked. I think especially being as it's a guitar mag the focus is going to purely on Ed and there's more to a bands music than just one member.

    Boy! 50 Van Halen songs not listed in any one individuals proper order should cause a shit storm of bitching... especially ANY Sam song ranked higher than any Dave song. Simply can't wait. Woo Hoo!

    I cant wait to read that issue... Not sure why GW used a Fender Franky for the centrefold... Thats definitely not the original.
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Did Guitar World sample the world? Or is this a couple of music geeks sitting in a back room smoking one while picking songs out a hat? Translation: Meaningless.
