If you had the power to choose the performer of Super Bowl XLIX (that's the one in 2015), why wouldn't you seize the opportunity to disrupt the disgusting trend of geriatric rock and lame pop stars? Unfortunately, this year's halftime performance is pre-scheduled to be muted thanks to frolicking leprechaun Bruno Mars' scheduled concert, but horror metal icons GWAR are prepping a campaign to get themselves into Arizona's University of Phoenix Stadium in 2015. The group has set up a petition on Change.org, where they state:
"The time for GWAR to address the nation is NOW.
Every year people complain about who the halftime show is going to feature, now we are telling you who we want: WE WANT GWAR in 2015!
Why should articles like "Bruno Mars Announced For Super Bowl Halftime Show, Gwar Waits Until Next Year (Again)" (from Screen Junkies) be a joke?
We don't want another year of sitting around talking through a muted, boring NFL Super Bowl halftime show. We want something different. We want a real spectacle that only GWAR can provide. Doesn't the NFL want more viewers? Don't advertisers want more people paying attention? This way everyone wins.
Plus, GWAR's relationship with American football is one of the strongest in music. Front man Dave Brockie writes a football column for MetalSucks.com called "Necessary Roughness" even the "The Dan Patrick Show" has an Oderous mask on display. It's been suggested by Sports Illustrated that GWAR should become mascots!
NFL must listen to the people. GWAR is more American than apple pie."
You bet your ass we signed. Didn't we experience enough horror during last year's mid-game show?
Experience the glorious possibilities...
