    Ok, I decided I'd try and start a positive post regarding Van Halen. Hopefully this thread won't get turned into yet another bash fest.

    Most people have a favorite era of Van Halen. I want you to go to the other side and pick some of your favorite songs. I think even FORD has a couple of Hagar songs that he thought were pretty good.

    If you're a Dave fan, you gotta pick a Hagar song. If you're a Sam fan you have to pick a Dave song. If you like all eras of VH then you have to pick from your least favorite. If you just can't pick between the eras then pick a song off your least favorite album.

    I'll start:

    Finish What Ya Started
    Hot Summer Nights
    Poundcake

    There are probably more, but those are the ones that stick out in my mind right now.

    Have fun, but please no bashing here. If you want to bash you can find that in just about every other thread here.

    Since I like both Sammy and Dave-era Van Halen...

    Least favorite "era"?!

    Well... that's definitely the Gary-"era" for me.

    And from that era, I like Fire In The Hole, Without You and its Neworld intro.

    Since I love everything from the Dave and Sammy eras, I'll pick Gary songs:

    One I Want
    Fire In The Hole
    Without You
    That's Why I Love You

    Being a Dave fan, first and foremost, I'll have to pick a few from the Sammy-era (which I still am a fan of, but not nearly as much).

    GET UP
    BLACK 'N' BLUE
    CABO WABO
    PLEASURE DOME
    AFTERSHOCK
    TAKE ME BACK
    FEELIN'
    HUMANS BEING

    From the Gary-era, that's very hard, but I'd have to say:

    DIRTY WATER DOG
    JOSEPHINA
