A rock singer with the heavy metal group Twisted Sister was arrested in Amarillo, Texas -- but the cops let him take off his lipstick, fingernail polish and eye makeup before carting him off.

Daniel Dee Snider, 29, was charged with public lewdness Sunday night when parents picking up their children at the end of a concert complained he was urging the kids to rebel against parents, teachers and police. Police reports listed Sniders' comments as 'antisocial and anti-American.' The concert was attended by about 3,000 people with an average age of 14, according to police officer Jeff Lester. Snider has pleaded innocent, posted a $75 bond and was released from custody pending a Nov. 2 trial.
