The sixth full-length studio album by legendary American Hard Rock band.
The last Van Halen album until "A Different Kind Of Truth" (2012) to feature lead singer David Lee Roth, who left in 1985 following creative differences. As of 2019, this would be the final full-length album to feature all four original members (Van Halen brothers, Roth, and Michael Anthony). Roth would return in 2007, but Eddie's son Wolfgang would replace Anthony in 2006.
"1984" and debut album are Van Halen's bestselling albums, each having sold more than 10 million copies. Rolling Stone ranked the album number 81 on its list of the 100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s. It reached number two on the Billboard 200 album chart and remained there for five weeks, behind Michael Jackson's "Thriller" (on which guitarist Eddie Van Halen made a guest performance). The album was certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1999. The album was also included in the book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die". Guitar World Magazine placed the album on their list of "New Sensations: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1984".
