One of the biggest criticisms in the wake of Super Bowl XLIV focused on the halftime show, which featured a couple of guys whom we vaguely recall openly choosing death before old age.

Apparently, not every birthday wish comes true.

So will the trend toward rockers-who-need-walkers continue, or will the event again skew a bit younger?

The next Super Bowl will be televised by FOX, and the guy who runs the show there recently was asked whether the halftime show will feature performers under the age of 60.

"Oh, please, God, yes," FOX Sports Chief Executive David Hill told Joe Flint of the Los Angeles Times. "If I saw [Who guitarist] Pete Townshend's belly again I was going to throw up. In his younger days it might have been rippling muscle, but now it's like mine -- rippling fat. From the conversations I've had with the NFL, we won't need oxygen."

Generally, it's good news. Then again, there are plenty of younger acts that, well, suck.

We're officially pulling for Green Day, which would fit nicely with the perceived marijuana epidemic among incoming rookies.

Can we also say NO to teen bobbers and voice synthesizers?

Finding someone that will appease the masses just means it will be a band that's terrible.

If they get Kesha/Lady Gaga/Beyonce/etc I'm going to throw up.

I would LOVE to see a Muse halftime show. If they insist on going rap/hip hop then at least get someone like Cudi/Lupe Fiasco/etc, instead of insert random autotune artist

If they go younger and hipper I think they should have joint performances....

If you want hip-hop you have to choose someone like Jay-Z, He has recognition and will be responsible enough to have a performance that won't make the NFL & Fox nervous.

Then you have a band like Daughtry, or Nickelback. Finally you could go with some female pop or R&B artist. There is a lot of them that could fit the role

I mean, I see what you're saying. They have to be cautious after the Janet Jackson thing, but PLEASE NO at any current "pop" stars like Gaga or Kesha. I flat out won't watch the halftime show if that happens. I would be fine with Jay-Z though.

We all have to resign ourselves to the fact that current popular music is fuging terrible and if one of those artists does the halftime show, while it will appease the masses, it will make quite a few of us tune out.
