When Lawrence Tynes of the New York Giants kicked that dramatic, overtime field goal in the NFC Championship Game, not only did he set up a rematch of Super Bowl XLII with the New England Patriots, but he also made a date with the one and only Madonna. “The Queen of Reinvention” will be providing this year’s halftime entertainment, joining a star-studded roster that has recently included The Who, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. I am one of millions who would rather forget that the Black Eyed Peas were at the Super Bowl last February; as will.i.am and Fergie were badly lip-syncing, I distinctly remember thinking that there are at least 10 other artists more deserving of this position and honor than BEP.

And so, as the wagering begins to intensify over who will have the best commercial, let alone which team will cover the damn spread, Consequence of Sound would like to take this opportunity to present — a themed list. What follows are 10 musical acts who we could envision belting out some of their tunes either in New Orleans, New York City, or Glendale, Arizona, the respective homes for the next three Super Bowls. Most are rational choices, while some can be construed as wishful thinking. Rather than count these down as per usual with a list, we’ve divvied things up into three categories: Dependable Divas, Veteran Rock Warriors, and for the win, Alt/Indie Hail Marys. Ready, set, hut!

Love the Lemon of Troy reference. I’d put RHCP and DMB up there as well.

Missing Foo Fighters on your list, they should take Queen’s spot on this list. Queen is not Queen without Freddie Mercury
