The thing about playing an electric guitar is you need electricity in order to play it!

But there were NO wires coming out of any of the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s instruments during their Super Bowl Halftime Show with Bruno Mars on Sunday!

After all the accusations from fans saying they were faking it, bass player Flea is ready to admit that they were indeed just playing air guitar up there!

He posted an explanation though as to WHY the band didn’t plug in for their big performance.

He’s blaming the NFL! Apparently it was the league that wanted the band to pre-record their musical track and only have Anthony singing live!

In a wordy message on RHCP’s web site, he explained:

Not too bad at all!

Bruno Mars hit the end zone with his stellar Super Bowl XLVIII halftime performance.

Bruno drummed, danced, and crooned his way through his hits Locked Out Of Heaven, Treasure, and Just The Way You Are.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' guest appearance can't even be compared to Destiny's Child 's reunion last year, but their performance of Give It Away did make for a nice 90s throwback moment.

Ch-ch-check out the ultra energetic show (above)!

Saturday Night Live kept with their trend this year of cold opens, and this one was Super Bowl themed.

The halftime show got a fancy update, complete with third-time host Melissa McCarthy as Momma Pass!

Honestly, we would be TOTALLY okay if this was a part of the real halftime show! In addition to Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers of course!

Then, for her opening monologue, Melissa and Bobby Moynihan had an aerial battle

If Bruno Mars wasn’t enough to get you to watch Super Bowl XLVIII, then this will be!

It has been leaked that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are also going to be performing during the halftime show on February 2nd!

The official announcement is expected to happen when the New Orleans Saints play the Seattle Seahawks today.

We are SO hoping that the RHCP wear their trademark c*ck socks, but since the game will be outdoors in New Jersey, we wouldn’t bet on it.

Oh ya, and that whole “television” thing might keep them clothed too. LOLz!

Either way, we can’t wait to see them play with Bruno!

The drummer took to Twitter to apologize, writing:
