Friday Morning Videos: "Panama" and "Right Now" (Special Choose Your Favorite Edition!)

If we're talking loud music from the height of the Friday Night Videos era, Van Halen is, of course, unavoidable. And who would want to avoid them, anyway? The only question, then, is...which Van Halen? The pulsing, bluesy, outrageous, we're-just-doing-this-to-get-laid sound of David Lee Roth?

Or the driving, sharp, ponderous, screaming-at-people-to-pay-attention sound of Sammy Hagar?

They both have their appeal, obviously. But for their hard-core fans, I'm not sure it matters much.
