    Default Nerf Herder - Van Halen

    Ten Years Ago


    Did you know that Nerf Herder has never met or spoken with anyone from Van Halen, the band that inspired their mid-level hit from January of 1997? Itís true! The band did hear that Alex and Eddie Van Halen really liked the song, and the band was given permission to use theirs, and Michael Anthony and Valerie Bertinalliís images in their video for the song. David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar refused permision, Hagar going far enough as to call the band members "faggots." The video for "Van Halen" was added to regular rotation on MTV and was seen by anyone who was watching the channel at 3 in the morning. M2 played the hell out of the song. And the rest is history.

    I never knew there was a video for this song. I also never realized it was recorded so far into Sammy's tenure. I guess I just assumed it came out around the time of 5150 or thereabouts. Thanks for posting.
