Dee Snider: South Park Jew?

Former Twisted Sister lead Dee Snider will host a Passover special on VH1 Classic.

Dee Snider to Host ‘Matzo and Metal: A Very Classic Passover

VH1 Classic presents a first-ever television special event that is sure to have you shouting Shalom! “MATZO AND METAL: A VERY CLASSIC PASSOVER” invites viewers — Jews and Gentiles alike — to the network’s own version of a rock-n-roll Passover Seder attended by heavy metal and hard rock artists who happen to be Jewish. Premiering on the second night of Passover, Sunday, April 24th at 7 p.m. ET, the one-hour special features host Dee Snider (half Jewish) and Scott Ian of Anthrax, Leslie West of Mountain and Snider’s Twisted Sister bandmate JJ French discussing their experiences in the music industry as well as their Jewish heritage over a special Passover meal. All foods served will be Kosher of course courtesy of the special’s sponsor Manischewitz.

Those unfamiliar with a Passover Seder will hear how music plays a key role in the traditional dinner and see how the rich history of Passover is shared through storytelling. And hard rock and heavy metal musicians certainly have plenty of stories!

Clearly, Snider is a South Park Jew. Or, perhaps, a Beavis and Butthead Jew.

    Wouldn’t a “South Park Jew” just be Kyle?
