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?
