Unfortunately, Billie is seeing the ire of some metal fans today. The video clip has since gone viral, and one of the band's very own, Wolfgang Van Halen, has defended her. 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. But people were quick to come to Billie's defence, questioning how a 17-year-old is meant to know of a band who hasn't produced any significant music in her lifetime. Jimmy then starts listing the stars of 1984, seeing if she knows them.
Billie turned the internet into a frenzy when she couldn't name a Van Halen member, instead asking "Who?" while being quizzed.
"I do know who Madonna is", she replies. After Eilish passed this first round, he asked her to "name a Van Halen".
Unsurprisingly, it was the middle-aged men who were most enraged by the revelation that not every person in the world is aware of a band that peaked in the '80s - which was at least 20 years before Billie Eilish was even born.

"I'm going to start crying", says Jimmy.
If there's a right answer here, it's the latter point: of course Billie Eilish doesn't now who Van Halen is.
"I know u guys think that this is ok and I get it but...cmon girl it's VAN HALEN".
The 28-year-old bassist weighed in with a level-headed response to hopefully discourage any Van Halen fans from freaking out too much. To put it another way, are most Van Halen superfans deeply knowledgeable about Tommy Dorsey's work with Frank Sinatra? "Listen to what you want and don't shame others for not knowing what you like".
