Many know Imagine Dragons from commercials

Most of the television-watching populace is familiar with with their hook-laden, soulless music that is commonly used to shill phones, cars and other popular consumer items.

But when they took the stage Monday night, people were caught off guard as they were presented as an actual band.

Fans at the stadium weren’t forced to endure the noise. They were spared the show that actually took place on an island about 45 minutes away from Levi’s Stadium.

But people at home watched on TV. And they weren’t pleased.














The performance was given a jolt of hope when Lil Wayne arrived on stage. But all that really accomplished was an opportunity for people to make fun of his attire.


Which prompted comparisons to the Hamburgler.


And raised one very legitimate question.


It made some pine for the appearance of any other dragon.


And prompted a very good suggestion for 2020.


Maybe the Super Bowl will be better.

Oh, wait. No chance.
