    Default Billie Eilish says she doesn't know who Van Halen is

    Man, I saw VH trending on twitter and freaked out... mostly scared about bad news. But this is the way they make news nowadays:

    Why would she?

    Van Halen is so irrelevant to today's music, especially for someone who is what, 17 yrs old?

    I'm officially old when I hate new terms. I hate the term SHAME. No...wait....I hate how it's used today....not the actual term.

    Great message from Wolf though.

    I've never heard of her until about a week ago. But not having heard of VH during her lifetime isn't surprising..it's not like they've been front and center of the music world the last 20 years

    Well I have no idea who she is or what genre she even belongs to. But, when I was her age, a lot of my friends had no idea who a lot of the jazz and big band greats were either. It's sad, but it's pretty normal for a lot of young people, no matter what generation it is.

    I’d be more concerned if a young hard rock artist didn’t know Van Halen. Billy Eilish? Not even in the same genre.

    I agree with Wolf too except he's mostly talking to fans -- not a professional musician whose entire family (brother, parents) are also professional musicians. There should be a little more historical knowledge passed down, I would think. I mean, I don't assume any normal 18 year old should know who they are, but with parents who are musicians, and growing up mostly listening to the Beatles and Green Day, she'd never once heard the name "Van Halen" before at all? Not even in passing?

    I guess I get it, it's more sad these days than not understandable.

    "Van Halen" is now the second most topic being discussed on twitter right now after "Cyber Monday"... oh well

    I think the way Jimmy asked the question didn't help. He said name a Van Halen. If he said "do you know who Eddie Van Halen is?" then maybe the name rings a bell for her.

    Not surprised she'd never heard of VH. Wolf's tweet was fantastic.

    Saw her on SNL a few weeks ago and liked the second song she did. Had no idea she was only 17.
