In this paper we investigate the existence of infinitely many homoclinic solutions for the following damped vibration problems \begin{eqnarray} \ddot q+A \dot q-L(t)q+W_q(t,q)=0, \end{eqnarray} where $A$ is an antisymmetric constant matrix, $L\in C(R,R^{n^2})$ is a symmetric and positive definite matrix for all $t\in R$, $W\in C^1(R\times R^n,R)$. The novelty of this paper is that, for the case that $W$ is subquadratic at infinity, we establish two new criteria to guarantee the existence of infinitely many homoclinic solutions for (DS) via the genus properties in critical point theory. Recent results in the literature are generalized and significantly improved.
