Hours of Fun-Filled Facts & Trivia Questions - Special Launch Price
Van Halen is an American band known for bringing hard rock back into the spotlight in the late 1970s. As the disco craze took over the face of music during this time, Van Halen went a different direction and thrust a regenerated form of heavy metal rock to the forefront of popular culture. Previous bands had produced talented lead guitarists and begun to remake the classic rock of the '60s, but Van Halen transformed the genre by adding new wave and punk rock influences to traditional tones.
The end result cleared the path for a new generation of metal and hard rock. In particular, the graceful and technically unparalleled guitar playing of Eddie Van Halen had a seismic impact on the world of rock, causing it to transcend beyond its known sub-genres at that time. The strutting hair rock of M tley Cr e, the shredding of Joe Satriani, and the sonic attack of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal would all have been impossible without Van Halen.
But more than anything else, Van Halen was just a fun band. Songs like "Jump" and "Runnin' with the Devil" could make even the most awkward people tap along to their irresistible beat. Van Halen also stood out as a tremendously dynamic and wild live act. Their shows had to be seen to be believed. All in all, Van Halen's rise to fame was nothing short of legendary.
