Carlos Santana has called out the NFL and CBS for overlooking the music that came out of the Bay Area during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which was in Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, home to the San Francisco 49ers.

The Oakland Raiders fan writes on Facebook, "Dear NFL/CBS... I feel compelled to point out to you that the Halftime Show should have included some of the local iconic bands that the world would have loved to see perform. Bands like Metallica, Steve Miller, Journey and yours truly. We would have rocked the Halftime Show and done the SF Bay Area proud. This is just an invitation for you to consider iconic bands as part of your halftime entertainment. Real live music, real live vocals, and give the audience real live chills."

Metallica did perform on Saturday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco as part of the Super Bowl festivities.
