Billie Eilish doesn’t know Van Halen

BILLIE EILISH was on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” recently, and she didn’t seem familiar with VAN HALEN.

The Internet was apparently STUNNED by this, which is weird since Billie is 17, and all Van Halen’s classic albums came out before she was born.

They did put out an album in 2012 with David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen’s son Wolfgang on bass.  But chances are YOU aren’t even familiar with that one.

But Wolfgang, who’s 28 now, is coming to Billie’s defense.  He Tweeted, quote, “If you haven’t heard of Billie Eilish, go check her out.  She’s cool.  If you haven’t heard of Van Halen, go check them out.  They’re cool too.

“Music is supposed to bring us together, not divide us.  Listen to what you want and don’t shame others for not knowing what you like.”

The band Smash Mouth also has her back.  They Tweeted, quote, “We grew up listening to Van Halen and we’re old as [eff] so why would Billie Eilish know who they are?  #NoDiss”
