Pop culture icon and teen heartthrob Van Halen wants to play the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show.

Lead singer, David Lee Roth published an open letter saying that they weren't offered the show but they would "accept in a NY minute."

The letter read:

An Open Letter

I'm compelled to address the now-rampant rumors that Van Halen is playing the Superbowl. First of all let me say this - be still my pigskin heart. That honor has not been bestowed upon us at this time though it is one we would accept in a NY minute.

Having heard VH blaring through stadium speakers on any given Sunday - more like every given Sunday, the idea of playing there live would be like - 'okay, now we're in the game'.

Van Halen's collective memories are - and with all due respect to each and every one of these memories, teeming with been-theres and done-that's, but none include playing at the Superbowl. Playing at the Superbowl is a veritable holy grail of musical recognition, a highly prized rite of passage for (game-changing) artists. Not a spiritual rite with snake pits or Hebrew school or anything, but it's up there.

We are not on Commissioner Goodell's dance card at this time, but we would be most honored to dance the halftime away in New Orleans.

It's an honor to be considered and for that we would like to thank the rumormongers all over the World Wide Web.

- D-Ro

So it seems like it was just some random rumors (possibly started by Roth himself.)

Looks like they really want to play the Super Bowl.

They are rock legends, but do they still have the fan base to rock the Super Bowl??

Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
