Van Halen Slams One Direction! Calls the Boy Band… Err, Just Read On

One Direction on the Alan Carr Show; INSET: Wolfgang Van Halen

BBC Radio 1/WENN

We smell a feud a’brewing… If you haven’t heard, the One Direction guys have developed reputations as individuals; as mentioned in the latest issue of SeventeenZayn Malik‘s the “bad boy,” Harry Styles is considered “girl crazy,” etc. But as a whole unit, words like “bromantic,” “silly” and “sweethearts” probably come to mind. That is, unless you’re a part of hard rock band Van Halen. Its bassist, Wolfgang, had some choice words to say about the British-Irish group. (NOTE: His choice of words was a little colorful, so we had a censor a tad bit. But we’re sure you’ll get the point.)

Tweet #1: Fun fact: Was just insulted by that $4!##y boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning! Greetings Birmingham!

Tweet #2: No joke. That ACTUALLY happened. That group of kids in #OneDirection were d***heads to @IIEROCKII @GWDrums and I.

Tweet #3: They must call themselves that because all of their hair points in #OneDirection

Since we don’t know the entire situation, it wouldn’t be fair to choose sides. But, let’s face it, you know you’re on one. WDYT of Wolfgang’s choice words? What word comes to mind when you think of 1D? Leave us a note below, or join the convo on our One Direction message board!

      #11#12 ClotUp to 7th and top of our CPL group and you’re still calling rategelion? What I find really funny about your run so far is that the highest placed team you have managed to beat this year are the Mackems in 14th spot. So keep dreaming.By the way are you revisiting your last prediction on ManU. Will admit the Man U fixture is a bit problematic.

  • Ana Beatriz Q. Barrios

    That’s not very nice and easy. One Direction became popular since 2010-2011. Why would people say such racist things?? :(

  • Allison

    Why would he make that up?
    Its most likely true.
