Album Of The Day: Van Halen – 1984

The last Van Halen album with the legend that is David Lee Roth on it and also the first hard rock album to use synth’s as a lead instrument. Whether you think this is a good thing or not is a different debate. Jump is massively cheesy but Drop Dead Legs, Top Jimmy and Hot For Teacher are easily some of the best songs Van Halen wrote and are even up there with the best songs of the 80’s – right next to Kim Wilde’s Kids In America

Some weird people in the office think that this is an awful album but they are wrong. Very wrong.

Best song is Hot For Teacher just for the intro.

The full album can be found on Spotify here
