Only In Ohio!

| Filed under: Music MinuteWacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!


The town of Cridersville, Ohio will rename itself to Snidersville, Ohio, in honor of Dee Snider, on August 21.

We’re sorry Ohio, but your entire state is guilty by association. 80s rock band Twisted Sister was pretty cool, we guess, but they don’t deserve to have their own elementary school.

Here’s what Dee had to say about this ridiculous honor:

“I've had many dreams and been lucky enough to have most of them come true, but I would never dare to dream of something like this!”

And more from Dee:

“Having a town change its name to mine - even though it is changing only a few letters - is one of the coolest things that's ever happened to me. It’s even better that we can support the March of Dimes work to give all babies a healthy start in life.”

Dee’s band Twisted Sister will be hosting a “March of Dimes Bikers for Babies ride,” which is obviously respectable, but an entire town???

We’re sorry, but any mind that could conceive up a movie like 1998’s Strangeland should not have a town named after it. Then again, nobody would realize that, because nobody saw Strangeland.

Would U live in a town named after Dee Snider?

    Dee Snider is a really great guy. He's very dedicated to charities and loves his fans.
    Strangeland was also a great movie. It probably helped a few young girls stay away from online predators as well. He has an accomplished career as an actor, writer, producer, director, and singer. Why not name a small town after him? He's a respectable man. Sorry you don't know what that is.

    I would- Dee Snider kicks ass! He's more of a musician than most of these pop stars could ever dream of being.

  4. 4

    Why are you SUCH an asshole Perez???

  5. 5

    Damn, Perez, way to keep proving what a huge DOUCHEBAG you are! Dee Snider is a very cool very smart guy and SO WHAT, he wrote "Strangeland"? That movie isn't any more disgusting than the "Saw" movies. It's a good thing, a good promotion from the town where Dee is trying to do something good for BABIES…..you DOUCHEBAG!

    Hopefully a major eathquake happens and sends that judge and all queer marriage into the SEA!!!!!!!!!

    I've lived in Cridersville…it's a very very very small town on the outskirts of Lima (where Glee is based). Its full of hicks.

  8. 8

    Dee Snider is a very smart man. I do not really like Twisted Sister but Strangeland was an amazing horror movie and he is doing something great for a charity. Calm down Perez, I bet you want a town named after you.

  9. 9

    If California passes queer marriage..bye bye state the ocean calls lol

    I am from the town that is hosting this event and there are a lot of bikers who will be there. This event is for CHARITY and if we have to rename our town for 1 day so be it…It is for a great cause and if you do not like it go piss up a rope.

    Oh wait a minute Perez….you blog and tweet about Glee….the town that that show is based on is 5 minutes up the road…hummmm….having little man symptoms again

    Would I live in a town named after Dee Snider? Sure, I guess. Why not. I don't think I would be giving a whole lot of deep thought to the origin of the town name. Usually it is other more overt factors draw people to a town or area.

  13. 13

    this is too hilarious. i'm from c-ville and it's something they would do. anyways, this event will probably be the highlight of the summer for the townies.

    ohio and it's small towns are special in their own way.

    Re: NavyWifey1227 – Cridersville IS a really small town in Ohio, near beautiful Wapakoneta actually - and this is so weird I don't think it can be true!
    But either way - don't call them a bunch of hicks. I tell you what; I miss that part of the country when I'm out serving my country; which I hope you could understand since apparently your husband does the same.

    I've never heard of Cridersville but I'm sure there are now many people that would like to give you a good old fashion ohio ass whoopin! haha

  17. 17

    what the hell is wrong with you, mocking an entire state? way to alienate 12M people, asshole.

  18. 18

    Ok dumbass….I work and live in Cridersville…for one they aren't renaming the town forever….its for that day only…so you need to get your facts straight before you go flying off the mouth. And another thing..I think you're just jealous of the fact that they want to name a town after him…even if only for a day….cause you're too much of an ass for anyone to ever consider doin that for you!

