VAN HALEN STUDIO ALBUMS

Just about every song on Van Halen’s debut album would become not only classic Van Halen songs but also define the sound of classic rock at the end of the 1970s.

Van Halen II

Released March 23, 1979

Van Halen’s second album proved that their debut album was no fluke. The band came out of the gate swinging hard with an intense version of the classic Linda Ronstadt tune “Your No Good.” That was just the beginning. Songs like “Somebody Get Me A Doctor,” “D.O.A.”  and so many more would turn the rock and roll world upside down as the most exciting new rock band in years would take a big swing at the emerging popularity of punk and new wave at the end of the decade.
