Van Halen is the self-titled debut studio album by American hard rock band Van Halen. Released on February 10, 1978, the album peaked at on the Billboard 200. The album became widely recognized as the band's popularity grew, selling more than 10 million copies in the United States by August 7, 1996 and being certified Diamond
Covers the same timeframe as ‘Van Halen Rising’, the biography by Greg Renoff, this could be thought of as a video companion to that book. Despite the fact that it’s unofficial (there’s no Van Halen music within), it’s excellent, and about as good as a documentary could possibly be without the band’s involvement. There’s also some footage of never-seen interviews with David Lee Roth & Eddie Van Halen, and vintage audio interviews with Alex Van Halen, Michael Anthony, and Gene Simmons. Rare photos were seen for the first time from Mark Stone, Tom Broderick, Gregg Emerson, Eddie Anderson, Norman Seeff (who took lots of amazing shots taken from the Woman and Children First album cover sessions), and more. No doubt that thousands of our regular visitors have already seen this, but we’re sure thousands haven’t.
Van Halen, David Lee Roth - er.
Widely known as 1984, Van Halen’s best-selling album of all-time MCMLXXXIV became famous not only for having hit singles, such as Jump, Panama, and Hot For Teacher, but also for having one of the best album covers in history. Released on January 9, 1984, the album’s cover that featured a blue-eyed devil/cherub/angel boy with a pack of smoke and wings is now a classic painting. Scroll down for videos. This classic masterpiece was created by an artist named Margo Nahas. Originally, the band asked Margo to create a painting of four dancing ladies for the cover.

The Mighty Van Halen. A handful of rock bands have made so huge an impact that they literally changed the music world. Count Van Halen among them. Van Halen’s classic lineup consisted of some of the most iconic figures in rock history. The band is centered around the Van Halen brothers–Alex on drums and Eddie on guitar–who are both phenomenal musicians. Michael Anthony was on bass. David Lee Roth was the front man from the early days until he left in 1985 to pursue a solo career. At that point, ex-Montrose front man Sammy Hagar gave up his own successful solo career to join the group. As a band, Van Halen has endured many ups and down, and their sound has changed quite a bit over the decades
40 years later, Van Halen is still just as impressive as the first time that I heard it. Jed Gottlieb: It’s impossible to say with any certainty what the best Roth Van Halen album is. Sometimes I think even A Different Kind of Truth is their best (although I never think Diver Down is. Christopher: The easiest argument would be if the Kinks hadn’t done it, Van Halen’s version would never exist. By early 1979, Joe Jackson and Joy Division had arrived. It took a few more years (and the birth of MTV) to make it official, but the ‘70s were already over. Gallucci: You can certainly make a case for it.
