Abandon all hope of a "Weird Al" Super Bowl Halftime show ... 'cause the 4-time Grammy nominee tells TMZ Sports it's NEVER gonna happen ... despite hardcore support from the fans.
Before the big game, more than 100,000 people signed a petition begging the NFL to select Yankovic as halftime entertainment at Super Bowl XLIX.
But the NFL went with Katy Perry instead -- and Al tells us he doesn't ever see the league offering him the gig.
"It would be fun, but I don't think I'll ever be on the NFL's short list," Al says ... "It's not gonna happen."
Hey, it's the NFL's loss.
