We all know there’s no pleasing Twitter, but the news of Bruno Mars playing the Super Bowl halftime show really got the micro-blogging site riled up – especially the New Jersey/New York contingent.

See, Super Bowl XLVIII is at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, home of the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets, and a vocal group of fans thinks one of that region’s iconic artists – especially Bruce Springsteen, Jay-Z, or Bon Jovi – should have gotten the gig instead. Of course, the Super Bowl is the most-watched TV event of the year and reaches every corner of the United States, so to choose the musical act regionally really isn’t necessary. Last year’s Bowl was in New Orleans, but Houston native Beyoncé – not, say, Harry Connick Jr. or Lil Wayne – performed during halftime.

But let’s give the Twitter masses the floor to state their case:

And these two wise guys have some non-Bruce, Jon Bon, or Jay-Z suggestions:
