I'm gonna say both. I started listening to VH when Sammy was just coming in, but I remember hearing Jump and was floored. So I have fond memories with both lead singers and I think there are certain songs I wouldn't want Dave singing that Sammy did.

Always have fond memories of David Lee Roth; the 1984 album was my first impression of the band. I remember going after the 5150 album and thinking Sammy was cooler 'cause he played guitar too.
I prefer Michael Anthony even without ever having heard whatever Wolfgang Van Halen does.

Sammy all the way!!!
Lee Roth was ok, but more of a poser.
Sammy had great, powerful vocals, and the right attitude.
One man, but the right man for the job!

If I'm picking for a singer today - I take Sammy. If I'm picking a time warp singer from boths best days - I take Roth. I never got to see Van Halen live. I did see VanHagar live at the Texas Jam (it was a big outdoor event held in the Cotton Bowl - bands all day and night). I was quite impressed. It was early on after the switch too when everyone was still kinda WTF?

This isnt even a question. If you want watered down guitar, medicore drums, sappy love song lyrics and generic keyboards, pick up any VH with Hagar as the front man. With the exception of the song "Humans Being" its weak.
Now..you want breakthrough signature guitar playing, ridiculous chops and overall drumming? Catchy head nod basslines? All with the cocky over sexed self assured swagger of a true rock n roll front man? Pick up ANY and I mean ANY Van Halen album with David Lee singing......catch a buzz, play loud and get in trouble

I'm going to have to go with David Lee Roth as well. I became a VH fan with the release of 1984, and loved his stage antics, his vocal stylings, and the overall feel of the band during that period. I also love DLR's solo material post-VH (especially Skyscraper).
But don't get me wrong....I'm also a big fan of Sammy VH.
Really though, in all honesty, to me it's almost like there were 2 different bands that happened to share the name "Van Halen".
