7 Bands Who Should Perform At Super Bowl 50

Super Bowl 50 is a big occasion, but the NFL's decision to have Coldplay the Halftime show is not good enough. Here are 7 bands that could do a much better job at rocking a crowd of millions.

Foo Fighters

Why the hell haven't Foo Fighters played halftime yet? Since the mid-'90s, few modern rock bands have consistently put out as many well-received albums and been capable of filling stadiums and arenas as Dave Grohl's group. That, and how can you go wrong with the nicest guy in rock?



The Super Bowl is actually being played in Santa Cruz, but the NFL is labelling the host city as San Francisco. So then, why isn't the region's heaviest, most ferocious band only allowed to play some random, secondary event the night before the big game? There's no justice for anyone here.



AC/DC is known for putting on a hard rock spectacle few bands from its generation can continually do. Production value aside, how would anyone complain about a Halftime show featuring "For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)," "Back in Black," "Thunderstruck" and "You Shook Me All Night Long" on the setlist?


Guns N' Roses

This would've NEVER been officially considered, even though a GNR reunion held at Super Bowl 50 would've been a bold, shrewd move. However, with Axl's reputation for regularly taking the stage hours late, maybe we can understand why the NFL didn't go this route. But, really, how awesome would it be for a Halftime show to launch with "Welcome to the Jungle"?


Green Day

Like Metallica, Green Day is from the Bay area, but was seemingly never speculated as a performer for Super Bowl 50. Recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Green Day boasts an army of hits, plus one of music's most entertaining frontmen: Billie Joe Armstrong.



U2 knows how to do the big moments. In 2002, with America still struggling to cope with the aftermath of 9/11, Bono and the boys put on a spirited performance. Wouldn't it have been great to see the band play Halftime under less strenuous circumstances?


The Killers

Okay, this is the wild card of the bunch, but anyone who has seen The Killers in concert know that this 'Vegas crew are pros with an admirable catalogue of hits. They would light up the Super Bowl in a spectacularly bright, unique way.
