Dee Snider Affiliated Petition for AC/DC to Play the SuperBowl has Nearly 30K Signatures!

As we previously reported, Heavy Metal legend Dee Snider has helped launch a Change.org petition to get the NFL to hire classic rock legends and recently reunited AC/DC to perform at the SuperBowl Halftime show. Originally started by a fan, Gina Di Lecce, the petition grew from fan outcry and Dee’s criticism on social media following this year’s halftime show performance from Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. Heavy music is used constantly in sports, especially the NFL. Famously rock and metal bands such as Metallica, Foo Fighters, Avenged Sevenfold, and Guns N Roses (2020) have all performed on the NFL’s pre-game concert the day before. Anyone performing at the big game performs for free and must pre-record and lip-sync their performance, which is why some groups like Metallica have said definitely no to performing, while The Red Hot Chili Peppers infamously made fun of themselves lip-synching in 2014, with Flea being the most notorious culprit. They also were a guest of Bruno Mars and not a headliner themselves that night. The last real rock act to perform at the SuperBowl Halftime Show was The Who in 2010.  in 2009. Anyway, sign the petition and let’s unite for rock and metal at The SuperBowl!

Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Launches Petition for AC/DC to Play the SuperBowl Halftime Show

Heavy Metal legend Dee Snider has launched a Change.org petition to get the NFL to hire classic rock legends and recently reunited AC/DC to perform at the SuperBowl Halftime show. This sprung from Dee’s criticism on social media following this year’s halftime show performance from Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. Dee didn’t find fault as much with the artists but the insulting lack of rock or metal. Heavy music is used constantly in sports, especially the NFL where both ‘Hells Bells’ by AC/DC and Metallica’s ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ were heard early in the broadcast. Famously rock and metal bands such as Metallica, Foo Fighters, Avenged Sevenfold and this year Guns N Roses have all performed on the NFL’s pre-game concert the day before. Anyone performing at the big game performs for free and must pre-record and lip-sync their performance, which is why some groups like Metallica have said no, while The Red Hot Chili Peppers infamously clowned around and made fun of themselves lip-synching. Anyway, sign the petition and let’s unite for rock and metal at The SuperBowl!
