Hear what's written on the wind
we come to kill and kill again!
our arrows fall like hail
trample on the dead
ride through the gate of clouds
stand on the open step


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.

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.

AC/DC would absolutely destroy because people are so accustomed to listening to their songs at football games anyways...

Can you imagine how awesome it would be to be at the Super Bowl and have the entire Stadium chanting along with Thunderstruck? That would kick ass.

Can't we just skip the music and just watch Stevie Nicks strangle Nicki Minaj for 20 minutes?

At least it isn't a band of 60+ year olds who haven't have a hit 40 years.

Throw this in, and they'll cancel all future halftime shows forever.

Done in one

He really should do it at one point, would be so much fun, especially if you could get all the artists he is parodying to perform with him.

I don't think they'd make it through the opening stanza of Hail and Kill before the censors bailed.

Seriously. They should have a hardcore act set and a heavy metal band.
Too much estrogen during the Superbowl.

Drinking game:
Take one sip for "Irreplaceable"
Two sips for any other strong about how Beyonce is a strong independent woman

I'm fine with this as long as she incorporates some local flavor into the act.
 
Kermit Ruffins, Trombone Shorty, Clint Madigan* (that may be difficult)
 
*Was really hoping they'd have The New Orleans Bingo Show do the halftime act to really freak out America.
