I recognize they have hits that aren’t my taste… and even a few classics like running with the devil, are hard not to love

Vocally Van Halen was weak. Obviously, Eddie was an excellent guitarist and combine that with DLR stage presence that sold the classic rock group. Not a big fan after all doing a “cover” the Kinks “You really got me” was their ticket to stardom. An argument could be made that it was better than the original due to EV’s guitar work.

On the subject of covers being equal or better than the original..
