Dee Snider of Twisted Sister wants to see heavy music represented at next year’s Super Bowl halftime show

Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has long been a champion of hard rock and heavy metal music, and now, Snider has his sights set on bringing real rock ‘n’ roll back to the Super Bowl halftime show in 2021. Snider is asking fans to sign an online petition at Change.org asking to get the NFL to bring AC/DC to perform at the next Super Bowl.

Snider put a video message on his Instagram page discussing why he thinks the Australian hard rock band would be the perfect fit to rock the Super Bowl 55 halftime show.

“It’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 his video message, which is made to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and rapper Jay Z, whose Roc Nation agency books the musical acts for the NFL’s events. “And I think that it’s time.”

Snider added, “There are a lot of bands that are stadium worthy. 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.”

Snider also says an AC/DC performance “would bring the house down,” stating, “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.”

The last time the Super Bowl halftime show featured a rock act as the main performer was The Who back in 2010. Find Snider’s online petition here.
