I'd do it...only to make Donald Wildmon and the AFA go apoplectic.

/engage Maximum Trolling XD

Yeah, we'll just ask Roger. That's the reason only the blandest acts get picked. They're the only ones that ask.
 
2013-09-17 05:00:40 PM
If that happens, I will pick up the cost for the tarps they'll need to collect all the fake blood.
 
2013-09-17 05:12:03 PM
I saw them live at the House of Blues in Orlando.  Quite a tiny venue for so many fluids.
 
2013-09-17 05:25:35 PM
Is that a wardrobe malfunction or the Cuttlefish of Cthulu?
 
2013-09-17 05:28:07 PM
Weird Al first, then we'll talk.
 
2013-09-17 05:51:57 PM
Why the Foo Fighters have never gotten the offer is beyond me.
 
2013-09-17 05:54:11 PM
Signed. GWAR is what this nation really needs right now.
 
2013-09-17 05:58:13 PM
Slayer with Justin Beiber.
 
2013-09-17 06:05:42 PM
Lol, guys I like weird al and GWAR, but deep down in your hearts of hearts, do you really believe either are relevant? Weird Al Hasn't  been in 30 years, even if you talk to his fans, he doesn't sell out venues. GWAR isn't known by like 90% of the population, if that. Half time is to sell soda and advertise movies and tv shows. You honestly think the best acts to do that is weird al & GWAR?

Weird Al at least has name recognition amongst most people.  I wouldn't pay to go see a full concert of his, but a few songs at a Superbowl halftime show is about the perfect dose.

I dunno... Weird Al's "Party at the CIA" seems to be hitting pretty close to home.

No, and that's why it needs to happen.

I don't get GWAR. Their only claim to fame is their costumes, which have been done before and better by other bands. Their music is mediocre at best and the lead guy comes off as a gigantic douche every time he opens his mouth for an interview.

But people need their spectacle I suppose..
 
2013-09-17 06:18:39 PM
I would watch the halftime show if GWAR played it.

Esroc: I don't get GWAR.


Fixed that for you.  Cat must have jumped up on the keyboard and hit a bunch of other letters after the only part of what you said that made sense.
 
2013-09-17 06:32:22 PM
As much awesome as it would be, it would never happen. Ever.
1) Heavy Metal
2) Horror
3) Blood

Americans love their watered down, misogynistic, idiot pop music. Which is why we put up with Bruno Mars, Beyonce (even as hot as she is), and the rotting corpses of the Who (what a terrible performance). Sadly, we'll have something called a Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus inflicted upon us in the halftime show before GWAR or any other hard rock / metal band.

That being said, I would vote for Gojira before GWAR any day. Nothing says American football like French Heavy Metal.
 
2013-09-17 06:32:31 PM
Gwar is actually an amazing band who I think might have made it bigger if they dropped the whole costume thing but that's their thing so I can understand it. They really are very talented musicians though.

That being said.. While it might be funny to see them do the Super Bowl it's NEVER going to happen.

I could see weird Al doing it someday though, just go way overboard with it like they did with Madonna and it could be awesome.

Weird Al will always be relevant because he parodies what's popular.

His last album reached #9 on Billboard's charts. His Lady Gaga parody video has something like 14 million hits on Youtube.

He's also ridiculously entertaining live.

YES you and 200 middle aged metal head men, which defeats the purpose of the half time show

Prince was great, and had that demon penis guitar bit, Tom Petty was solid, and the Madonna show was entertaining just because of how big they went with it.

Didn't KISS do a superbowl once?
 
2013-09-17 06:54:41 PM
I'm sure they'll choose someone like Deadmau5 instead.
 
2013-09-17 06:54:58 PM
My cousin is the new guitarist. Just saying.
 
2013-09-17 06:55:08 PM
Somebody forward this to 4chan and reddit.  With our unholy might combined we3 will piss on the laws of reality and make this happen.

Oh god I want the second half of the superbowl to include multiple players slipping on the pools of fluids dotting the astroturf.  This NEEDS to happen.

They do ArenaBowls now. Then they bought a team.

I might actually watch football if they had GWAR or anything other than the "let's pump sunshine and mediocrity up your ass" entertainment they usually at the half-time.

5FDP, Sepultra, GWAR, Gojira, Pantera, Slipknot, hell, even Slayer or Judas Priest would be better than watching the crappy "wholesome family-friendly entertainment" they've been pumping out of the music/movie industry.

THIS MUST HAPPEN!!!

Well, whatever it takes to get Arena Football to catch on.  I watch a game every now and again.  It seems like it could be a good development league for players that aren't quite NFL ready, but capable of getting there with enough practice time.

If they ever do a hard rock or metal band, it's going to have to be a group that actually has some melody, screaming and thrash guitar aren't ever going to make it.

Judas Priest would work, as would Motorhead, AC/DC, Megadeth, Metallica, or Iron Maiden.

It would be Metallica and they'll stick to their Bob Rock era crap.

I got the shiat kicked out of me in Jr High school by the original Balsac. Beat the living hell out of me.

Motorhead would be an awesome superbowl half time show.

i vote for Fantomas. Or Fantomas/Melvins Big Band. That was the best show I've ever been to.

GWAR?  What kind of silly hipster shiat is that?

It would never happen but if I'm sure they'd give a shout out to Fark and play Gorgor if we made it happen.

True.  We'll be happy to snark about their success or failure after they've taken the initiative though.  We're sort of the Monday morning quarterbacks of the greater internet community, err, communities.
