    Just saw the promo on NBC's Sunday Night Football. I totally forgot that they're playing this year. Any predictions on the songs they play? And who is the next American band or act to play the at the Super Bowl? Perhaps this is a pipe dream, but one of these years I would enjoy seeing Pearl Jam.

    I was going to guess for the next American band it would be some crappy Jonas Borthers, American Idol, or something else I hate.

    I predict Won't Get Fooled Again, Who Are You, and Baba O'Reilly. My generation wouldn't seem appropriate with "Hope I die before I get old".

    Hope they can still rock. Best concert I ever saw was when they played Hilton in 1980. I saw them at the UNI dome in 82 and they weren't near as good.

    I like The Who, but I can't stand the Superbowl halftime, or pregame for that matter. Give me some ****ing football, and leave all the other crap out of it.

    Really couldn't imagine any others they would play except maybe Pinball Wizard and I Can See For Miles, but they don't fit like the others.

    I wish they would shorten up these things too. I just want to see the game.

    Maybe Hugh Fitzcairn will be there.

    Only problem with "Who Are You" is that it has a couple of F-bombs in it. I'm sure that they would/will just change the lyrics, but it totally kills the spirit of the song.

    Love Squeeze Box, but I'm guessing the innuendo is too thick for the halftime show. I'm guessing they'll go pretty watered-down.

    I tought the class on The Who for History of Rock and Roll, just a feather in my cap I like to brag about.

    They will probably play the songs everyone knows. There best song, and the song everyone has been trying to make for years, is I Can See For Miles but that won't make it because it is to slow. They will go for energy, so I'm assuming they will go in cronological order along the lines of:
    My Generation
    Baba O'Reilly
    Who Are You

    Ooh... I Can See for Miles is a fantastic song, but I have to give my favorite to Love Reign O'er Me. The timpanies at the beginning are awesome, and the orchestra is sweeping. It's also too slow for the show.

    name the last halftime show that didn't suck?? best I can really muster was getting to see a boob a few years back. other then that I can't recall anything in the past few years that wasn't aweful. U2 saving the earth one concert at a time makes me vomit, mick jagger all wrinkled and spray tanned looking like a giant old man walking around on stage, and all these classic rock shows of late are extemely tired. Honestly, I go reround on the food or do something else during the half hour or however long it takes for that thing to get over with. They need something new, like a man fighting a half dozen live bears with a pocket knife or some sort of running man variation. anything other then what they've had would be better. Maybe MTV shoud bring back the beavis and butthead halftime special!!

    So they probably won't play Fiddle About. :wideeyed:

    Seriously I would think they would play Who Are You and Won't Get Fooled Again. However, those 2 songs together are pretty long and they'd probably have to shorten up at least WGFA. They wouldn't have time for 3. They'd have to play something sorter like My Generation and Pinball Wizard to get 3 in.

    I'd love it if they played The Real Me, but that probably isn't going to happen.
