As some of you may have already heard, Nickelback is supposedly performing at the Detroit “Rock City” Lions and Green Bay Packers Thanksgiving day halftime show. There is already a petition in the works to replace them. Online petitions, Facebook polls and groups have tried to change music lineups and performers at important events, but I can count zero times I know of that it’s worked.  Might be in a jam here football fans.

While this may not be a big deal to many of you, especially those of you who know how to use a remote control, I thought it’d be interesting to compile list of performers that are arguably more talented and that I’d rather see, just in case the NFL sees this and comes to me for suggestions.

  • The Baha Men (Who let the dogs out)
  • Rebecca Black
  • The Jefferson Middle School band
  • Susan Boyle
  • Bros dancing to dubstep
  • Carl Lewis singing the national anthem
  • Cats meowing
  • A slide show of hand turkeys drawn by a local elementary school
  • A mime in a box
  • The America Online dial up sound
  • A rubber chicken on a string
  • Melissa Etheridge
  • A fax machine
  • Interpretative dancing to Dave Mathews Band
  • A hamster on a wheel
  • A toy monkey banging cymbals
  • Nancy Grace ballroom dancing
  • An extended trailer for Adam Sandler’s new movie “Jack and Jill”
  • An exorcism…
