    Default 1982 – The Year In Van Halen History

    Pretty big VHND story...

    "This year marks the 30th anniversary of Diver Down, Van Halen’s fifth album. Some are quick to criticize the album because it contains several covers. However, Diver Down had moments that matched the brilliance of nearly anything the band has released, and 1982 was one of the most spectacular years in the band’s history..."

    I don't care what anyone else says. Diver Down is one of my favorite records. It was my second album purchased after 1984. It was a great summer that year of 1984, hot and dry, the smell of coppertone 24-7, I also saw the US Festival for the first time on TV so that was the only real live footage I had ever seen of VH at the time. I watched that VHS over and over. So many songs on there take me back to a great time in my life.

    My fav tracks in order:

    Secrets
    Little Guitars (Intro)
    Little Guitars
    Hang 'Em High
    The Full Bug
    Dancing in the Street
    Where Have All the Good Times Gone!
    Big Bad Bill
    Cathedral
    (Oh) Pretty Woman
    Dancing in the Street
    Happy Trails
    Intruder

    Diver Down has Hang em High and The Full Bug, which are 2 of VH's all time best in my opinion. They are better than everything on 1984 and ADKOT. With that said, ADKOT is better than Diver Down. Diver Down is...better than 1984....in my opinion...
    Right here I say....

    Not my favorite VH album from the Roth era but it still kicks a lot of ass.
