    Default Van Halen song in THIS IS 40

    Hey guys, I've noticed that people like to point out VH music in TV and film - the upcoming film THIS IS 40 features a healthy cut of Little Guitars which is playing while Chris O'Dowd draws the Diver Down cover on a chalk board.

    The movie has some fantastic music in it!! I mean it's no THAT'S MY BOY (which probably has the most VH of any movie ever) but it has a great soundtrack.
    What once upon a time made Van Halen unique in the progression of metal and hard rock (besides Eddie’s prowess as a guitarist) was its sense of fun, its willingness to be not just over the top, but weird.

    VH always seems to find it's way into films. Why? Because they rock, that's why!!

    Sounds cool, but I'm not sure the drawing means anything to VH, the Diver Down cover is an international flag to let people know there is a person diving in the area.

    True, but if Little Guitars is playing as someone is drawing the flag, it would be one of the craziest coincidences in movie history if the filmakers didn't intend for it to be the album cover.

    It's also a Judd Apatow joint. He has put VH in previous productions (eg. Panama in Superbad).

    He says he's drawing the album cover.

    “You can wonder what Roth and Eddie Van Halen are doing in the same band. It’s hard to imagine two guys with less in common psychologically, yet together they seem to make a complete personality. Extrovert balanced by introvert, logic by intuition, entertainment balanced by artistry.” --Charles Young, Musician Magazine.

    Not to mention starting the amazing Freaks and Geeks with the intro of Runnin' With the Devil.

    BTW, the wife and I saw This is 40 last night. Very funny movie.
