According to multiple reports, Maroon 5 will fill in the shoes of Justin Timberlake and perform at the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in Atlanta. And though the news is yet to be confirmed, NFL fans had some serious about the announcement.
Listen—ain’t nobody hating on Adam Levine and his band. They are good (or at least they were during their Songs About Jane circa). But given that Atlanta is, as we all well know, the home of dozens of successful hip hop artists—including Outkast, Future, Migos, Usher, and none other than *the* Childish Gambino— this odd decision to forego so many acts that call ATL home has collectively raised eyebrows on social media.
Because choosing Maroon 5 over Atlanta’s incredible music culture is like going to Bubba Gump Shrimp in New Orleans. Or putting a can of Pepsi on display at the World of Coke. Or eating at Olive Garden in Italy.
