This Week's Inspirational Pop Culture Moments

This week a charitable rocker gets a town named after him, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo gives back, and John Lennon sends some posthumous advice. Here are this week's most inspirational pop culture moments.

Snidersville Named for a Twisted Rocker

It's not every day a heavy metal singer gets a town named after him. Then again it's not every day a heavy metal singer steps up to do charity work.
Dee Snider of the '80s hair band Twisted Sister has been working with the March of Dimes for over ten years. After two of his four children were born prematurely, he became the national spokesperson for Bikers for Babies, the organization's initiative that fights to end preterm births.

On Saturday, August 21, Dee will ride his motorcycle from Lima to Cridersville, Ohio during a
Bikers for Babies fundraiser. And to show their gratitude to the rocker, Cridersville is officially changing their name to Snidersville for the day.

Snider joked on his website, "That oughta send property values skyrocketing!"
