House of Hair

Dee Snider blasts the best classic metal every Saturday night during The House of Hair from 9PM-Midnight, only on Rock 93-7.

Rock 93-7 takes you back to big hair days Saturday nights. Long Island native Dee Snider is best known as the lip-stick coated, spandex-wearing frontman of Twisted Sister.  In 1985 he hosted MTV’s first ever show dedicated to hard rock called “Heavy Metal Mania”.

That same year a Senate hearing was instigated by Tipper Gore and the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), who wanted to introduce a parental warning system (similar to movie ratings) that would label all albums containing “offensive” material.  Dee Snider, John Denver and Frank Zappa all testified against censorship and the proposed warning system. Such a system was never implemented, but the result of the trial brought about what is now the generic “Parental Advisory: Explicit Content” label.

Dee Snider has written songs for other stars as well, including Celine Dion. He also wrote and starred in the horror film Strangeland.
