Janet & Justin - Super Bowl 38 - 2004
Obviously, no Super Bowl halftime show list is complete without the most infamous show to ever hit live tv...
That little 'wardrobe malfunction' happened so quick, and for such a short moment in time, it literally left ever person watching with a sense of "what just happened?"
The incident, for a long time, pretty much ruined broadcasting for both the tv and radio industries. As expected, our clueless legislator politicians started writing & passing knee-jerk censorship legislation because of one little boob.
The FCC increased fines from $2,500 per offense to $250,000 per offense... this is why you don't see anything truly awesome on network television these days. Every time someone starts pushing the envelope, the government rears their head and disdain, eventually toppling what could have been priceless entertainment.
While it took a long time to get out of the censorship woes funk of live television risks, the Super Bowl did recover. After years of stale, safe, old performers... the finally brought relevant artists back in 2011 with Slash, Black Eyed Peas, and Usher in Dallas.
