Still doubtful? Look at our list of the 12 most memorable Super Bowl halftime shows ever (and then see how many of them happened within the last 10 years).

Sylvia Woods, whose namesake soul-food restaurant has been a Harlem landmark for nearly half a century, died Thursday at her home in Westchester County, N.Y., only hours before she was to receive a special award from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, reports The New York Times.
She was 86, and although no cause of death was announced, Woods had been suffering with Alzheimer's disease the past few years. Her family said she was surrounded by loved ones at the time of her death.
"We lost a legend today," Bloomberg said Thursday, reports New York's Daily News. "Generations of family and friends have come together at what became a New York institution."
