    I always liked Diver Down. As others have mentioned, it's very distinctive. Pictures of "the band" are a dime a dozen.
    That said, VH1 is my next fave.
    Then 1984 and Fair Warning.

    I gave away my record albums years and years ago, so I honestly can't remember VHII or WACF off the top of my head. One was blue and one was green... Anyway, point being if I can't remember them, they aren't that great! For the Sammy era I thought Balance was disturbing. Second to last before III.

    Easily VH's best album cover …

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    I disagree.

    WACF was THE coolest cover, both front & back.
    It captures the essence of CVH, right on the cusp of domination.

    I'm confused why people are picking 5150?

    Here's a greased, body builder with green, marble backing.

    OU812 gets dinged for lack of originality. It's a Meet the Beatles rip off, and on top of that, they had already done it in publicity shoots with DLR.

    Hell, they even did the three high, one low like the Beatles. And maybe by accident, but they stuck Mike low like the Beatles did Ringo. It's a shitty cover the more I think about it.

    Reading about the Beatles, fuck, you simply forget.

    When the only thing that knocks your album out of the #1 spot is...your next album, you know it's going good for your band.
