    Default Van Halen music too expensive for movies?

    The Onion's "AV Club" site is running an interview with Dax Shepard and he's talking about the cost of putting film cues in movies. Apparently, Van Halen is too expensive.

    Here's the VH bit:

    AVC: You canít begrudge musicians one of the few remaining avenues where they can reliably get paid for their work, butó

    DS: They fucking charge you, man. They are not joking around. And some of these people are absolutely delusional, too. Some of these bands, theyíre asking five times as much as The Rolling Stones are asking for their music. Iíll say it, fuck them, like Van Halen. You would not believe what they think their shitís worth. Like 20 times what Metallica will charge you.

    ------------

    Dax Shepherd is nobody's Marlon Brando, but regardless of his abilities, this is a good point. If VH is charging five times what Mick, Keith and the boys ask, I'd say it's delusional.

    Is this par for the course with Van Halen, or what? A few seconds of one of their tunes in a movie can be excellent publicity, especially if the movie's a hit. Think Reece's Pieces jumping aboard E.T. after M&M's said no.

    Is anyone surprised?

    "It's all about the music," they said. Yup. Right. And the striped beach towels? Can they sing a tune?

    Fuck who cares? VH should be charging 20 times what Metallica charges. I really don't care if I never hear a VH tune in a movie. I really don't think any less of the band because they want a lot of money for their tunes to be used in a film. Eddie's worked for free for people in the past so what the hell?

    Cash - Its may not be the final answer, but it sure helps get you there!

    Now, if only we knew what the answer from VH was........

    (or the question
    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    It must not be that expensive. Panama and Everybody Wants Some were both used recently in movies (Superbad and Zombieland). Hell Adam Sandler probably bankrupted his previous movie (like he needed help).

    Besides, if VH is missing out on business for charging too much, that's their problem, not us fans.

    It reminds me of a Jack in the Box commercial from a few years ago. Jack is walking around a fast food expo and there's a guy in a lawn chair with a giant sign that reads: "taste tester: $25,000" or something like that. Jack asks: "that's a little steep, isn't it?" The man leans back in his chair and smiles "it only takes one."
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I don't have any problem with VH charging a lot for a movie to use a song of theirs.
    If you a movie wants an 'A-List' actor, they have no problem shelling out multi-millions to get them...regardless of what other actors are asking for.

    Why in the hell does it bother anyone that Ed wants to make money off what he does for a living?

    God bless the man for trying to make the most money he possibly can from his chosen profession.

    There are so called "purity" artists out there, that pretty much just want to create art and not really make any money from it, that way it keeps it pure.

    You know what else they are called?

    Welfare recipients.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Van Halen is just not a budget band. If you have to ask the price, you can't afford them.

    Who said anything about Mike and Sam? You seem to be hung up on them today, as you brought them up twice, in different threads.

    Good I hope Ed makes 10 bagillion dollars off his music. Who gives a fuck if it's not in a movie.
