With Super Bowl LII in Atlanta, people were not happy about Maroon 5 getting the halftime gig.
Twitter doesn't like anything, but Twitter was particularly salty on Wednesday after it was announced that Maroon 5 would be performing at halftime of Super Bowl LII in Atlanta.
Considering Atlanta's rich music history, many people were baffled by the selection of Maroon 5. NFL fans are also tired of the league always going with the "safe" choice for a halftime show thanks to Justin Timberlake ripping off part of Janet Jackson's top many, many years ago.
Anyway, hopefully Adam Levine stays off Twitter for a little while, because the venom was strong.
Maroon 5 are performing at a Super Bowl held in Atlanta as punishment for the Falcons blowing a 28-3 lead with less than two minutes left in the third quarter— Zito (@_Zeets) September 19, 2018
Here are a few acts I wish were playing the Super Bowl instead of Maroon 5:— Jensen Karp (@JensenKarp) September 19, 2018

Look, I get that you may not think they fit Atlanta but Maroon 5 is easily the most Super Bowl Halftime musical group of all time.— Ryan Nanni (@celebrityhottub) September 19, 2018
Putting the Super Bowl in Atlanta and then having Maroon 5 as the halftime show is like going to Italy and ordering a banana & mayo sandwich.— Dan (@AtIantaDan) September 19, 2018

If Roger Goodell was creating a band in a lab to play halftime of the Super Bowl from now until the end of time, the result would be Maroon 5— Ben Lockhart (@lockhartbp) September 19, 2018
