​Billie Eilish Has No Idea Who Van Halen Is and It's Amazing
Billie Eilish appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! a couple weeks back, but a short clip from her interview is only going viral now — the clip in which she reveals she doesn't know who Van Halen is.
 
Kimmel starts quizzing her on the year 1984 (the year he was her age, 17), starting out by asking if she knows who Madonna is. She does.
 
Then he asks, "Can you name a Van Halen?" She simply responds, "Who?"
 
Kimmel then says, "I'm gonna start crying."
 
Now, a hilarious inter-generational battle has kicked off on Twitter, with hair metal fans lamenting the taste of youth these days and anyone under the age of 50 not caring that she doesn't know who Van Halen is.
 
See Eilish's full segment on Kimmel's show, as well as some of the varying responses to it below.
 
Even current Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen (who is only 28 years old) has weighed in on the debate. And for what it's worth, he doesn't care if Eilish knows his band or not.
