    Default Hagar/VH references on Sitcoms

    Has anyone noticed how many Sammy Hagar and Van Halen references there have been on sitcoms over the years? Sammy was mentioned on the show "How I Met Your Mother" a couple times this week and has been mentioned on SNL a few times as well over the years. Van Halen has been referenced many times on the shows "King of Queens", "Yes Dear", and Drew Carey". Discuss!!

    Mentioned on Newsradio where Jimmy is trying to get a date with a teacher. There was a Dr. Van Halen paged in the background on an episode of Melrose Place.
    5150 as a term has been mentiioned on Seinfeld (where Uncle Leo is trying to steal a book) and was in a very early episode of ChiPs. Obviously the ChiPs reference has nothing to do with Van Halen, but it is still cool to hear it.
    Van Halen shows attended:
    08/21/91, 06/29/93
    08/02/93, 04/22/95
    07/18/95, 05/17/98
    07/25/98, 07/02/04
    11/11/04, 10/10/07
    03/09/12, 03/30/12

    David Lee Roth shows attended:
    07/24/91, 05/29/02 - opening night
    09/06/03

    Sammy Hagar shows:
    07/19/97, 06/04/99
    01/05/01, 09/09/01
    05/29/02 - opening night
    07/23/03, 07/04/06

    My favorite one was on "The King of Queens" episode where Carrie gets their friends Deacon and Kelly back together after being separated for a few years.
    Carrie comes in to the house and tells Doug the good news.

    Carrie-" I did it, I got them back together"

    Doug-"Who? Van Halen?

    There a few mentions on "My Name is Earl" from a while back.
    There was a tongue in cheek comment about how Sammy was the real Van Halen (to earl's disgust). And later about "who's Van Halen was better."
    I've also caught bottles of Cabo in scenes of various shows.

    I love Seinfeld, so when the Uncle Leo stealing leads to the "5150" comment, that's sweet. Also, in King of Queens, Carrie's all whored out for something and Doug says she looks like a groupie for Van Halen. Also in Doug's apartment when he was single, there's a Panama poster on the wall by the door. I have more, but that's enough for now.

    Wasn't it on King of Queens (I never watched the show regularly) when there was flashback of when he was single and he was a bouncer wearing a VH shirt? I still like The Simpsons reference when somoene (Willie Nelson) said he brought VH back together at the Grammy's and they were sitting several seats apart w/their heads facing away.

    It's very obscure, but on Adult Swim's "Squidbillies" there's a character under the moniker of Dan Halen. Obviously the reference is very clear.

    Also, gotta love the Simpsons' "Well I've also been trying to reunite Van Halen with Sammy Hagar" line, which then had Sam in one section of seats and Mike, Al, and Ed on the other side. After they look at each other, they just turn away. That may be my favorite VH reference, because of the visual behind it.

    Or Family Guy's "family history" episode, where Peter was of African descent carrying a bongo drum around and said "I'm off to learn the drum part to 'Hot For Teacher'" or something along those lines.
    "I respect that youre passionate about this but what your saying is complete idiocy..." - MF5150 on McDonald's "preying" on young kids.

    "He was born a human, he's a horse's ass by proxy." - It's Mike on Eddymon.

    I remember years ago an episode of 21 Jump Street where Hanson was undercover in a school and was telling some of the students how cool VH were.

    Haha I caught the Sammy reference on HIMYM on Monday as well!

    I just catch a VH reference in the Big Bang Theory. The Trivial Pursuit question was something like "Sammy Hagar replaced David Lee Roth in what group?" Neither of the nerds got it because they know nothing about pop culture.

    Do you remember a show called "Emergency" (I think that is the name) - anyway, I remember just after 5150 came out there was an re-run of this show and they were responding to a "5150" - I of course when "hey, van halen!" and my family didnt understand what I was talking about.

    Cheech and Chong..I dont remember which movie...has the licences plate ou812 way before VH used that as an album title...love that title!

    Anyway, this is all probably stuff any VH fan knows.

    I also remember an episode of Family Ties (yes, i'm an old fart) with a dream sequence about a van halen related thing, but dont remember that well...sorry
    Yes

    That was on the back of that red Ferrari in Cheech & Chong's Next Movie. Ya gotta be quick to notice it.

    In their first movie, Up In Smoke, Cheech's license plate read Muffdvr.

    Yeah that was funny. They invited them all to the show and sat them together hoping for a reunion. The brothers and Mike sat together and sammy sat across the aisle and they turned their heads away from each other.

    On the show GLEE two weeks ago they mentioned Van Halen.

    From one character to another:

    "You know everyone told Van Halen to give it up when David Lee Roth quit, but then they got Sammy Hagar and went on to record Right Now, one of their biggest hits".

    It was a surprise.
    [B]
    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"
