These are my top 2 favorite bands of all time. Favorite songs are Unchained and Eruption/You Really Got Me
by VH

Heartbreaker and Black Dog by LZ

I saw their recent concert in May or April.

I want to hear from YOU.

love 'em or hate 'em?

(by the way i am in middle school and I am ridiculed for liking classic/80's rock and hating pop music so who's in my boat with me?)

I was a huge fan of Led Zeppelin. Not so much Van Halen, but I listened to them occasionally as well.

But that was back when I was a classicrock***. Now I'm an indehhiphawppostrawksludgemetawlscream0mathrawk***.

As for "Eruption" vs. "Stairway To Heaven," definitely the latter. I guess "Eruption" was technically innovative to the mainstream audience at the time or sum ****, but I don't like it. It's like Eddie Van Halen played it just to show off his skillz0rz or something. Besides, when it comes to tapping, I prefer it being used for riffs and ****. (For example, Minus the Bear does this extensively.)

I'm not quite a fanatic, but I do enjoy their music. I guess I like Led Zeppelin more, but yeah, Van Halen's stuff is great. Good to see someone else out there knows good music when they hear it.

I not a fanatic, but I do like quite a few of Led Zeppelin's tunes. On the other hand, I can't say I much of a thing for Van Halen.

Never had much contact with Van Halen except the occasional "Jump" song in the radio.

However I love Led Zeppelin. Their music is so characteristic and yet varied. Some songs I had to listen to a few times to fully appreciate them, and some were great from the beginning. And of course, Stairway To Heaven is an immortal classic...
