The National Football League: Allow GWAR to perform the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show

    1. Jeff Cantrell
    2. Petition by

      Jeff Cantrell

      Morehead, KY

 

The time for GWAR to address the nation is NOW.

Every year people complain about who the halftime show is going to feature, now we are telling you who we want: WE WANT GWAR in 2015!

Why should articles like "Bruno Mars Announced For Super Bowl Halftime Show, Gwar Waits Until Next Year (Again)" (from Screen Junkies) be a joke?

We don't want another year of sitting around talking through a muted, boring NFL Super Bowl halftime show. We want something different. We want a real spectacle that only GWAR can provide. Doesn't the NFL want more viewers? Don't advertisers want more people paying attention? This way everyone wins.

Plus, GWAR's relationship with American football is one of the strongest in music. Front man Dave Brockie writes a football column for MetalSucks.com called "Necessary Roughness" even the "The Dan Patrick Show" has an Oderous mask on display. It's been suggested by Sports Illustrated that GWAR should become mascots!

NFL must listen to the people. GWAR is more American than apple pie.

Please sign, share, and show your support.

To:
Greg Aiello, Senior Vice President of Communications for the NFL
Allow GWAR to perform the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Sincerely,
[Your name]
