A petition has been launched for a “real metal” act for next year’s NFL spectacular in the form of AC/DC.
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has backed the petition for AC/DC to play the Super Bowl halftime show next year Petition founder Gina Dilecce said of the push,
“It’s been a while since we’ve had some real metal play the halftime show for the Super Bowl. Don’t get me wrong, all music artists have done a great job and should play the show, but we all need a turn.
“It’s time for some rock and roll! And who better than AC/DC to play?! They are coming back together, making a new album and possibly touring again. This would be perfect! Come together, metalheads, and get this going!”
So far the petition has over 1500 signatures and Dee Snider, who posted a video on Instagram directed toward NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
“There are a lot of bands that are stadium worthy and a lot of bands that have sold hundreds of millions of records, but the one band that I think has such crossover appeal to so many people in all genres is AC/DC,” said Dee.
“You play so many of their songs at every single game – and the band is reuniting with a new album, they’re going to be touring again and they would bring down the house.”
