Obviously, it must rock to live in this town.

On August 21, Cridersville, Ohio, will be renamed Snidersville, Ohio, in honor of metal legend Dee Snider. The 55-year-old musician, who hosts the nationally-syndicated House of Hair radio show, requested that the town switch up its name after a listener from Cridersville called in to request a song of his. The request was in jest, but then the town agreed to make it happen - at least for a day, according to a statement.

“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!” Snider said.

But the name change isn't just for a laugh. On that same day, the frontman for ‘80s band Twisted Sister will also host a March of Dimes Bikers for Babies ride. Snider will be seen cruising on his bike from Lima, Ohio to the aforementioned Snidersville with a crew of other bikers in a fundraising effort to fight premature birth.

“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,” the rocker said. “It’s even better that we can support the March of Dimes work to give all babies a healthy start in life.”
