#1 Bruce Springsteen 
#2 Aerosmith [With Britney Spears, NYSNC, Nelly and Mary J. Blidge, 2001]
What is this ha ha. Ravens vs. Giants, 2001.
#3 The Who 
Ask yourself if Pete Townshend or Roger Daltrey would be the kinda guys you’d see on the couch Sundays watching an American football game…probably not. The sound quality wasn’t the best, if we’re being honest. But it’s The Who! There may or may not have been, “whooo whoo, whooo whoo” crowd sing-along cues when the New Orleans Saints beat the Colts.
#4 Tom Petty 
For Giants vs. Patriots in 2008.
#5 Rolling Stones 
Steelers vs. Seahawks at Ford Field in Detroit, 2006.
#6 Slash [With Black Eyed Peas, 2011]
In 2011, the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. I’m certainly not giving Black Eyed Peas much kudos here, but at least Slash showed up for a rendition of Sweet Child O’ Mine. The 2016 show may have been the perfect excuse for Axl & Slash to plug the reunion shows…
#7 Sting [With Shania Twain & No Doubt, 2003]
Fans say Shania royally messed this one up…and that Sting & Gwen Stefani saved the show with Message in a Bottle when Tampa Bay beat Oakland (sorry Gwen).
#8 U2 
#9 Red Hot Chili Peppers [with Bruno Mars, 2014]
#10 Lenny Kravitz[ 2015]
Lenny Kravitz made a small appearance with Katy Perry during last year’s Superbowl half-time show for I Kissed a Girl.
