(hennemusic) The Ohio State University Spring Athletic Band performed a Van Halen tribute during its halftime show at Ohio Stadium as part of Ohio State's spring football game at home in Columbus on April 16.

The outfit delivered a medley of classic Van Halen tracks, including "Runnin' With the Devil," "Dreams," "Panama" and "Jump", while also recreating the California band's original era logo and the titles of a few of the featured songs, among other images.

Van Halen's self-titled 1978 debut album went on to reach Diamond status for US sales of more than 10 million copies, a rare feat they repeated six years later with their "1984" album, while "Jump" was the group's only US No. 1 single.

Eddie Van Halen passed away in October 2020 at the age of 65 from a stroke following a lengthy battle with cancer.

Van Halen was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2007. Watch video of the Van Halen tribute here.
