I guess I'd go with original Van Halen since it has all the cool instrumental parts that make up the extent of my enjoyment of the group: the drum intro to Hot for Teacher, Spanish Fly, Cathedral, and to a lesser extent Eruption.

Cathedral
That could've been the foundation for a really cool ambient drone record.

Yeah, I got to say Hagar. He's the better singer and the better frontman. The stuff from the Hagar era was just better all around. With Roth they sounded more like a bunch of college guys playing at a kegger, with Hagar they sounded like a real band that had grown up and improved.

With Roth they sounded like a fun rock band. With Hagar they sounded like bog standard cheesy 80s dad rock.

With Roth they sounded like a bunch of little kids, with Hagar they had grown up musically, and sounded much better. It was an actual growth, Roth's return sounds more like a devolution. Everything seemed to improve, the vocals actually rocked, instead of Roth's cheezy bragging, and Eddie's guitar actually sounded more complex and rythmic.
Hagar is a rock singer, while I must agree with Eddie when he basically called Roth a dance singer.

Compromise: They were exciting albeit annoying kids with Roth who turned into boring old farts with Hagar in the name of forced maturity.

Van Halen, Runnin' with the Devil is one of the greatest songs ever. I hated Sammy.

It really is a bad ass thrilling song. I love it from the first note.