  19. 19

    OK OK FatBoy if it will make you feel better I will name something after you.
    Hang on hang on uh uuuhhh uuhh there ya go. Oh shoot I forgot and flushed. Well maybe we can try again tomorrow.

    Plenty of towns were named after one of their citizens. That's a nice honor for Dee. He's putting them on the map.

  21. 21

    I think they should call it Twisted Sisterville instead. MUCH cooler!
    The town slogan should be "We're not gonna take it!".

  22. 22

    I live right outside of Cridersville, in Lima -thanks NavyWifey for calling us all hicks by way. And I can tell you that Cridersville is so small that it barely even qualifies as a town. Either way I'm not really sure what the big deal is here…it's just temporary and its for a great cause!

  23. 23

    if it's for a good cause i dont see the problem with it. but the rest of Ohio shouldn't be bashed just b/c ONE town decided to change their name for a charity event.

  24. 24

    Umm, I've seen that movie and I still have nightmares of his character. That movie made me think twice before I spoke to anyone or posted anything about myself when I was a teenager. I actually heard there was supposed to be a part 2 but I don't think he filmed it yet. Anyway, I think it's pretty cool that that town wants to honor him, he seems really nice.

  25. 25

    Wow! =]

  26. 26

    i used to go see twister sister at the mad mad mad mad hatter in east quogue ny back in the 70's. it was hilarious to see the band in right off the rack womens clothes. the bar was in front of the stage and dee used to sit on the bartenders shoulders and sing. such good times! they were always such a good band. very entertaining. thanks for letting me take a walk down memory lane… dee's a great guy. heart of gold.

  27. 27

    dee is a great guy and my cousin produced the movie strangeland! calm down perez its for charity.

  28. 28

    C'mon Perez,
    I love your site but every once in a while you always rag on Ohio! Why? So many of your precious celebrities hail from Ohio including Steven Spielberg, Halle Berry, Rob Lowe, Hal Sparks, and so many others! You could have just said that this is a silly thing to do instead of making fun of an entire state. Ohio rocks!!!

  29. 29

    For the record its so small we are a village not a town.. its one day.. and its for cherity… Come next Monday all will be forgot…

  30. 30

    I'm from Ohio too!!! Can't wait ’til news gets out around the whole state lol.

  31. 31

    You have not laughed until you heard Dee describe his adventures cooking a turkey in a trash can on Thanksgiving. Priceless! I love Dee Snider for his humor and for his dedication to charity work and general goodness despite his badass hair!

  32. 32

    Strangeland is one of my favorite horror movies!!! I really do like Dee Snider and he is so down to earth and simple that after everything, he can be so grateful for a town being named after him while most celebrities would view it as another entitlement. He's holding a charity event which means he keeps giving back. And you have a problem with this Perez???? Perez, WHAT is YOUR PROBLEM????!!!!

  33. 33

    Great Guy and has given so much of himself for others. As far as Ohio goes, they don't call it Beautiful Ohio for no reason. It is home to so many wonderful people. I LOVE OHIO and always will.

  34. 34

    I wanna change the name of my town to Simmonsville. (after Gene)

  35. 35

    Who's Dee Snider?

  36. 36

    wow why did you guys join Perez if your just gonna hate on him an his opinion

  37. 37

    Really Perez? I understand you make a living off of dissing celebrities, but leave it to the ones who acually deserve it. Leave it to the cheaters, the ones being caught with drugs, arrested, etc. Besides the fact that I LIVE IN CRIDERSVILLE, what he is doing is a great thing. I am definitely the farthest thing from a hick, and so are my friends, but don't diss Dee, or the whole state, for something that is good - and btw, were only being named Snidersville for one day. Thanks :)

  38. 38

    HELL YA!!!! SMFS TWISTED SISTER RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perez you are just jealous.

    Oh, whoever said Simmonsville? That is aka blabbermouth on the net.

    Dee's a straight shooter, great family man so good for him and Ohio.it's time we forget about the snookies and kate gosslins and start paying attention to real honorable people.but that will never happen because america is obsessed with watching the no class tabloid celebs act like complete dickheads.
