    Everybody Wants Some!!, Romeo Delight and In A Simple Rhyme are all-time top 10 VH tunes for me. There is not a bad song on WACF.

    Ayuh, WACF was mostly overlooked in SoCal.

    BiB was a juggernaut. Everybody was playing it. Heck, everybody STILL plays it.

    Yep. Diver Down got a ton more airplay than WACF and FW combined.

    BIB is easily one of the most legendary and timeless albums in rock & roll history.

    I prefer WACF because it's VH, yet it's in my bottom three for studio releases from their entire catalog.

    Having said that, BIB is a FAR more important and popular record in terms of rock history and appeal. They hit a grand slam home run with it, and it's easy to see & hear why.

    Heres why BIB stands out for me. Obviously its iconic, monster hits off there that are stilled played in movies and TV to this day, hell you can here multiple songs off that album during every sporting event

    That album hit and was incredibly good, why is it remarkable? Its the first outing with a new singer following a legend

    They didnt just deliver a great album, they delivered a legend

    Forget "Back in Black"... there are literally ZERO records I would rank over Fair Warning and WACF

    I was like that in my teens and twenties, until I realized what a great band they were.
    Brian Johnson era for me, all the way, although I do like select tracks from the prior group.

    I personally prefer WACF but objectivity, we are comparing a more obscure VH album (at least compared to 1984, VH1, etc.) to AC/DC's biggest selling album.

    Brian Jones? Are we talking about AC/DC or the Rolling Stones?

    Van Halen "Women and Children First", followed closely by ABBA's "Super Trouper" album...



    Never been an AC/DC fan... Probably from being inundated with "Back in Black" in the locker room before pretty much every high school/college football game I ever played.

    I prefer the 1st Iron Maiden album from 80 over Back in Black as well...

    Feel free to flame me... I don't care

    Back in Black, no contest.

    I love WACF, its got some of my favorite Van Halen songs on it. To say its better than a nearly perfect album is just not accurate, for me at least.

    There are seven songs I regularly listen to from BIB. There are maybe two or three from WACF.

    That's pretty much, or very similar to how I would put it as well. Good call.

    I did pick WACF because it's VH, yet I don't listen to it dry often, and certainly not from start to finish. BIB is , as you and others have said, pretty flawless.
