Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider was not happy with this year’s Super Bowl halftime show featuring Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
Snider said he felt the performances were too sexy for what was supposed to be family friendly programming by the NFL.
That’s an interesting take from the man who fought hard against attempts to censor music content back in the 1980s.
Snider took his complaint to Twitter saying, “Beginning to pole humping, ass slapping, ass shaking end. If that’s the requirements for a half-time show, none of the rock bands I know can or will do that. #justsayin.”
When this year’s Super Bowl halftime show was announced, Snider tweeted, “WTF!? @shakira and @jlo for this year’s @nfl halftime show!? Once again the great heavy music that rocks the stadiums week after week, game after game is completely ignored. I guess we don’t shake our ass enough!!”
And who does Snider think should get the halftime gig instead?
“My point about this years @NFL halftime show isn’t a slight on @shakira or @JLo, it’s frustration that week after week rock is the go to music during games but gets no respect when it comes to the Super Bowl! And I don’t think I’m popular enough for that slot. But @Metallica…” he wrote.
