Re: Who would u want to see at the next SB halftime show?

Van Halen rocks. No denying it. Even if you like harder stuff, they still effin Rock. And when you get to the Hagar era, there's enough 'pop-ish' stuff to accommodate that crowd too.

A 4 song show - two with Sammy and two with Diamond Dave - would blow the roof off of the place.

Or how about this. Two with Dave, two with Sammy, and then one to end it with those two guys on stage together trading off the lyrics.

IT...WOULD...BE...EPIC. Of course, you'd have to get Eddie and Alex and Sammy and Dave to agree not to kill each other long enough to make it happen - and I'm just the guy to negotiate that for them. I could do it. I could make it happen.

Yeah. Van Halen. That'd be a halftime show worth watching. The only thing better would be to have the Saints win that game.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

I am a Van Halen fan yes... Not of VanHagar..


What would I like to see for a half time show next year? An independent film titled "The Flogging", staring Roger Goodell as the gimp, Co-staring Greg Williams as Strap-on-Sam.





Otherwise, play 15 minutes of the Sopranos. I dont care to see boy bands, pop bands, 60 year old bands...

Saw Van Halen last year. They're all 60 or damn near with the exception of Wolfie - and let me tell you those old men still rock their asses off. Here's a couple videos I took from the San Jose show:



In my humble opinion, this particular 60 year old band rocks harder than just about anyone else age notwithstanding.

Oh don't get me wrong.. Id like to see them in concert. i just don't care for the commercialized extravaganza when i have my gameface on.

A quote from one of the Ravens players at 1/2 time (when they should be thinking about nothing but the game) "at half time we could hear the music in the locker room and were trying to figure out which one of Beyonce's songs was on".

LOL Remember what happened in the second half..They did win but the second half was a different ball game by the Ravens.

Insane Clown Posse or Merle Haggard, either would be nice.....actually Pearl Jam would be nice.

Pearl Jam would be great. Don't see the NFL going that way though.

Re: Who would u want to see at the next SB halftime show?

I like some of the ideas put forth in this thread but we all know the halftime show is to get people watching that normally wouldn't watch a football game. So they are gonna get the biggest name, usually some pop star, they can get. Personally I"d like to see one of the alternative rock bands play, even one of hte bigger ones that have been around for awhile like the Foo Fighters or Weezer. My personal favorite to do the sohw would be Silversun Pickups. I might be old but my musical heart & head aren't.

What about the Blues Brothers?

Dan Akroyd and Jim Belushi out front, NO John Goodman...
