Let's get it started in here. Or, um, something -- the point of that "joke" was to inform you that the Black Eyed Peas are officially the selection of the Super Bowl XLV in Cowboys Stadium.

It's a generally acceptable selection, I guess, because the Peas are willing to tone down their act a little for nationally televised events (see: "Let's get it started" as the NBA's theme song, even though the original words of the song were slightly different and possibly unprintable), and they're popular.

Plus, they've worked with the NFL before -- they performed at the league's kickoff last year (although if this means Dave Matthews is singing at the next Super Bowl, well, I'm out).

It's worth noting, though, that the Peas are the youngest band to take the stage for a halftime show since Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake were on stage. And, of course, we all know what happened there.

That being said, going "younger" doesn't always equate to going "better" -- even though the Peas are popular and might draw a somewhat younger demographic, they're certainly not the Rolling Stones or the Who.
