I always thought Sammy Hagar would be a great halftime performer. He has plenty of high energy, anthem style songs that everyone seems to know and he knows how to get a crowd going.

AC/DC would also be a great choice for the same reasons.

I was introduced to Manowar as a kid by my well-meaning but somewhat confused father. He's an old-school classic rock fan - Rush, Kansas, Styx, older Rolling Stones, KISS, AC/DC. Megadeth was a bit outside his comfort zone, let alone Helmet or Pantera.

So one day at work someone passes him a Manowar cassette tape. He glances at it, notes the cover art has kind of a hard fantasy motif, and brings it home to me. `You're still into that Dungeons and Dragons stuff, right?` Yeah, Dad. `Maybe you'll like this. It has a couple dragons on the front, right?` Right, Dad.

The tape? 1992's Triumph of Steel. I put it in my walkman and was treated to `Achilles - Agony and Ecstasy In Eight Parts.`

See my chariots run to your ships
I'll drive you back to the sea
You came here for gold - the wall will not hold
This day was promised to me
The gods are my shield, my fate has been sealed
Lightning and javelins fly
Soon many will fall, we are storming the wall
Stones fall like snow from the sky...


Thanks, Dad. I owe you one.

Beyonce and her ass. Truly a half-time show that can be enjoyed with the sound off and replayed frame-by-frame, (if you know what I mean).

Or a select number of fans get to play a one full quarter football game. Or some f'n medieval times tournament or something! The superbowl halftime show shouldn't make me more disappointed with this country than I already am.

Honestly, having Manowar or any other legit metal band playing a super bowl halftime show would have the players so pumped up that they would all have concussions or kill each other from huge hits.


Honestly, Manowar are vastly underrated. One of the best vocalists in metal, a unique bassist, and just a talented band all around who write some amazing songs. Problem is, people see an album cover and are insecure and go "derp a half nekkid man with long hair dont want to catch teh ghey this shiat must suck lol!1111" or they think every single Manowar song is Kings of Metal or Brothers of Metal.


For every cheesy Manowar song, there are literally ten epic ones that were overlooked. I think the only reason these guys aren't insanely rich is because they put tons of money into putting on amazing live shows. Seriously, huge firework display, full choirs and orchestras to back them up, the best equipment possible. Imagine the show they could put on if they played at the Super Bowl with that kind of budget they'd be allowed.



Metal bands and real metal fans know how great and important Manowar are to the genre, it's just little insecure posers who try to bash them.

In all seriousness, though, I agree with the question: why is the Super Bowl Halftime Show almost always some crappy pop act?

AC/DC would be a perfect choice for a halftime show. AC/DC's music has been played at sporting events for decades to get the crowd pumped up. An AC/DC halftime show seems like a no-brainer.

Metallica would also be a good choice. They've got mainstream recognition, but they're also heavy and good music to get pumped up to.

Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Ozzy Osbourne would be some other good choices.

My guess is that they always use pop acts for the halftime show is to make the Super Bowl more appealing to female viewers.

Kings of Metal is just awesome through and through. I can't really play Pleasure Slave with young children around, though. Or, for that matter, anyone else who might take the song seriously.

I was trying to think of a point on Kings of Metal that has just worn on me over the years, and about all I can think of is The Warrior's Prayer, but that's not really a song, so it doesn't really count (no matter how much they recycle it)

That one's great. For another slow one, Master of the Wind is good, too. Especially if you have a real CD version and good bass on your speakers. Even really high quality MP3 compression seems to squash out the low-end of that song.

"Raping Face" should be a name of a band. That makes at least some of their set Manowar covers.

If you want, just pick up one of their live albums. In fact, just go see them live if you get the chance, they put on an amazing show. They also sound really good live.

That's a hell of an ending to a concert. They've transcended being kings of metal and are really gods of metal.

BloodFireDeath: You really can't go wrong with any Manowar album.

Hail to England is my personal favorite.


If you want, just pick up one of their live albums. In fact, just go see them live if you get the chance, they put on an amazing show. They also sound really good live.

The live albums I've heard, I thought were all kind of "meh". They don't seem to have the intensity and power that hallmarks their studio work. Maybe I just need better sound.

Also, The Crown and The Ring .. wow. It's got farking bells in it. Not the church kind of bells, but the instrument bells. Tons of use of them. And a chorus, and an orchestra. (or at least simulations thereof) And it sounds like farking METAL.
