Should music prodigy Billie Eilish be ashamed for not knowing who Van Halen is?
That’s the debate Twitter has been locked in on Monday — nearly a week after the Grammy nominee made it clear she has never heard of your dad’s favorite hard rock band.
It all began when the 17 -year-old pop star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week and was quizzed on her knowledge of’ 80 s pop culture. While she appeared to know who Madonna was, she was completely lost when Jimmy Kimmel brought up the Panama band, who have been in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame since 2007.

When Kimmel asked her to “name a Van Halen, ” Billie’s response was:
Observe 😛 TAGEND
Billie Eilish didn’t know who Van Halen was, I’m sobbing.
Wolfgang Van Halen — son of guitar titan Eddie Van Halen , who replaced founding bassist Michael Anthony in 2006 when he was just 15 — told his followers to give Billie a breach. He wrote:
“If you haven’t heard of @billieeilish, go check her out. She’s cool. If you haven’t heard of @ VanHalen, 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.”
What he said!
