Dee Snider Calls Fans to Action: Let’s Get AC/DC For the Super Bowl
Twisted Sister icon Dee Snider wants to bring the rock back to the Superbowl halftime show, and he has a plan.
Snider is encouraging his fan base to sign a petition launched by Change.org to get AC/DC to rock the Superbowl 55 halftime show in 2021.
“[I]t’s been a very long time that a hard rock band, a real rock band has been represented at the halftime show,” Snider says in a video message directed to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and rapper Jay Z, whose Roc Nation agency organizes the musical performances at the football league’s events. “And I think that it’s time.”
The petition has a goal of 750,000 signatures, and Snider believes there are plenty of fans that wanna rock.
“There are a lot of bands that are stadium worthy,” he continued. “There are a lot of bands that have tons of hits, have sold…hundreds of millions of records. But the one band that I think has such crossover appeal to so many people in all genres, pretty much everybody loves AC/DC.”
“[T]hey would bring down the house,” Dee concluded. “Think about it, when that hell’s bell gets struck, they start playing ‘Thunderstruck’ and the stadium is screaming, ‘Thunder!’ Just think about it, ‘For Those About to Rock,’ ‘You Shook Me All Night Long,’…”Back in Black.” I could keep going. But people love AC/DC.”
