From the article:
Since forming in 1995, The Black Eyed Peas have sold more than 28 million albums worldwide and nearly 31 million digital tracks. Their new album, "The Beginning," is set for release Tuesday.
I was in high school when they released their first album, so although they're definitely younger than last year's performers The Who, they're not exactly hip.
Wikipedia has a nice list of all the halftime shows since the very first one in 1967. It wasn't until the 1990s that they started having major entertainers doing the performing (and even then some of those "major" entertainers weren't all that major).
Join me after the jump for my list of the best Super Bowl Halftime shows of all time.
This was the best half-time show of all time in my opinion. The list of the 9/11 victims being displayed while U2 sang "Where the Streets Have No Name" sent chills up my back.
2009--Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
I'm a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen. BTW, he's got a special edition set of Darknes on the Edge of Town that he's released if anyone wants to get me an early Christmas present.
Prince is a hugely underrated guitarist. (If you don't believe me check out his guitar solo of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" from the 2004 Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame performance)
2000--Big Bad VooDoo Daddy (and others)
This one makes the list simply because of their performance. Anyone who loves good music needs to check them out.
This video has some quality problems, but it's worth looking past it for the goodness that is the Blues Brothers
