Red Hot Chili Peppers are reportedly planning to cover Led Zeppellin's 'Dazed and Confused' at the 2014 Super Bowl.

The gargantuan American sporting event, which is set to take place this weekend on Sunday 2 February, features the rather odd pairing of Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

Drummer Chad Smith has told Artisan News that they will be covering 'Dazed and Confused' by rock gods Led Zeppellin. In the past they have covered 'Ramble On' by the Zep, however the reaction from fans of both bands weren't particularly great.

Bassist Flea also sent out a tweet asking: “Anybody wanna see my c–k at the Super Bowl?”, an offer that was swiftly withdrawn. He told TMZ that the NFL would "chop his head off" if he pulled any stunts like that.

Meanwhile fans of music and American football have given wildly mixed reactions to the news that Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be playing the Super Bowl Half-time show. Mars is set to perform with Red Hot Chili Peppers at XLVIII at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford NJ when the New Orleans Saints take on the Seattle Seahawks.

They'll be following in the footsteps of the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, The Rolling Stones many more who have entertained millions during the legendary half-time performance.
