On Feb. 7, 2016, two unknown teams will battle it out for the title of the best team in the NFL. One thing we know for sure is that Coldplay will be playing in between the halves of the game and all those commercials. But not everybody is happy about it.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the NFL’s selection.
#Coldplay is playing SuperBowl50 now we really gotta worry about players with concussions falling asleep and not waking back up at half time

I respect the fact that the NFL hates it's fans. It knows we'll sit through anything during halftime #Coldplay

You want to complain about Coldplay?
At least they play actual music & actually sing.
Can't say that about 80 % of "music" today.

But not everyone is up in arms about the choice. “You want to complain about Coldplay? At least they play actual music & actually sing. Can’t say that about 80% of ‘music’ today,” tweeted @chelseamessinger.
She has a point. Maybe it’s just the dudes who are upset. In past years, we’ve had wardrobe malfunctions and lots of ladies dancing in leotards. Perhaps the guys are just not that into seeing even more guys during the halftime break. Which I totally get. But much like referee calls, the fans can sound off but it’s not going to change anything.
Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion, aka Coldplay, will be performing for us all at Levi’s Stadium in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Coldplay’s seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams, hits shelves on Friday, Dec. 4.
