    Just wondering if we have any other fans of The Who and what you think about them being the band playing at halftime of The Game.

    Yes I'm a fan of The Who. But only of the original lineup which included Keith Moon and John Entwistle, who have passed on to the great gig in the sky.
    I don't have any recordings after they replaced Moon and I probably never will.
    To me, they just aren't the same without Moon who was THE rock drummer. The guy was amazing. Ever see concert footage of him? It's like he played every drum and cymbal at the same time.
    Anyway, I'll probably tune in just to see what their like but as for who they are now, I can take or leave them. I would have liked to have seen them in the 60's-70's.

    What do you think?

    I like a lot of music from the 60's. But the Who is not one of them. Seems like a pretty boring Half Time show to me.

    I thought Last years show was lame too.

    Sure is nice of MTV to screw us all over so bad with Boob-Gate that we will never see another exciting halftime show again.

    Obviously this is my opinion. I doubt many people my age share it.

    Oh yeah! I meant to put in something about that too.

    That might explain why we have bands with all or mostly men now.

    I'm surprised that (some of) you people haven't "caught on" to this yet ...

    *chuckles*

    The main reason "The Who" is playing at the Super Bowl is because of the anticipation that Favre and Minnesota will be one of the participants ... After all "the Old Man" needs to listen to some music he can remember from when he was young ...

    LOL

    I get more and more disappointed with the lineup for the half time show every year. It used to be entertaining to see what kind of madness was gonna come out of it. Now it's just old and boring. The NFL needs to learn that in order to expand it's brand, it needs to cater to a younger crowd. The Who, while an awesome rock band back in the day, aren't on many young people's play list these days.

    I can think of 5 bands right off the top of my head who are A) still relevant to today and B) would put on an awesome half time performance and are main stream enough to cater to a decent crowd:

    Korn
    Foo Fighters
    Metallica
    Green Day
    Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Of course I have some personal favorites as well, but most don't fit the "Huge band" mantra like the above 5 do.

    LOL! My ideal half time show would last longer than the game! =)

    I was thinking in terms of general popularity, relevancy and stage presence. While I understand some people won't be a fan of say, Korn or Metallica, both bands put on an incredible show. It would certainly get people amped and keep the atmosphere kicking some major ***!

    The operative word in your statement is "history." With the way things are going, I wonder if next years half time show will feature Iron Butterfly?

    Man I have literally said the SAME thing!! These past Super Bowl halftime shows have been soooo boring. I understand The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, etc. were all huge back then, but sorry it's not working in the 21st century.

    Now I'm glad MTV isn't doing halftime shows because all we would see is that rap "music" with all the Lil (insert name here) "singers." But I do think we need to have more modern bands. Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers are probably my top 2 who I think should perform. They have music that can appeal to the whole family, imo. I'm sure there are others out there that have the same kind of appeal.

    I think it would be awesome if they let the fans decide who gets to perform. Maybe have some kind of poll or something idk.

    I seriously don't want to look at 66 year old **** Jagger jumping around in a very tight, small t-shirt. I think I'll pass.

    The most laughable thing about the NFL trotting out these bands from the sixties, is when the crowd of teens and twenty-somethings rush the stage like they actually know who these old farts are. Their enthusiasm seems so staged.

    The NFL might have the biggest stage for a show, but they have no idea what people listen to.

    A) If Korn ever plays the Super Bowl halftime show, i'll personally kill whoever makes the decision on who plays the halftime show. :triniti:

    B) Bruce Springsteen is always huge. He is The Boss. If he wants to play the halftime show every year, the NFL should sign him up.

    C) I normally go, umm, what Najeh Davenport did in that laundry basket during the halftime show anyways, so I almost always miss most of it. (And the answer is yes, I schedule that. Can't go during the game, can't go during the commercials. That leaves halftime. Lol.)

    D) If I got to choose i'd schedule Taylor Swift for the following reason: she would come out, get like 12 seconds into her first song, and then Kanye West would interrupt her and boot her off the stage. He would then perform Heartless. Laughs would be had.

    Whoever said that MTV screwed the pooch is dead on. It will take another decade before the NFL takes a risk. That being said the NFL also apeases rich men in their 50's that dump millions of advertising into their coffers. I'm 49 and I think the Who is in the tank. I'd take 3 of the bands on your list. Can't stomach Corn or Metallica. BTW Metallica are NOT spring chickens. Can I get any love for Drop Kick Murphys ?

    Why not a serious band that still remains relevant and actually manages to put out consistently good music?

    Attend a live show and then tell me there's a better live act in the music industry. They're at a completely different level than anything else going today - which, obviously isn't saying too much, though. :)
