So, Who Should Play the Super Bowl Halftime Show Next Year?
Here's hoping that Taylor Swift doesn't begin dating a pro football player anytime soon. In the span of time it took me to type that sentence, she probably already did.
Imagine your bitch-cakes ex-girlfriend singing about how shitty you are as a person as the featured entertainment in the middle of the biggest game of your life.
AC/DC should have a new album by the fall, so they could be in the running. Say no to Aerosmith, everyone who makes these decisions for the NFL. Dear God, don't let Roger Goodell discover Coldplay. A Coldplay halftime show would result in another American Civil War.
Daft Punk? The robots meet the gridiron? No Doubt? Katy Perry? She could be Katy Mayer by then, making for a deluxe package deal, killing so many birds with so many stones.
An all-star indie-pop throwdown with Passion Pit, fun., and that one band that wears neon you always hear on car ads?
The Black Keys get played enough in pro sports that it seems plausible for them to eventually appear eventually. Maybe then people can see that they are really two guys playing instruments, and not a faceless studio band that makes commercial jingles.
Personally, my pick would be a tandem Van Halen/Van Hagar show, as long as David Lee Roth promises to not show any video of his dog playing fetch.
