It's that time of the year, when rumours begin swirling about who will be playing the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show. 

While recently, the halftime performers have swung far more pop, it was only in 2010 that The Who took on the halftime show, and 2014 saw the Red Hot Chilli Peppers entertaining the Super Bowl crowd. 

And it turns out that the team in charge of securing the Super Bowl halftime entertainment have been wanting to get Foo Fighters for a while now.

Speaking to KROQ, Dave Grohl shared "I’ve had multiple conversations over the years with them where they say, ‘We want to have a rock and roll band. Do you think you could do it? Do you think you could do a stadium?’ I was like, ‘Yeah man, we do it all the time'".

He continued “We’re like, ‘Oh my god, I think we’re gonna do the Super Bowl!’ And then it’ll be Madonna [who played in 2012] or Katy Perry [2015] or someone like that.”


Keen to see a bit of this though:
