Van Halen’s third album, Women and Children First, was released in 1980 and cemented the band’s status as one of the biggest hard rock acts in the world. The album is a raucous and energetic affair, with Eddie Van Halen’s innovative guitar playing and David Lee Roth’s charismatic vocals at the forefront.

The album opens with the title track, a hard-charging rocker with a catchy chorus. Other highlights include the bluesy “And the Cradle Will Rock…”, the funky “Fools”, the heavy metal anthem “Loss of Control”, and the acoustic ballad “In a Simple Rhyme”.

Women and Children First is a more diverse album than its predecessors, with the band experimenting with different sounds and styles. However, the album remains cohesive thanks to the band’s strong songwriting and Eddie Van Halen’s signature guitar playing.

The album was a critical and commercial success, reaching number six on the Billboard 200 chart. It also spawned three hit singles: “And the Cradle Will Rock…”, “Women and Children First”, and “Loss of Control”.

Women and Children First is an essential album for any fan of hard rock or heavy metal. It is a classic album that features some of Van Halen’s best songs.
