    I'd try to find a way to get the original Guns N Roses together but since that would never happen.

    How bout Janet Jackson? :rolleyes:

    I thought it was good this year. Atleast they didn't pick some stupid emo band.

    And go dig up Mark Sandman, I'm sure he'd resurrect for a show that big.

    Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake. I'd love to see what would happen if you got those two together on a stage.

    The thing I hated most about MTV's half time shows:

    they try to be "edgy", but suck so badly at it that you can't help but feel shame for watching.

    I forget who said it, but I like the dogs cathing frisbees idea.
     
  9. Primus and Slayer :) Two of my favorites.

    AC/DC or Motorhead. Good adrenaline-pumping music to get you going.
     
  12. Buddy Holly might get some interest. :bag:

    Well, technically, this lineup would be impossible, but...
    Mahavishnu Orchestra/Frank Zappa/YES and Weather Report to close it off. Of course, most 'bowlers would have left by then.

    I was perfectly happy with Paul, but if I could have added another band...what about Lynyrd Skynyrd to give it that down home Southern feel to the halftime show. Maybe even a cameo from local legends Matanzas??? :)

    Clutch or Opeth. Both would probably get the same dumbfounded reaction.
     
  20. Hmm a halftime act Dude I think no act can top off Janet Jackson
