When I think of football, I automatically think of hardcore people, with hardcore music. Rock n Roll was made for events like football! However over the past couple of years, mainstreams music has taken over the game!
The infamous Super Bowl Halftime show is one of the biggest stages for a music star/group to preform.
Here is the past 5 Super Bowl Halftime Shows
Out of all of these, only 2 of them are Rock Bands!
Red Hot Chili Peppers
But these bands were not even the main events during the halftime show! The Red Hot Chili Peppers were in the shadow of Bruno Mars, and Coldplay was in the shadows of Bruno Mars and Beyoncé.
The reason why I make this such a big deal is because yet again, pop music is suppressing us Rock n Roll fans.
LADY GAGA will headline the Super Bowl halftime show next year.
According to Fox News, “NFL and Pepsi announced Thursday that the pop star will take the stage on Feb. 5, 2017, for the Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show at the NRG Stadium in Houston, airing on Fox.” – Full article HERE
Lady Gaga is coming out with a new album, “Joanne” on Oct. 21st but in my opinion that is not a reason to just give her the spot.
Yes I understand there is a bigger audience for pop music now, but if i could pick who I would headline the halftime show i would pick none other than METALLICA!
Metallica is coming out with a new album too! the album is titled “Hardwired… To Self Destruct” set to release November 18, 2016.
Metallica, in my opinion is the type of music that will hype fans up for football. I just don’t think lyrics that sound like a patient at a mental hospital are appealing.
“Rah rah ah-ah-ah!
Ro mah ro-mah-mah
Want your bad romance”
Take a look to see what we have in store for next year.
Oh wait… I forgot! She has sex appeal. Silly me! She deserves the stage.
