The Who's Super Bowl performance to be on Rock Band post-game

In what promises to be one of the better (read: less teeny-boppery) Super Bowl halftime shows of recent years, The Who will be performing this Sunday as the New Orleans Saints take on the Indianapolis Colts. Rock Band fans might want to listen closely to Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend's performance, as MTV Games and Harmonix have announced that "a special recording of the performance" will be available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii's marketplaces shortly after the conclusion of the Super Bowl. By "special," we're assuming they mean "previously recorded so as to not make Harmonix developers go insane with a one-hour track creation deadline."

The halftime performance, entitled "The Who Super Bowl S-mashup," will be available for $2 on all three services. According to a Reuters interview the track will include portions of "Pinball Wizard," "Tommy," "Who Are You," and "Won't Get Fooled Again."
