2 The singer can't sing more than one note

Plus, sometimes he screams like he's getting killed. That's not music. Also, his stage act is beyond ridiculous. - KoolGuy2218

Yeah, and people talking about how much money they have is music. - Songsta41

Rap is monotone. Rappers do not sing. Rap is "spoken word".

3 Eddie Van Halen is the most overrated guitarist ever

Do you play guitar? I seriously doubt it. The "guitarists" you mentioned as being good are at best average. Eddie on the other hand reinvented and revolutionized rock guitar. Do a little research. Listen to rock guitar before 1978 when VH'so first record was released and then listen to rock guitar after it came out. Literally everyone started to copy his techniques. Ed also changed the way guitars are built. He owns two patents for his inventions. Give credit where credit is due. Why is it that you even feel a need to comment on a subject you clearly know very little about? Here is another thing Eddie Van Halen has that you could learn a little about... He would never start a list like '10 reasons to hate (pick any musical artist) " He has class, clearly you do not.

He's not even half good. I listened to "Eruption". I tried hard to like it, but all I heard was a buncha notes. People say he's great for playing fast and doing the "two-handed tapping" or whatever. Have you EVER seen good guitarists like Kurt Cobain, Jack White, Justin Bieber, or Lil Wayne do this "technique"? NO! - KoolGuy2218

Whether you like him or not is one thing. But he is one of the most generally loved guitarists on the planet. That's a fact, you just can't argue. - Songsta41

4 They are the Hard Rock version of One Direction

Have you heard Unchained? That song is very heavy. The most metal Van Halen song.

No... one direction are the girl version of they

seriously morons, learn of history of music

5 All their songs are about partying and girls

You said on your idiotic rap versus metal list that rap is good because of these things.

7 They are posers

Why else do they have bubblegum pop songs? Think about it. - KoolGuy2218

8 No rapping

"How do you expect to sell a CD without rapping? "
Van Halen managed exactly that. As did every music artist, because rap isn't music at all. Which came first, rap or music?

9 They aren't popular

What I should say is that they aren't popular ANYMORE. People used to like them. Then they stopped liking them when they realized that they were stupid. It's called Human Evolution. - KoolGuy2218

10 All their albums sound the same V 1 Comment
