Wolf Van Halen has made his way back into the news. The son of rock music legend Eddie Van Halen is certainly not shy when it comes to sharing his thoughts online.

Like his father, Wolf Van Halen is also a talented guitar player. He actually was the bassist for the rock band Van Halen from 2006 to 2020. The 30-year-old also performed with the heavy metal band Tremonti for a couple of years, from 2012 until 2016. But following the tragic death of his father, Wolf has been focusing on his solo project, Mammoth WVH. With Mammoth WVH, he performs everything from all the instruments to the vocals as well.

Meanwhile, Wolf Van Halen uses a lot of his spare time to fire back at trolls on social media. And since he has been in the spotlight ever since he was a kid, everyone turns an eye whenever Wolf decides to post his thoughts online.

His latest critique comes in the form of viral videos. A viral video is a video that becomes extremely popular through a viral process of sharing it online on social media. Some viral videos may be serious, and some are deeply emotional. But most people would agree that the majority of viral videos you see online will be centered around entertainment and/or something funny.

So, what exactly is Wolf Van Halen’s issue with viral videos? Well, he doesn’t like that people will tell viewers to “wait for it” despite the video being just seconds long.

“People post ‘WAIT FOR IT!! 😂’ on 7 second long videos because the internet has ruined us,” Wolf wrote on Sunday evening.

Wolf Van Halen Fans Respond to His Latest Thoughts

So, what do you think? Has the internet ruined us all? There are plenty of fans out there who agree with the talented guitar player.

“It’s so damn true,” one fan said. “A video takes more than 5 seconds to load and I’m like ‘Aw c’mon to f—k man!’ Have to remind myself of the days of dial up when it would take half an hour to load a picture and I was just like ‘guess I’ll just need to wait.'” 🤣

“Although if you had done that on the initial ‘Here’s a sample of what I am working on’ videos it would have ruled,’ one person told Van Halen. “‘Wolf, I waited but the clip was only one second. I don’t think the clip is working.'”

Meanwhile, some of Wolf Van Halen’s older fans agreed with him as well.

“Social media is messing with young people,” another fan admitted. “Pretty tragic.”

“I mean, you’re not wrong. But you’re a little young to go all, ‘get off of my lawn,’ aren’t ya? Maybe leave that to us olds.”
