Now we're talking!  I can't remember a better choice.
 
2013-12-23 12:08:29 AM  
Not the halftime. Just one of the lead-up concerts.
 
2013-12-23 12:09:05 AM  
So, not halftime and not at the stadium? But somewhere in NY that week? Whee. I think you can catch Billy Joel that week too.

So Weird Al got robbed again?

They need to do half time and play their cover of Prince's Darling Nikki so the circle is complete.
 
2013-12-23 01:16:44 AM  
Are they anticipating sufficient levels of Foo to warrant such a kerfuffle?
 
2013-12-23 01:44:17 AM  
I still don't know what foo is, nor why they are fighting it.  Maybe foo is on the right side in this whole thing.
 
2013-12-23 02:01:50 AM  
Welp -there goes my hero
 
2013-12-23 02:25:28 AM  
Too bad the pretender is still playing the halftime show, everlong I want the Foo at the Bowl. NFL, this is a call to get them XLIX!

Foo Fighters were UFOs commonly spotted by airmen during WWII, trailing their planes.
 
2013-12-23 03:23:33 AM  
I don't care who they trot out there I'm not watching a second of halftime the commercials. Haven't done so for 30 years. Super Bowl should be about the football not the ad buyers or Miley.
 
2013-12-23 03:44:29 AM  
Sure would suck if The Mighty Dave and Co. had Weird Al on stage for a round of whatever on accordion. Yessir and ma'am, that'd be terrible, just terrible. Mm-hm.

don't fight foo.  just go with it.

Foo Fighters, meanwhile, will team up with the Zac Brown Band for the February 1 gig.

Yay?

I don't care for country, but the Zac Brown Band puts on a great show. They're more country-rock anyway.

Remember that one Foo Fighters song that started out kinda slow and mellow, but then got more and more intense until the end where Dave was shouting the lyrics?

/seriously, though, I like Foo Fighters.  They're one of the better mainstream rock bands of the last 20 years.
//plus, Dave Grohl seems like he'd be a hella cool guy to have a couple of beers with.

I actually got to do that back when Nirvana was still functioning (in Dublin, where they'd done a show with some friends of mine at The Point). He was kind of an asshole.

/Krist Novoselic was pretty cool, though.

//Didn't get to meet Cobain.
 
2013-12-23 08:28:39 AM  
I've always heard Dave Grohl is a bit of a douchenozzle. Don't really care about half time, that's what the puppy bowl is for
 
2013-12-23 09:01:10 AM  
I'd love for them to play the half time show at the Superbowl, but the censors would need to keep their finger hovering over the dump button because Dave Grohl loves him some F-bombs.

Don't make me Grohl !

weird...this is the first & 2nd time i've ever heard negative things about grohl as a person. seriously, i've always heard he's just super nice

not that it really matters, as i'm sure i'll never get to meet him and/or have a beer with him (or a fresh pot of coffee), but i like to think that certain celebs are nice
 
2013-12-23 09:53:47 AM  
A while back I thought "The FF have been around a long time now, I wonder if they have sold more albums than Nirvana? "  Google Google, nope.  Not even close.

Loved the Foo Fighters since "The Colour and the Shape". Major regret of mine not seeing them live whenever they were a close drive from Cincy.
 
2013-12-23 10:23:59 AM  
I'm pretty sure the Super Bowl has a contract clause requiring the halftime performers to be washed up has beens that were never really all that great to begin with.

Not sure I'd call the Stones, McCartney, Springsteen, or Beyonce washed-up has-beens.

/Madonna, maybe.

"Foos" also may or may not have been also heavily pitied by Mr. T.

"Why Them?" used to be the exclusive domain of Sheryl Crow.
 
2013-12-23 02:35:34 PM  
I'm all for this under certain circumstances:

1.  Dave has to play drums the whole time and not sing
2.  Replace their current bass player with Kris Novoselik
3.  Bring Kurt back from the dead.  He can sing and play guitar.

Best Foo Fighters show ever.
 
2013-12-23 04:17:24 PM  
If only they could wait until Cobain's brithday (20th) and have Fergie come up from the ground with Dave playing the drums with a glitter bong...

/seeing her and Slash butcher 'Sweet Child' on Axl's birthday was magnificent, it was like the burial of my teenage years

New Slang:
3.  Bring Kurt back from the dead.  He can sing and play guitar.

Did he gain those abilities after he died, because he was pretty shiatty at both when he was alive.

alaric3: Who will they be playing against? I don't think they'll win.


Matchbox 20 and Collective Soul, with opening act Goo Goo Dolls.

Billed as "Battle of the Blands"..
