Snider sparked the spat earlier this summer (15) when he criticised Stanley and Gene Simmons for allowing current bandmates Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer to take on the personas of original members Ace Frehley and Peter Kriss and wear their signature face make-up onstage, after previous replacement members showed off their own styles.

During a recent appearance on the Eddie Trunk Podcast, the Twisted Sister star said, "Oh, my God, that's disgraceful... When Kiss replaced Ace and Peter, and they brought in guys who had their own make-up and their own thing, that was acceptable. That was awesome. They were their own characters."

Now Stanley has fired back, telling the Talk Is Jericho podcast, "Let me put it in the simplest terms. In this case, this guy is a wannabe, has always been a wannabe and desperately wants attention and to be taken seriously and that will never happen because he's obviously clueless to the fact that he and his whole band are a bunch of buffoons."

Snider, who is currently on Twisted Sister's farewell tour, has responded by challenging the Kiss co-founder to an onstage sing-off.

He took to Facebook and wrote, "Any time, any stage. But let’s do this old school - no costumes, no pyro, no bull. Let’s just get up there and rock. I will bury you, son."

Snider adds, "As far as my whole band being a bunch of buffoons goes, that’s a pretty ironic statement coming from you. The argument could easily be made that Kiss is the king of the buffoons, so in an odd way you’ve paid Twisted Sister quite a compliment. It takes one to know one.

"Did I mention that I’m clean, sober, razor sharp and fully capable of defending myself from any kind of lame attack?"
