I thought he and his band were the perfect characters for A Super Bowl Flo-Max commercial.

Metallica would have been much better choice.

Overrated Springsteen was BORING for anyone under the age of 50. The man can't hold a candle to Neil Diamond or Tom Petty.

Do people really buy this guys recordings?

God Bless American and the National Anthem were beautifully done tonight.

As far as Superbowl performances go, it was the best ever but for a Springsteen performance, it lacked energy.

While I'm happy for all his success, I have mixed feelings about the commercialization of Bruce.

I think the show was great. Sure he may have sounded like he was short of breath at some time, but the give the guy a break how old is he 50? Anyway I think The Boss is amazing and he should live on!!

Well for those who say Bruce Sucks or for him to give it up...He puts on a 3-3 1/2 hour show every concert and nothing but energy....Ohhh and one hell of a guitarist ....Before you speak go check out his early stuff!

I thought it was a decent performance, but... I mean come on. We haven't had a good half time show in a while. Everything's getting a little too cautious what with the wardrobe malfunction and all.

BTW, nice crotch shot when he slid into the cameraman.
