I liked Tom Petty too! My wife and I were happy to see a band...with actual instruments...just playing music.

It was bad. Really bad. I'm with Phil, it still beats anything without instruments, but among the instruments, that was probably the worst.

Okay I know im going to get a LOT of shit for this because i am a big Kiss fan

but either u love them or hate them, they have to be a choice sooner then later, because mainly the most popular kiss songs, are songs that everyone knows by, and id rather have an "older" band in that sense like they have being doing the last few years (U2, PM, Prince, Tom Petty) and really I think Kiss is perfect for the next job just because o the age of them and they know how to pump it up even thought of there age.

Example, Kiss at Salt Lake City Olympics

Arcade Fire should do the next Super Bowl halftime show.

Me too.

I don't get the Tom Petty hate. Even if he did lip synch, it's not like this was one of his concerts on tour! It's just Superbowl, 15 or so hurried minutes of half time entertainment. Big deal! At least we got an accomplished band playing there instead of a hodgepodge of bad artists going thru wardrobe malfunctions. Give the guy a break! He looks old but still sounds great! I think anyway...

As far as Fox is concerned, better 15 minutes of an old guy not doing anything than a split second of a veiny tit.

I thought it was great, but then again I thought Prince was terrible.

The Rolling Stones in '06 were the best halftime show of the decade.

Tom never lip synched in his performance.

... as well as the various people everywhere who thought he lip synched. I couldn't tell if he did or didn't (those definitely weren't the studio versions playing... were they other live versions? I dunno..) but I'm just saying it doesn't matter. Doesn't bother me. I enjoyed his performance.

The rumor is that it was pre-recorded, not the studio version.

Free Fallin' was great and the guitar solo at the end. Other than that it was just average.
