"two years after Janet Jackson's notorious halftime show breast-flashing incident, the Stones dropped words to two of the songs for the ABC-TV telecast."

"During the coda of "Start Me Up," the vocals suddenly went silent as Jagger sang what "you make a dead man" do, and a wink-wink pun involving a rooster-chicken metaphor was omitted near the start of "Rough Justice."

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said after the show that earlier in the week Jagger agreed to the NFL's request that he skip those lyrics. "It's a collaborative discussion, and he agreed that he probably should not sing those particular words," McCarthy said. "They were fine with it." (Why Jagger would even bother singing, "You make a dead man" is anyone's guess.)"

Still, if he's not going to sing it, why is he singing it?

He also didn't say the line "You're not a real man if you don't smoke." in "Can't Get No Satisfaction."
