The obvious answer:...

When I was reading this I thought for sure you were going to say Zooey, but instead you went with the disappointing Van Halen.

Even Zooey is sad because of it...

That's not Zooey "sad", that's Zooey "pouty". She is more complex than one might imagine. LOL

So, of course Zooey was my first thought, but even I have to admit that She and Him just aren't big enough yet for the Super Bowl halftime. In a perfect world Zooey sings the National Anthem and Van Halen rocks half time.

Oh, and the Saints win the game 49-3.

OK. I stand corrected, but still up in arms against Van Halen.

I think they're the perfect choice. The new CD is classic Van Halen...a little darker maybe, and I know you either love or loathe David Lee Roth, but I sure as hell dig it, and their shows are selling out all over the country...AND the last show of the tour is...wait for it...NEW ORLEANS.

Zooey digs VH.

OK. I've just never liked them, I've type cast them into the same garbage bin as f.e. Def Leppard, and that is one bin which contents should never be recycled.

Again, just my opinion, and I never watch the halftime show, so it's all the same to me who they have performing.

But if it was Zooey and her ukulele I might watch...

Anyone who pimps Van Halen after "Women and Children First" is a music moron.

Blaspheme! LOL

Def Leppard is "A" Ball.

Van Halen is in a completely different league. Without Mutt Lange Def Leppard is just something that happened in the 80's that a few people can remember. Van Halen is almost (and in some cases IS) genre-defining. Revolutionary? Outside of Eddie probably not. But dude, there's an edge to what they do (and I'm talking about with Roth) that legitimizes their music, even when David is show-boating. LOL

Most years I'd be thrilled for Metallica or AC/DC but since its being hosted in one of the most musically talented cities in the world, the NFL or who ever books the garbage that is known as the Half time show needs to get local talent plus add Southern and/or Grambling somehow

I was only 1 when that came out, so maybe I'm not the right demographic for their music.

That type of "power rock" or whatever its categorized as that Van Halen represents has never struck a chord with me - and as a side note I can further alienate people by saying that AC/DC sucks balls too.

Metallica would be OK if they only did songs from Justice/Puppets era.
