Who was better in their prime? This is a tough one for me as these were two of my faves growing up.

Van Halen. AC/DC is fun, but there's just more going on in Van Halen's songs, and I can actually tell their albums apart.

They're pretty close on a song-to-song basis - if I made a CD of my favorite songs from each band I'd probably listen to them about equally. I prefer Bon Scott to David Lee Roth - who I like for his swagger and sense of humor, but have always found a bit cloying - and the blue-collar feel of AC/DC to the glitzier Van Halen. Having said all that, Eddie Van Halen is the most talented rock guitarist of the era and his playing on those early albums puts the group on a higher plane in my opinion.

I like both, but prefer AC/DC.
