If Bruno Mars is a little too hip for you, perhaps this report in the Los Angeles Times will excite you.

With Mars already set to head up the halftime show at Super Bowl XXLVIII, the paper is reporting that he's asked the Red Hot Chili Peppers to perform with him because, in part, the RHCP, would "appeal to older viewers."

("Older viewers?!?" exclaimed everybody who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s who couldn't escape RHCP whenever the radio was turned onto your city's alternative-rock station.)

Yes, older viewers. As the AV Club notes, "While the majority of people who like the Red Hot Chili Peppers probably aren't rocking chair-ready just yet, it's worth noting that both Flea and Anthony Kiedis are 51 years old, making them absolutely eligible to receive all the discounted coffee and driving safety courses AARP membership allows. Drummer Chad Smith is 52, putting him that much closer to death and 4 p.m. dinner."

Hopefully all those RHCP fans will survive long enough to see the band perform next month.
