Just to give a bit of trivia about a Van Halen copyright story...

In the movie Back to the Future, there's a scene where Marty inserts a Van Halen cassette to pretend he's Darth Vader from the planet Vulcan. Eddie granted the producers permission to use his name, but they couldn't get permission from the rest of the group.

Since writing the group's name on the tape label would've been illegal, the name "Edward Van Halen" was written to specify the individual instead of the group.
