With Super Bowl LIIIVXIIICLXM on the horizon, it’s time for you to crown the best Super Bowl Halftime Show ever.
And I truly mean you. I’m not a football guy, an NFL guy, or a Super Bowl guy. Sure, I’ve sat through my fair share of The Most Important American Cultural Event of the Year over the years, but I just don’t have the attention span for it. Watching an NFL game is like having ADD, from what I’ve been told by those close to me who’ve been diagnosed with ADD. Adding Super Bowl ads to the mix is like giving ADD PEDs.
That being said, when the act is an interesting one, I’ll check out the Halftime Show. Sometimes live during the game, other times online the morning after. I feel like, next to each year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee announcement, who’s playing the Halftime Show is the most polarizing popular music subject in America. Both leading up to, during, and after the performance.
What’s the Best Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever? Pick Your Fave!
Here’s the deal: I’ve done the research, but I need you to do the rest. Starting with Michael Jackson’s Big Game performance during the Bills-Cowboys matchup in January of 1993, I’ve identified what I believe to be the biggest Halftime Show spectacles of the last 30 years. Scroll through my list below, then vote for your favorite.
And again, since this isn’t my area of expertise, I’m leaning on you. After you vote, hit the ROCK 92.9 Facebook page to tell me why you chose the performance you chose. Or, if there’s a year I left off (apologies to ’94’s “Rockin’ Country Sunday” with Clint Black and Tanya Tucker), you can holler at me about that, too. We’re ROCK 92.9, so I’ve focused mainly on the “rock” acts that have performed over the years. OK, let’s kick this off! See what I did there? Football terminology!
