    Default Van Halen Terminology

    As some of you know, I am a "n00b" to this board and have had most of my threads shut down. So I figured I would start one where people could answer my questions about some Van Halen terms that I have seen thrown around here that I do not understand.

    1) Wear a Cup, He better be wearing a cup, etc.

    2) "Rothtard"

    3) ARMBI

    4) Ronald McDonald

    5) The "Army"

    6) Any other terms that you think I should know as I get acquainted with the site.

    What Ed said above Dave after the 1996 MTV Music Awards fiasco where Dave was annoyed Ed kept bringing up his impending hip surgery.

    2) "Rothtard"
    To me it means someone who only likes the Dave years and takes pride in shitting on anything else the band did without him.

    3) ARMBI
    A long-standing forum joke where every little morsel of news during the dead years was a trigger that something was gonna happen with the band hence...A Reunion Music Be Imminent...ARMBI. (of course nothing ever happened)

    4) Ronald McDonald
    A stupid nickname for Sam...created by Rothtards.

    5) The "Army"
    A Dave-only VH site...rotharmy.com

    6) Any other terms that you think I should know as I get acquainted with the site.
    Yes...SPT.

    Figure that one out...you can do it.

    1- Edward threatened to kick Dave in the balls repeatedly in 96
    2-Sammy lovers use this affectionate term for Dave lovers
    3- some gay term
    4-Sam's choice of dress and hair.
    5-Another forum that only accepts Dave as the singer (better forum)
    6- You already knew this, you were just trying to start shit with the morons. Nobody falls for this kind of bait.

    1) From the infamous Eddie and Alex CNN interview. Eddie was telling the story of having a confrontation with Roth at the '96 MTV awards and said something to the effect of, "If he ever talks to me like that again, he'd better be wearing a cup!"

    2) Should be self-explanatory, but any DLR fan whose allegiances to others sways depending on what Roth is doing. For example, a Rothtard now will go out of his way to demonize Michael Anthony because Roth isn't his band-mate anymore. When DLR is out of VH, Eddie is the devil. That sort of thing.

    3) A Reunion Must Be Imminent. Over the past decade or so, we (at this site) would find any shred of evidence that Eddie was active with, well, take your pick of singers, and we'd lay claim that ARMBI. We were wrong a lot.

    4) A Rothtard's description of Sammy Hagar, I suspect. One of the kinder monikers, too.

    5) A message board site dedicated to David Lee Roth

    6) Mike's a Class Act is a perennial favorite. Sammy should STFU is well used, too. So much so, that we've developed new ways to tell Sammy to shut his pie hole. "Sell Tacos For Us" is one of my favorites. One more - CWAD. I'm still hoping this catches on. It means "Cafe Wah Asian Dude." The definition - someone who's annoyingly enthusiastic.

    Ok. Brett, thanks for the answers. I can't believe Eddie said that to Dave lol. Amazing how time can change things. Also I think that ARMBI acronym is hilarious. There should be a sticky of all the VHLinks memes. Some of the stuff you guys come up with is fucking epic.

    Ok please close if you need to. I will return back to my browsing.

    Its honestly overwhelming coming in here, there's so many awesome debates and jokes about one of the best bands ever. I am having an absolute blast reading through all the threads and stuff, but I feel like I'm trying to learn a new language just to figure out what is going on half the time.

    STFU is another good one to know. It's usually directed toward Sam, but it is a Joke now, So STFU.

    Now I see why the threads aren't able to stay open. To me it's all fresh and hilarious but to other people it's just the same people getting into the same shitstorms as years gone past. Had no idea the site was 13 years old.

    Yes 13 years is a long time. Think about this...this is the first studio album to be released in the entire history of the site.

    The shitstorms are fewer these days...thankfully.

    13 YEARS?!? I've only been around since '02 (and STILL with less than 500 posts? WTF is up with that?). I'm such a noob.

    However, I CAN hang my hat on being an old-school VHMLer...
