    And I'm not saying this to rag on you. It was truly bad.
    The sound sucked, it still blew away the Black Eyed Peas, and last years disaster.

    Springsteen can't be summed up in 12 minutes. Springsteen shows are still really good, albeit I haven't been to one since 2009. I know you didnt like it. I seriously doubt AC/DC or any of the aging big rockers could do better.

    AC/DC still delivers. FWIW I thought Springsteen was far and away one of the best half time shows yet. Its hard to sound good on TV.

    LOL. Agree to disagree I suppose. Unless you're talking exclusively about the "showmanship" aspect. Yes he's a good showman.

    At this stage in their respective careers....almost.

    Swift fits what they want more, thats really why she makes sense.

    I'm done too.

    I do enjoy not listening to him every chance I get.

    I'd rather watch Van Halen play the halftime show over some bullsh*t pop group like The Black Eyed Peas.

    I still say Metallica would put on a pretty sweet halftime show. As long as they stick to their 80's stuff (For Whom The Bell Tolls, Master of Puppets, etc).

    I think if you polled the newest fans of the NFL & all of the kids that are playing fantasy football, MOST would know who Jack White is & most would say they dig him & his music.
    Seriously, can it be any worse than most of the halftime shows. I think even the NFL is realizing that dragging these old groups out of their graves is getting stagnant. Oh, & the Black Eyed Peas were horrendous! Talk about a "studio" band,lol.

    AC/DC would be an awesome halftime show. No clue why anyone would disagree.

    Yes. The allmighty AC/DC would be the perfect choice and have the most relevance and familiarity with Nfl fans and spectators dare I say. After all every NFL stadium feature AC/DC songs at one point or anothher on game day. You are more likely to hear Thunderstruck than anything by the E-street band on game day.

    I got to see Van Halen in March and the show was a blast. As far as the shows they canceled the word was they just bit off more than they could chew. It was to much of a grind for them. They have already scheduled shows in Japan so it seems they are getting along fine.

    Here is a new one from the last album.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Cl1f...eature=related
