Van Halen's original line-up blows Pistols 'n' Posies out of the water. Musically G 'n' R aren't bad but Axl's voice instantly grates on my nerves. It's absolutely horrid. Plus it doesn't help that Axl's a bigger ass than David Lee Roth ever thought of being.

Lets just say if Van Halen makes a new record I would most likely go and get that, I will never ever touch a new Guns n Roses album. Absolutely hate the band since Slash left. Been far from the same. That and I hate Axl Rose with a passion now.
I would also agree the quality of many of Van Halens early releases may eclipse Appetite but not by much. Appetite was a great record.

Van Halen easily has more material even with the Hagar and Roth eras by themselves than GNR has that I like. Go to go Van Halen...

I really liked Van Halen in the Roth era. The Gunners though wrote some explosive, edgy, really angry, dark material which appealled to me more. Voted for them instead. And yes, Rose is a jerk.

hey guys a disclaimer - :oyea:
van halen is what the mind said and i voted for them but in my heart despite their serious goof up's The band i'd pick anyday between these two would be GNR
why ? - 'sweet child o' mine ' is not just one but The reason i can forgive all their wild rides and still be loyal to them.....(but letting slash go - never !!!)

:mad
the fight begins (pls - dont let emotions flare up, this is just some random info and some of it is seriously baised - so read/enjoy/fret but forget.....ok here we go...........)

reasoning -
a) no of crew GNR 22 VH 8
round 1 to van halen as the body was intact more or less
b) no of albums 6 12
round 2 to van halen as the they produced twice the number
c) age of the band 26 yrs 37 yrs
round 3 to van halen due age/experience
d) universal appeal
round to gnr due to better fame/recognition internationally
(i have traveled extensively in my career and almost everybody who was
even remotely into english music knew gnr, music buffs heard of both of
course)
e) haunting number / most recognized anthem
round to gnr for 'sweet child o mine'
f) awards won 10 nos 6 nos
round to gnr as they won more in a shorter span

:bonk:
tie - so we have the sudden death now
gnr-slash = sacrilage !!!!!
van halen - roth = still van halen ...........

so we have the winner - van halen !!!!!!!!!!! :omg:

never knew i was good at worthless and meaningless analysis.....:bow:


but then i never knew that this wonderful forum turns nuts into coconuts !!!!!! :wa
