Diver Down is the fifth studio album by American hard rock band Van Halen, released on April 14, 1982. It spent 65 weeks on the album chart in the United States and had, by 1998, sold four million copies in the United States. It is their shortest album to date. The album cover artwork displays the "diver down" flag used in many US jurisdictions (which indicates a SCUBA diver is currently submerged in the area).
When Diver Down was released in April 1982, Warner Bros ran an advert with the words ‘Diver Down, Temperature Up’ above a photo of a busty waitress delivering the new ‘platter’ on – well – a platter. If only it had been that obvious. It was the fastest selling Van Halen album yet - it was the first album to sell one million copies before the tour. The album also helps the band set a record for most consecutive platinum-selling albums at Warner Brothers Records. The cover art, which is the international symbol to alert boats of a diver below the surface of the water, was chosen because the band had a message: though it may not be noticeable on the surface, there’s something going on underneath
Fair Warning was such a dark, intense record that Van Halen almost had no choice but to lighten up on their next album, and 1982's Diver Down is indeed much lighter than its predecessor. In many ways, it's a return to the early albums, heavy on covers and party anthems, but where those records were rough and exuberant - they felt like the work of the world's best bar band just made good, which is, of course, kind of what they were - this is undoubtedly the work of a finely honed band. who has only grown tighter and heavier since their debut
