Van Halen are one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 80 million records, charting the most number-one hits in the history of Billboard 's Mainstream Rock chart. Formed in Pasadena, California in 1972, they became a staple of the Los Angeles music scene during the mid-1970s, and upon its release, their self-titled first album was acclaimed as both a hard rock and heavy metal album, reaching No. 19 on the Billboard pop music charts; one of rock's most commercially successful debuts. Ranked 7th on VH1's list of the top 100 hard rock artists of all time, they are one of only five rock bands that have had two studio albums sell more than 10 million copies in the U.S. A string of multi-platinum albums followed in quick succession; 1979's Van Halen II, 1980's Women and Children First, 1981's Fair Warning and 1982's Diver Down, but it was their 6th studio album, 1984, that was the pinnacle of their commercial success. The album's lead single, "Jump", became an international hit and their only single to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
