The halftime show at this years Super Bowl with the Red Hot Chili Peppers put Axl Rose in a bit of a fit.
As RHCP bassist Flea admitted, the bands instruments were not plugged in for the performance. Anthony Keidis’ vocals were live, but due to tight time constraints and concern that something might go wrong, the NFL’s conditions stated that music would be pre-recorded.
Rock legend and Guns N’ Roses frontman, Axl Rose, sounded off in an op-ed piece for Billboard where he mocked the bands performance, saying that the Chili Peppers, “may have set a new world record for the largest karaoke audience ever! Awesome!”
As always Twitter reacted to this, but we’re still wondering why Axl Rose is even relevant.
Nobody asked, but here’s what Axl Rose has to say about the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Super Bowl http://t.co/RO7jJMquGW

Is this the newest rock and roll feud? Maybe they’ll have videos on MTV a la the Vince Neil v. Axl Rose dispute from the late 80’s.
And I quote “Maybe they all had microchips installed in their asses”? Axl vs Flea, who wins? http://t.co/vN6FD683gf via @RollingStone — Bobby Yang (@bobbyyang) February 5, 2014
Everyone’s IQ is dropping.
Flea’s response was intelligent. But after reading what Axl said, I just feel dumber #putz http://t.co/8zW5Ryk7w0 — GiantBlueOlympicRing (@GiantBlueRing) February 5, 2014
Just how long is Axl’s enemy list??
Just checked Axl Rose’s Enemies list. Flea is right there on page 4.

Anymore, anything involving Axl results in a weird day.
When Axl Rose starts talking about microchips and asses 1st thing in the morning, you know it’s gonna be a weird day: http://t.co/kcblQUqb1d

#Bridgegate references are still appropriate and actually seem to fit.

The whole thing really is adorable though.
Axl Rose, fronting a fake Guns N’Roses for 15 years, feels qualified to mock the Chili Peppers for Sunday. Cute. http://t.co/QcLplRiJ89
