    A funny VH story from my class...I was cranking VH2 during lunch Monday...one of my favorite students walks in and starts talking during "Dance the Night Away." I turned, stared wild eyed and told him never to interfere with the playing of a VH album...that it just wasn't right(with a smile, of course) He looks at me and says,"I wanted to look at the cd box because that thing you played by him(VH) the other day(Eruption) was cool...I told my dad to get me that for my birthday."

    This kid is in fifth grade...and they say public education ain't teeching tha rite stuf!!!

    How cool is that!! Eruption rescues another innocent from boy pop purgatory!!!

    You ain't a Van Halen fan??!!??

    PUT DOWN THE CRACK PIPE AND STEP AWAY...VERY...VERY...SLOWLY!!!

    Another little VH fan in the making...very cool indeed

    My proud moment today was when my 5 yr old told another kid "I don't listen to that dorky music...I listen to rock n' roll" Meaning Van Halen of course

    Right on SF, your a teach? lol ... A little flashback for min-eyes in 6th grade, during "reading time" after lunch(and yes I do remember this), asking all the kidz for their free time passes.(you would get these when you did good on your homework and stuff) just so I could be over at the tape machine recorder, with my EEAS tape, blasting YR for the whole 15 min!

    It's funny cause I had a DLR tape before a VH tape to think about it? Man I didn't even hear of VH till 8th grade n shit? lol ...

    Kick-ass thread btw SF! Nice to have finally met you, welcome yet again to the links.

    here's a good one, same subject...
    my nephew gets in my car and says "Auntie, put on Van Halen" I turn to him (with the widest smile, I'm sure) and ask him what song he wants to hear...he says "Unchained... I like the way you drive to that one"
    Hope he doesn't tell my brother...

    Good idea, playing VH in your class. I wish my teachers would do that.

    I work in Special Ed with an 8 year old Austic boy. He is mainstreamed in a regular classroom and I tell all the "Normal Kids" Van Halen is # 1.....In Stink is # 99...They really get mad!!! I love to wear my VH shirt on causal Fridays..They come up to me and start giving me a hard time. They know Van Halen yet they have never heard them. That's why I can't wait for the new stuff with Dave to come out 'cause I know they will finally hear who I'm talking about!!

    Thanks for the nomination! The kids are way into VH...How else to defeat the godless hordes of boy band drones but to shove a little "Fair Warning" into the darkness!!

    I got a wicked cool Macroeconomics teacher. So, I always wear my VH shirt to class and one day he's like, "So, imagine Bill (me) is out at a Van Halen concert all night instead of studying for his exam. What's the opportunity cost to him?" I thought it was pretty cool.

    I hated to tell him that I would've gone to the VH concert instead of studying

    We all must be very diligent in playing VH in forms of media to all children. I feel little guilt in the fact that my daughter (7) knows must of the lyrics to Hot for Teacher. She just loves the drums. My 3 year old loves loud loud music, Especially the VH. I wonder if someone would call DCFS on me for bring my 7 year old to a VH concert.
