It's safe to say that most hard rock musicians probably aren't fans of One Direction , but one in particular just dissed the British boy band on Twitter: the current bass player for rock legends Van Halen .  

On Twitter, Wolfgang Van Halen , bass player and son of the band's iconic guitarist, Eddie Van Halen , wrote from Birmingham, England, "Fun fact: Was just insulted by that s****y boy band #OneDirection in the lobby of our hotel this morning!"

He then continued , "No joke. That ACTUALLY happened."  He went on to say, "that group of kids in #OneDirection were d***kheads" both to him and his two companions.   Mocking the group's name, Wolfgang finished by saying , "They must call themselves that because all of their hair points in ."

Mind you, Wolfgang Van Halen isn't some grizzled old rocker -- he's only 21 years old, so One Direction are basically his peers.
