This year the NFL has turned the Wayback Machine to "The Who" for its annual Super Bowl halftime tribute to musical acts that were popular even before I started following popular music.

What will the boys be playing? Pete Townshend tells Billboard here.

The plan is a little of this and a little of that in a medley of some of the band's greatest hits.

No word yet on the Super Bowl XLV halftime show for next year. But sources tell me the finalists are Chuck Berry and Little Richard.
