Maroon 5 officially is set to perform at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta next February. The news of course was met with mixed reactions from ATLiens, music fans and skeptics alike.
No disrespect to Maroon 5 as everyone universally agrees that Songs About Jane is a 2000s classic and that PJ Morton and Adam Levine have made dope music but considering this was the NFL in Atlanta, the NFL missed out on a prime opportunity to have a big-time ATL musical blowout for the Super Bowl.
We know OutKast wouldn’t have done the big game as Kast originally turned down the 2004 Super Bowl Halftime show that eventually went to Janet Jackson. But there was no room for these acts?
– Jermaine Dupri
– Lil Jon
Not to mention Gucci Mane or Future! It could have been harmonious in the A inside Mercedes Benz Stadium. Instead … it’s Maroon 5. And no disrespect to Maroon 5.
