    #7 Queen

    No judgement, but I’m kinda surprised @GrundleStiltzkin and @YellowSnow voted for Van Halen.

    I like Queen fine and they had some great songs, but they just don't do it for me in the way the Diamond Dave era VH does. I've played the shit out of all of the first 6 VH records to the point of wearing out the grooves figuratively speaking, of course (my TT is set up perfectly with a tracking force of 1.75 grams).
    El oh el.

    If this had been between Queen and Diamond Dave's Van Heflin, I'd have trouble choosing. But, in the end, Queen never hired fucking Sammy Hagar.

    I get the Van Hagar hate but Sammy had a great solo career in the 70's and made my final play list with three songs

    And one of the best ever Live from Darryl's Place

    Queen is meh. I remember when they came out and a friend was raving about them. I pointed out that they were nothing special

    Nothing in Sammy's solo career comes close to being as good as Rock Candy. He's better when somebody else writes his material.

    Hagar got better when he joined Van Heflin. Van Heflin got worse when he joined them.

    Never really liked Queen as a kid. We'd go to Europe and see their concert poasters plastered all over the place, and I could never figure it out. I like Queen more the older I get, same with Bob Seger.

    Bob Seger is an underrated genius.

    Wow - the gayme is tied up 20-20 with less than 24 hours to go. So far, I've only had to use my tie breaking skillz once which is a good thing.

    I like Queen, but their greatest hits album does not come close to how comprehensive Van Halen's is from the DLR years. A lot of people in here need some perspective.

    All this Queen love just tells me there is a disproportionate number of closeted fags on HH.

    Butt rock is what frat boys listen to while munching on their gookie cookie. It's the height of closeted poofery. HTH.

    I was born long after Mercury died and Queen is just better. Die

    You were born long after 1991? Are you like 12?

    Classick rock radio overplayed VH for many years and I started to hate some of their songs, but they were pretty influential and have some rocking tunes. Queen screwed around with operas and weird new wave styles too much. Plus they aren't Americans.

    Poles are closed. Queen pulls away late in the 4th to win 25-21.
