Dee Snider calls out NFL for ignoring ‘heavy music’ for Super Bowl halftime show: ‘No respect’

The NFL made a big announcement on Thursday when it revealed that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will be the performers at Super Bowl LIV in 2020. But Dee Snyder is not on board with the booking and called out the league for ignoring “heavy music.”

The Twisted Sister frontman took to Twitter just after the two performers were publicly confirmed to express that the genre of music that “rocks the stadiums week after week, game after game is completely ignored.” The reason why, he theorized, is because rock musicians “don’t shake our a** enough!”

Snider went on to say that his comment wasn’t a “slight” on either of the women chosen for the performance. Instead, he wrote that he was just expressing his frustration.

According to the responses that his tweets amassed, many agree with his point.

It wasn’t the first time that Snider has aired his grievances over Super Bowl halftime shows. During Maroon 5’s performance for the 2019 Super Bowl, Snider tweeted a list of popular songs played during football games, all of which were from the rock genre.

“NONE of those bands have EVER played half-time show!” he tweeted.

Still, people defended the NFL’s choice to have two Latina artists headline the performance at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Feb. 2, 2020.
