Forget the Black Eyed Peas and Madanna, it looks like the NFL is planning to return to Super Bowl halftime acts that feature old, washed up rock and roll bands. Today we learned the NFL is close to announcing Van Halen as their halftime headliner for the next Super Bowl.
It looks like Van Halen will headline the next Super Bowl halftime show, having nudged out Petula Clark.

We were actually surprised to see that a ton of people would be extremely excited to see Van Halen at the Super Bowl. Which once again proves the NFL knows the majority of their audience loves themselves some classic rock music.
VAN HALEN AT THE SUPER BOWL!!!! Looks like there will finally be a good halftime show again. Haven't had one in years…

Van Halen might perform at the Super Bowl halftime show? I would finally watch the halftime show if this is the case.

IF and if is a big word when it comes to Van Halen, if they do play the Super Bowl, that would kick ass. Sorry Madonna, Black Eyed P's fans

If Van Halen is playing the Super Bowl, surely that means they'll perform Right Now & hand out Crystal Clear Pepsi for every great American.
