Last night VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz came to a close. The six night concert series bounced from borough to borough, night after night counting down to Super Bowl XLVIII. J. Cole, Fall Out Boy, and TLC were just three of the acts that came out to hype us up for the Big Game and create some memorable music moments along the way.
Super Bowl Blitz
Gavin DeGraw stormed Montclair, New Jersey for VH1’s last night of Super Bowl Blitz. The two time Grammy nominated singer and songwriter was the final act in our jam packed six night concert series. A marching band kicked the festivities off and Gavin opened with his single, “In Love With A Girl.”
The Super Bowl hits today with a giant wallop of testosterone, from the on-field battling to the at-home screaming to the face-painting to the cheap beer and nachos. Of course, that doesn’t stop us from piling on even more masculine energy with this list of the greatest rock and metal stadium anthems. Whether you’re rooting for Seattle or Denver to triumph in the end, or you just don’t care at all, there’s at least one song on this list that you’ve cared about at some point in your life. And while these songs have been played at stadiums of all sports ad nauseam and can now be considered quite Velveeta-cheesy, they’re still some of the most motivating, inspiring and adrenaline-rushing songs we’ve ever known. From AC/DC to Queen to The White Stripes, they’ve all hit us hard with melodies and messages of hope, belief and victory. So to celebrate Super Bowl XLVIII, here’s a list of the 10 Greatest Rock & Metal Jock Jams of all time – songs that are the musical equivalent of a kick in the pants. Hope you’re wearing your cup.

All week long, VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz has been gearing us up for Sunday’s Super Bowl XLVIII. The six night concert series stopped off in Brooklyn on Wednesday night to feature rock band Fall Out Boy. The band surprised the Brooklyn Bowl crowd when they brought out Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams to join them for their hit song, “Sugar, We’re Going Down.” We caught up with Pete Wentz and Hayley backstage to ask them about music and of course, football.
VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz has been going strong all week long as musicians, J. Cole, Janelle Monáe, Fall Out Boy and TLC have brought their talents and high spirits to boroughs all over New York.

Buffalo natives, the Goo Goo Dolls stormed Staten Island and brought the crowd to their feet for the entire 12-song jam session.
Bruno Mars won big at this year’s Grammy Awards, taking home the Best Pop Vocal Album for 2012’s Unorthodox Jukebox. He’ll be filling your Sunday TV screens and Twitter feeds again this weekend, as the official Super Bowl Halftime Show performer. He’s huge on stage, yes, but have you seen him off-screen?
Gavin DeGraw is all set to close out VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz–but do we have his set list? Justin Bieber may be in a lot of hot water right now, but he is about to brave the cold New York weather to watch the Super Bowl? Can you match your favorite celeb with their favorite Super Bowl snack?
