Dee Snider has released a music video for his song “Stand,” featuring footage from the documentary “America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List.” The film, which premiered Feb. 20, 2022, on REELZ, tells the story of the 2003 fire at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island, at a concert by Great White. More than 100 people died, and more than 200 were injured. The documentary will air again at 3 p.m. EST Sunday, Feb. 27.
Snider, who has performed at the Station nightclub, was instrumental in bringing together fellow recording artists for a fundraising concert for survivors and victims’ families. He was interviewed for the documentary.
“While I didn’t write ‘Stand’ for the Station nightclub fire documentary ‘America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List,’ it is a perfect fit,” Snider said. “The full tragedy of that horrific night was the despicable lack of support shown for a community in desperate need. ‘Stand’ speaks to the importance for us all to recognize these moments of desperation and do something about them. ‘Don’t leave your mark … leave a scar!'”
“Stand” is from Snider’s latest solo album, “Leave a Scar,” released in 2021 via Napalm Records.
“Nobody should have to die because they want to see a band and listen to the music they love,” Snider said. “Nobody should be scarred for life, be crippled or have their children orphaned because of their love for rock ‘n’ roll. This documentary not only serves as a reminder of this incredible tragedy, but it shines a light on an amazing group of people who overcame unfathomable loss and survived, even thrived, in the aftermath.”
