Madonna headlined the Super Bowl half-time, Ferris Bueller was in a Honda Commercial and Van Halen just released their latest album. And yet, it’s 2012. In all honesty, what can be written that hasn’t been written about one of the most influential hard rock bands of all time? Van Halen has sold over 80 million albums worldwide, is one of five rock bands to sell more than 10 million copies of not one but two albums in the US, and despite the influx of flavor-of-the-week pop bands and single song downloading, proudly holds the rank of most #1 hits on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.
Yes, it’s quite apparent that Van Halen reigns supreme over us all.
