One thing I find odd on this forum are those critical of Van Hagar for being too poppy or for the ballads or keyboards or for whatever reason, but at the same time - these same people love some of the wimpiest, lamest, keyboard drenched pop pap melodic rock.

You would think given the other music they love, Van Hagar would be the ultimate melodic rock band - given the combination of Eddie Van Halen and Sammy Hagar.

Now sure if you loved the Roth era of Van Halen, then the Sammy era might be disappointing, however this particular forum has people who have no problem saying the more melodic rock/pop Howe era of Bad Company is far better than the classic rock Bad Co. style of Rodgers.

So it just seems that Van Hagar are held to some different standard than the many bands who changed their style in the mid to late 80's to a more commercial style and sound, which most people here seem to prefer - from Aerosmith to Whitesnake.

So for those that are critical of Van Hagar, but love melodic rock bands that are in many ways similar to Van Hagar or that are far more pop and keyboard focused or not as heavy - why do you hold Van Hagar to a different standard?

If you simply don't like the songs, then fair enough - but I think there is more to it than just that.
