5. Van Halen, 'A Different Kind of Truth'

Their massive reunion tour may have come in like a lion and gone out like a lamb, amid rumors of discord. (Van Halen not getting along? Say it ain't so!) However, A Different Kind of Truth sounded a lot like the vintage Van Halen that coaxed your best air-guitar moves, and with good reason: a majority of the album, the band freely admits, can be attributed to song ideas they'd been kicking around since way back in the mid-Seventies.
