    Default Van Halen Icon

    Ok so we had Aerosmith.
    We had Metallica.
    How do we come about getting Van Halen on MTV icon?

    Would this be a problem for the singer situation, being that most bands in my opinion would propably rock out to the classic stuff and make Sam get pissed off and show us why he is the Red Rocker.

    I'm just fed up with this shit, they haven't even gotten inducted in the hall of fame yet, why not at least honor them with MTV Icon.

    How do we come about getting Van Halen on MTV icon?

    I could personally care less. When I've started listening to VH, I've though they were an unknown American band since all they've been rollin' on TV here in Europe was Nirvana, Offspring and Michael Jackson.

    That would be cool!

    That would be cool if they were to be on MTV's "Icon". I only wish that they could have David, Sammy, and Gary all honored, just as long as DLR is sitting on the opposite end of the isle of Eddie and Sammy. I'm sure that they could find plenty of artists that would also perform the Sammy era of Van Halen.

    If you didn`t have a bunch of videos by directed by Wayne Isham, Spike Jonze or one of the ubiquitous (sp ?) hip hop guys, the MTV icon thing is not offered to you. Seems to me that it does not matter if you had videos in redonkulous rotation in the 80`s when MTV was in need of them or where you gave them more than they ever deserved because they behave like spoiled rich kids with house staff. Unless you remain an MTV ball licker you get nothing.

    This is of course untrue of Metallica because they are respected by MTV. They told the majority of thier fan base to go fuck themselves with a Class Action a few years ago. This made everyone in the entertainment marketing industry stand up and cheer. Not because the artist prevailed but because the industry was able to get an artist to take the fall for what has always been a fuck over for the artist anyway. The industry got to protect thier 9 or 10 bucks a disc on the backs of Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield`s 1-2 dollars a disc. Videos have always been a way to market the band. MTV uses them (when they aren`t showing beatiful social autistics living together scrubing each others nut sacks) to market the video channel. MTV has less than nothing to do with music and more to do with figuring out where to bury all that money. Making a video these days for a rock and roll band means either doing the same kind of crap that you`ve seen for years and begging MTV for once a month rotation, or staying home and beatin your dick like it owes you money.

    I hope that one day MTV gets done prison punk style by a dude named "Tinkergaloot".

    Screw MTV. If they did a VH icon, they would probably have Ashlee Simpson perform Runnin With the Devil and Ja Rule do Right Now.

    Oddly I can see Ja Rule doing that...MTV is horrible, only reason Metallica got on is cause theyre sell-outs now. VH would need to sell everything and make a stupid movie about them making a stupid album. I agree MTV shouldn't even mention VH.

    Wow !

    Being Canadian i never thought MTV blows that bad.

    We have Much Music over here and it ain't really as bad, although it's obviously not the same as the past years where Rock & Roll and Heavy Metal ruled the station.

    Two things:

    Didnt Janet Jackson have an 'icon'?
    and wasnt Van Halen considered "dead" by MTV? They were shown on some slide show along side vanilla ice and the like
