    Default The official Van Halen "obscure reference" thread!

    Okay, I obviously have way too much time on my hands but I thought this might be kind of fun. What are some obscure references to Van Halen that have come up?

    Yesterday I noticed something on my cell phone. My password for my voicemail can only be four digits so, of course, I use 5150. Then I have to hit 'pound' to get into the voice mailbox. Then I hit the number one to listen to new messages. So when you look at the screen on the phone, it comes up as 5150#1! I thought that was kind of cool...

    ...or maybe I need some serious help!

    Ace, don't worry you're not alone. I can't really think of anything right now, but it does happen to me all the time.
    Oh, I once was at the grocery store and when I checked out I owed $19.84.

    For over 20 years now that I've had credit cards, ATM cards, my voicemail passwords, etc., my password has always been '1984'.

    I started it when I was really a VH fanatic and got so used to it that I've never felt a reason to change (plus it's so easy to remember).

    I paid $51.50 at the store a couple of times, and I also ate some brown m&ms last night after much inner turmoil.
