Remember When You Were Young

The WhoWell, another Super Bowl has come and gone, and with it another performance by a legendary rock group at the halftime show. Now, there are those who complain that only “safe” acts are ever invited to play the game — but once upon a time, they used to be considerably wilder. As a reminder, here are some of the signature original 20th Century live performances of the established halftime hits of the 21st. Oh, and for those of you who expected a Syd Barrett tribute playlist when you read the title — sorry to disappoint you, but we’ll save that one for another day.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band — Born to Run
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers — I Won’t Back Down
Prince and the Revolution — Purple Rain
The Rolling Stones — (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
Paul McCartney and Wings — Live and Let Die
Janet Jackson — Rhythm Nation
The Police — Message in a Bottle
U2 — Where The Streets Have No Name
