Headline is extremely misleading... Sounds like VH charted at #84 or sumthin..#2 ain't bad for a band that hasn't recorded an album in 28 years. Grammy week put that fat Brit over the top but Grammy week is now over.. VH tour is just starting.. Debuting at #2 and then taking #1 looks less hype and more substance. LONG LIVE VH!

Who's the moron who wrote this story, Sammy Hagar? "Van Halen Doesn't Rock Charts" Bullshit. The sold 187,000 in first week out. That would have been good enough for #1 had it been a normal "non-grammy week". Mainstream pop music always does better than Hard Rock.#2 is a great amount, remember 1984 never hit #1 but still sold 10-million. There are no love songs on the album to fluff it up for mainstream and that's a good thing "Sammy Hagar". The Mighty Van Halen is back!
