Van Halen's sixth studio album, "1984," was released in 1984 and is considered a classic of the 1980s rock era. The album features some of the band's most popular songs, including "Jump," "Panama," and "Hot for Teacher," and was the last to feature original lead singer David Lee Roth before he left the band. The album's sound is characterized by its use of synthesizers and keyboards, which was a departure from the band's earlier guitar-driven sound. "1984" was a commercial success, reaching #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and going on to sell over 10 million copies in the US alone. It remains one of Van Halen's most popular and influential albums.
