Playlist of the week: Tribute to Eddie Van Halen

Last week we lost one of the most iconic figureheads in rock music to throat cancer at age 65: Eddie Van Halen. Van Halen led his eponymous band to great success and shaped the industry for years to come. Nobody could play the guitar in style quite like him.

Even if you don’t know Van Halen’s music, you definitely know the name. The band even got its own Guitar Hero game. So, in honor of the late Eddie Van Halen, here are some classic bangers from a true legend.
