Re: Van Halen versus the Who!

That's a pretty tough call but track for track The Who have more good material.

Both are good, but The Who have more classic songs.

Exclamation Re: Van Halen versus the Who!

Van Halen I associate with idiot rock. It's therefore the Who by miles for me!

Re: Van Halen versus the Who!

Van Halen are very good musicians, but as songwriters, they're not in the same universe with Pete Townshend.

Exclamation Re: Van Halen versus the Who!

Van Halen seems to be completely outclassed in this one.

Exclamation Re: Van Halen versus the Who!

Given the popularity of the Who with CRF2 members, this one may warrant revisiting.

Van Halen








The Who
