Van Halen was a game-changing band in so many ways, from strictly their epic live performances to birthing one of the biggest guitar gods ever.

With that being said, it’s no wonder there are countless Van Halen items scattered all over the internet ranging from fan-made originals to licensed guitar gear.

In honor of Pasadena, California’s favorite sons, here are 14 Van Halen items everybody wants.

  • 'Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal'

    Published in 2015, Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal is, perhaps, the quintessential book on the early history of Van Halen. Written by Greg Renoff, Van Halen Rising features 230 new interviews including former bassist Michael Anthony and Ted Templeman, who produced VH’s first five albums and 1991’s For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.

  • Van Halen Logo Pendant Necklace

    Van Halen has one of rock’s most iconic logos of all time. It looks good in nearly every form, but it really shines as this pendant necklace.

  • Van Halen Cookie Cutter

    Speaking of the VH logo looking good in nearly every form, this Van Halen cookie cutter makes VH logo almost too good to eat!

  • EVH Guitar Pick Tray

    What better way to store your guitar picks than in this guitar pick tray, which pays homage to Eddie Van Halen’s iconic Frankenstrat.

  • Van Halen Cornhole Boards

    For the Van Halen fan that loves to show their appreciation for the band even while playing friendly outdoor games, these custom cornhole boards are truly a must-have.

  • Van Halen 'Panama' 45 Clock

    Jump back! What’s the time? With this “Panama” clock, you’ll be able to know when the time is right to reach down between your legs and ease the seat back.

  • Eddie Van Halen Canvas

    The late EVH sure did have a knack for providing a striking image while expertly playing guitar as evident in this canvas, which comes in four sizes: 10″x7″; 16″x11″; 23″x16″; and 32″x22″.

  • 5150 Lamp

    A cool nod to the 5150 album and the recording studio, this LED lamp has four light settings (fade, flash, strobe and smooth) and shines in seven different colors (red, blue, white, green, light blue, pink, light green and purple.)

  • 'Everybody Wants Some' Wall Art

    And you’ll want some, too! (The “some” in this instance is this minimalist canvas that comes in six different sizes, so you’ll surely find the right size for your space.)

  • Van Halen 'Best of Both Worlds' Guitar Tab Songbook

    If you’re looking for Van Halen merch, it’s only a matter of time until we get to songbooks. This one features 33 songs covering the best of the David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar eras.

  • Dunlop EVH95 Eddie Van Halen Signature Wah Guitar Effects Pedal

    You can’t talk Van Halen merch without touching on some guitar gear, like this EVH95 Signature Crybaby Wah Pedal that Eddie Van Halen himself helped create.

  • MXR EVH Eddie Van Halen Phase 90

    The MXR EVH Phase 90 pedal will help in creating that recognizable guitar tone found on some of Van Halen’s early records.

  • EVH Wolfgang USA Edward Van Halen Signature Stealth Black

    Last but not least, not featuring an EVH guitar would make this list incomplete. This Wolfgang Signature model was crafted via Eddie Van Halen’s very precise specs, so this is likely a guitar lover’s dream.
