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.

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.

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.

Bonkthat_Again: I've said it time and time before.
Football is a testosterone driven sport. It's about toughness and pure physical domination.

My dream scenario for the superbowl is as follows:
Superbowl is held in a winter town (like this year).
Mere days before the Superbowl, the weather forecast calls for record low temperatures.
All the corporate executives get cold feet and pass their tickets to the warehouse or other low wage earners at their company.
It snows.
The sheer number of bonfires in the parking lot prohibits authorities from addressing them.
The pop halftime performer cancels due to the extreme cold. The only fill in acts they can get on short notice (who will actually play in the extreme temps, despite the risk of fingers freezing off) is Mastadon and the remaining members of the Wu-Tang Clan.


Do you have a weekly newsletter I can subscribe to?  Any plans for The World Series?

Aezetyr: 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.


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.

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.
