    I saw their new video the other day and noticed that they have a giant W with 2 wings much like the original VH logo and then they light on fire like VH's did in the old days.

    Anyone else notice this?

    is it a rip off or a tribute?

    I saw that and thought the same thing too. Sounds like a ripoff to me. [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img]

    Hey Weezer are my boys! I love Weezer. They have alot of respect for Van Halen and are huge metalheads. It does look like the =VH=, but they are different. I think they are giving props.

    What's with these homies dissin' my girl.
    Where do they got a front.

    Here's a visual aid of the logo (without flames) for anyone who hasn't seen it before:

    Yeah I saw that too. It's definitely more of an acknowledgement than a rip off.

    My roommate is the biggest Weezer fan. This topic came up a couple months ago. Purely a tribute. They love VH.

    "We get to the hotel, there's people partyin' in the parking lot, people gettin' down in the elevator, wow! I swear to God I had this one chick, this chick was poundin' on my door, she was kickin' and screamin' at my door 'til about 6:30 this morning. Finally, I just said, 'Fuck it!' and let her out of my room!" - David Lee Roth

    Paul McCartney might want to look into this as well - looks a little like the ol' Wings logo, too!

    Yeah, they've had that logo on T-Shirts & stuff from back as far as their first album. It's a tribute!

    It's a tribute for sure. They even cover Hot for Teacher, and do a fine job!
