Dee Snider did not like what he saw during Sundays Super Bowl halftime show.
The Twisted Sister frontman criticized Jennifer Lopez and Shakira for what he considered too sexy performances for the NFLs family-friendly audience, and insisted a rock band would have brought a different vibe.
Beginning to pole humping, ass slapping, ass shaking end. If thats the requirements for a half-time show, none of the rock bands I know can or will do that. #justsayin, Snider tweeted Sunday night.

Lopez arrived on a stripper pole, shimmied and belted out several songs, including Jenny From the Block.
NFL ✔ @NFL That was incredible, @jlo + @shakira! 👏 #PepsiHalftime #SBLIV

Snider was apparently upset about the performances all night, and took to Twitter again this morning to let off more steam.
This time he responded to a Boston sports fan who called for the rocker to headline next years show, adding that hes sure the longtime performer could climb the pole too. Sniders response: Yes but I refuse to shake my ass or let someone slap it on stage!
Dee Snider ✔ @deesnider Yes...but I refuse to shake my ass or let someone slap it on stage! @NFL https://twitter.com/billsimnnons/status/1224283283749580802
Boston Sports Guy @BillSimnnons @deesnider is good enough for @Facebook

And Im pretty sure he can climb the pole too.

Its not surprising Snider disapproved of Lopez and Shakiras high-octane set.
In September after the NFL announced the two Latin superstars would be headlining the show, he voiced his anger on social media.
WTF!? @shakira and @jlo for this years @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 dont shake our ass enough!! Snider tweeted on September 26.

After cooling down a bit, he returned to the subject and insisted rock gets no respect.
My point about this years @NFL halftime show isnt a slight on @shakira or @JLo, its 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 dont think Im popular enough for that slot. But @Metallica
Hes not going to take it.
Tom Petty was the last halftime show I watched.
THAT was what halftime shows should be like
Watching 20 guys jumping around a butt shaking woman is what the elites want. It’s 3rd world.
While Snider and many others wished for a different show, the NFL obviously was perfectly fine with it. J Lo and Shakira have been a** shaking and pole humping for as long as theyve been in the music biz. Nobody can possibly be surprised by the show they put on.
Did not see it. my elderly neighbor lady said it was disgusting. She said that there was not enough clothing to cover the backsides of the women in question. I kiddingly said that the male audience might have liked it. Did not know there was a pole dance too! Oh boy did the Superbowl Halftime selectors stepped in it big time.
the guy who endorsed Al and Tipper Gore for the White House.
dee dee snyder was transvestite before it was promoted as a good thing
What are you going on about? What makes you think he was a transvestite? Would that include KISS?
I was at a sports bar and watched the debacle. I was floored how low the NFL sank. No class at all.
Puerto Rico flag?
Old women teaching young girls how to ‘perform’?
What shocked me the most. People applauded the show. I was disgusted and left.
BTW - I have Nielson rating monitors (3).
I don’t know if he was a transvestite, but he was certainly something freaky.
He sure looks like a painted lady
your screen name suits you well after that comment...
We cut our cable when Colon did his hate America and love Commies and Muslems.
Through some tech weenie magic via a grandson, we have tuned into the halftime show for my wife. She is multi talented re instruments she plays, has taught and performed in a marching band and in solo appearances.
She is not a prude, however, when the pole dancing happened, she turned off the tv.
The Super Bowl halftime show reminded me of a smaller, skinnier version of what I saw during an oilfield Hurricane evacuation at some Gentlemen’s club in Lafayette, Louisiana in 1985.
One of my stories from the good-ol’-days: Passed out standing up leaning against the speakers at a Twisted Sister concert at a local club in NJ (back in the 70s?). The pertinent question “was alcohol involved?” applies here.
Great band, great stage act.
BTW - I have Nielson rating monitors (3).
Out of curiosity, how old are you and your family members?
