1 Here's another vote for 1984. Keyboards and synths, huh...what were they thinking? They stood out nicely from the keyboard/synth crowd that actually started during the previous decade. Great band up until then. Further boned down the road with "Right Now," and so forth. -- Submitted By: () on November 19, 2013, 9:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Another band killed, sorry I mean BONED since they insisted on continuing, by swelled heads and overbearing synthesizer tracks in the 80s. Go figure. It started with "Jump" and "I'll Wait", but the boning wasn't complete until DLR's departure. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 25, 2012, 4:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I have to agree with the large number of voters who have said they officially unboned with their new CD, A Different Kind of Truth. I bought it as soon as it was released and have listened to it enough now to realize that Van Halen is officially back. I don't think they boned with Sammy Hagar because they put out some great stuff with him and they were able to take some of the classic tunes and adapt them to Sammy and took some old Sammy tunes and ramped them up to become Van Halen songs. Poor Gary Cherone tried his best and that one album with him sounded good enough. I just don't think that Eddie had long term plans with him. I'm just glad they patched things up with Dave, I just don't know know why they had to boot Michael Anthony. It was likely due to his association with Sammy. Anyway, if you don't have the new CD, get it. Van Halen is now unboned. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on May 21, 2012, 11:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Yeah, boned it with VHIII/Cherone, but back again with "A Different Kind of Truth." I'm amazed they're still this good after all this time. Eddie and Alex are on fire again--never better. Wolf is a fine bassist. David Lee brings it and still has it. The only that sucks here is the mastering with a very muddy, overcompressed sound--bring back Ted Templeton for that old VH sound. Most longtime VH fans will be very pleasantly surprised by this album, even if they miss Michael Anthony's high backing vocals. -- Submitted By: (hamjor) on February 27, 2012, 9:05 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 They first boned with Gary Cherone, then again by replacing Michael Anthony with Wolfgang without even having the decency of informing Michael first. With Michael you get wicked bass solos and multiple bottles of Jack Daniels being downed. With Wolfgang you get a kid on stage playing alongside his father. Even though they have boned they still rock. Having Dave back is great. The new stuff looks and sounds like the Van Halen of old. Yes, they are all older and they show it but the guys all still sound good. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on January 17, 2012, 1:56 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I'm going to have to agree with Kingbk and Pelirojo on this one. I,too, heard it awhile back on the radio. I'll admit, at first it sounds like vintage Van Halen but then the lyrics come out and completely ruins the whole song. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on January 15, 2012, 9:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 kingbk, I heard it,too, and was somewhat disappointed. It sounded as though it could have been recorded in the early 1980's. I'm VERY nostalgic for 1980's music but one of the most appealing aspects of Van Halen was how INNOVATIVE they were during their prime combining many genres and styles to get the perfect 'storm' - and now they seem to have been stuck in the same safe[profitable] rut for 25 years. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 14, 2012, 4:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I heard their new song "Tattoo." It's a good song but the group seems to be stuck in the 80s! -- Submitted By: (JayD) on January 13, 2012, 10:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Band reunions never work. This is no exception. They spun Tattoo this morning on the rock radio station and I couldn't help but cringe. David Lee Roth now sounds like Bob Barker if Bob sung. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 12, 2012, 5:24 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I heard their new song "Tattoo" the other day.. i have to say it's not bad.. maybe i'll catch them when they play in my city in June -- Submitted By: () on January 12, 2012, 10:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Roth's come back and he and the Van Halens seem to believe that they can't function without each other. However; can anyone think of ANY new songs they've done since Hagar's departure? It just doesn't seem as though they are trying that hard to be innovative anymore. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 14, 2011, 7:48 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Definitely boned with the departure of Roth. I can't believe he made it to 57. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 10, 2011, 9:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Van Halen ripped out the bones, the guts, the eyes and the tail of a 20-foot marlin in 1985, and we all know why. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 20, 2011, 3:33 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Van Halen BTF when their pirate leader left (or was fired, depending on which interview with Ed you read back in the day). I was a Sammy fan way before he stepped in to try and fill Dave's shoes. But face it - it ain't Van Halen without David Lee Roth! Sammy may bring the party, but Dave IS the party! -- Submitted By: (JAFO) on January 7, 2011, 7:51 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

16 Van Halen boned when they went from "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love" to singing "Why Can't this be Love?" -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 9, 2010, 2:15 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
17 I agree. For my money, Van Halen ceased to exist the day 'Diamond Dave' Quit/Got fired. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on February 12, 2010, 4:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I only liked this group during the David Lee Roth era in the 80s, so I can't speak on the earlier incarnation of the group. All I know is that after DLR departed, I have not heard another song from them that I liked. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 11, 2010, 12:05 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Getting rid of Michael Anthony is a joke and an insult. Don't even give me the whole "the band is called Van Halen" yeah - before that is was called Mammoth. Michael was there with them on EVERY hit - EVERY concert - EVERYTHING. How many hits have they had with his son? Just as I thought. The kid is good, I'll give you that - but front him in his own group. After all - he is as old as Ed was when he and Alex started. Far as I am concern - Van Halen can suck it now - Dave or no Dave - it's never going to be Van Halen without all four ORIGINAL members. Go Chickenfoot!!! -- Submitted By: (JenniferEdwardsHart) on November 18, 2009, 9:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 DLR being replace by Hagar, who let The VH Brothers take 100% control of the band, killed the band. Van Halen went from kick@ss, fun loving, tongue-in-cheek, hard-rock party band to a semi-pretentious, power ballad singing, Eddie ego-stroking, glam-rock band. -- Submitted By: (Jon_Dohnson) on May 21, 2009, 6:46 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
