Wolfgang Van Halen No Likey One Direction


In what may be one of the lamest band beefs to ever go public, Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen — now the touring bassist for Mark Tremonti’s solo band — is feuding with One Direction, that band your little sister would get naked for.

So, seems Van Halen called out the group on Twitter after a run-in with them at a hotel in Birmingham, England, where Tremonti is on tour at the moment.

“Fun fact: Was just insulted by that shitty boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning!,” writes Van Halen, who is only famous because of his DNA.

“No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #OneDirection were dickheads to (Tremonti bandmembers Eric Friedman, Garrett Whitlock) and I. They must call themselves that because all of their hair points in #OneDirection.”

Whitlock, Tremonti’s drummer, later tweeted, “Had a run-in with some boy band in the hotel lobby. No worries. I can’t take a insult from someone who doesn’t even write their own tunes.”

One Direction has yet to comment.

Hey Wolfie — you look like a pussy for these Tweets.

It’s true.

Ask your dad.
