The late superstar guitarist Eddie Van Halen has a New York City subway station named after him, a temporary guerrilla-style homage to the shredder's massive musical influence.
The New York street artist Adrian Wilson blames on Instagram that Van Siclen Avenue in Brooklyn becomes "Van Halen Avenue" on the A / C line.

Seemingly worried about the lack of press, he said on the post: “I let someone else go to Brooklyn and take out the loan for 4 days, but no one showed up, so ok, I think I have to do it myself … You're welcome."
Wilson told people it was "easy" to do: "A famous person dies, looks for the name of a subway station and puts a sticker over it to remember the person."
In the past two years, Prince and David Bowie have been officially recognized at the stations in New York, which Spotify did in Union Square and on Broadway Lafayette. Spotify's Bowie Tribute from April to May 2018 was intended to promote the David Bowie Is exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Bowie's New York home was near the subway station.
An unofficial, temporary homage to another lost great was Franklin Avenue Station in Brooklyn, which became "Aretha Franklin Avenue".
