Van Halen released their self-titled debut studio album. Peaking at No.19 on the Billboard 200 the album went on to sell more than 10 million copies in the US. The album contains some of Van Halen’s most well-known songs, including ‘Runnin’ with the Devil’, ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ’bout Love’, ‘Jamie’s Cryin”, and their cover of The Kinks’ ‘You Really Got Me’. The 1 minute and 42 second Eddie Van Halen instrumental ‘Eruption’ featured on the album is considered one of the best electric guitar solos of all time and popularised the technique of two-handed tapping.
