    Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider took to social media to condemn anti-maskers who went into a Florida Target store blaring the group’s hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It" while ripping off their masks. In a tweet Wednesday, Snider called the stunt “moronic," and shared a viral video that was recorded by an upset customer inside the Target at Coral Ridge Mall in Fort Lauderdale. The video had more than 30 million views. Snider said the group doesn't have his “permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause."

    Dee Snider has defended his "aggressive and intense" approach in dealing with "idiot Trump followers" on social media, saying that he is "trying to lead by example." The TWISTED SISTER frontman, who got to know President Donald Trump personally after appearing more than once on "The Celebrity Apprentice", has been an outspoken critic of America's 45th president, tweeting incessantly against Trump's administration and blasting the billionaire real estate mogul as "a commie-loving traitor" who is prostituting our democracy. He has also engaged in heated Twitter fights with Trump followers, some of whom have taken issue with his colorful delivery and...

    Dee Snider did not like what he saw during Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show. The Twisted Sister frontman criticized Jennifer Lopez and Shakira for what he considered too sexy performances for the NFL’s family-friendly audience, and insisted a rock band would have brought a different vibe. “Beginning to pole humping, ass slapping, ass shaking end. If that’s the requirements for a half-time show, none of the rock bands I know can or will do that. #justsayin,” Snider tweeted Sunday night.

    Dee Snider isn't sure if he's going to take it anymore -- when it comes to his friend, Donald Trump, using his music. In light of Trump's proposal to ban Muslims from entering the United States, the Twisted Sister lead singer said that even though he told Trump a few months ago that he could use his song "We're Not Gonna Take It," he's starting to rethink that decision ... "My Donald Trump was a Democrat," he said. "My Donald Trump is pro-choice. My Donald Trump is what we call a Northeastern Republican, you know, fiscally conservative, socially liberal. But...

    This quoting is a one-time break from FR tradition, but I think for this one article I will do it this way. Here is the quote from the singer: "He [Trump] called and he asked, which I appreciated. I said, 'Look, we don’t see eye to eye on everything—there are definitely issues that we’re far apart on' But thinking back to when I wrote the song and what the song is about, it's about rebellion, speaking your mind and fighting the system. If anybody's doing that, he sure is. Trump and Bernie Sanders are the two extremes. They're raising holy...
  • Dee Snider on Why Donald Trump Can Use 'We're Not Gonna Take It'

    Newsweek ^ | 8 Sept 2015 | Zach Schonfeld
    Donald Trump has been using an unlikely soundtrack at speeches and rallies for his presidential campaign: Twisted Sister's 1984 hit "We're Not Gonna Take It." When Paul Ryan tried using the same track during his 2012 campaign for the vice presidency, he drew a stern rebuke from Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider. So why does Trump—who is also running as a Republican—get away with the song usage? The rebellion anthem might seem better suited to a disaffected teenager than a 69-year-old billionaire making a bid for the White House, but Snider says he won't be calling foul this time. In...

    Donald Trump has drawn the ire of musical acts like Neil Young, Aerosmith and R.E.M. for using their songs on his presidential campaign trail. But it appears Trump has finally found an ally from the music industry in the form of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who explicitly gave the billionaire mogul, who currently leads the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings, permission to use their 1984 hit "We're Not Gonna Take It" as a campaign rally cry. Snider told Canadian Business that Trump called and asked for permission to use the song, a gesture that he appreciated. "I said, 'Look,...

    Rocker DEE SNIDER has lashed out at U.S. vice presidential hopeful PAUL RYAN for allegedly using his popular tune WE'RE NOT GONNA TAKE IT during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania. Ryan, who is currently touring America to support Mitt Romney's bid for the White House, reportedly tried to boost morale during a political rally on Tuesday (21Aug12) by blaring the classic Twisted Sister hit to pump up the crowd. However, Snider has taken issue with the politician's use of the song and has lodged a formal complaint with Ryan's camp. A statement from the 57 year old reads, "I emphatically...

    Dee Snider was recently on the Wendy Williams show talking about how Tipper Gore targeting his band Twisted Sister as a reason for warning labels on music back in the 80's. See the embedded video at the original post here, or on YouTube. Something had to get Tipper's panties in a bunch, and we know it wasn't Al. So the question is...why pick on Twisted Sister?

    Last week I received an unexpected Christmas lesson from the heavy metal band Twisted Sister. They appeared on The Tonight Show, thrashing out a steel-reinforced rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful.” You may remember these guys for their Eighties hits “We’re Not Going To Take It” and “I Wanna Rock,” or you might recall lead singer Dee Snider embarrassing Tipper Gore’s anti-rock crusaders in the Senate with his polite but unyielding testimony. My favorite part was when the committee counsel referred to him politely as "Mr. Sister." Dee and the boys blew the roof off the place: “O come...

    While former Treasury secretary Paul O'Neill may now be critical of his former boss's policy of liberating Iraq, President George W. Bush can take heart. Someone arguably much hipper than O'Neill has expressed support of Bush's war against Saddam Hussein. Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider, a brawny guy who gained fame donning makeup and trashy women's clothing, has joined fellow heavy-metal rockers Ted Nugent and Gene Simmons [see "Antiwar Singers Out of Tune With Public," May 13-26, 2003] in saying the war against the former Iraqi dictator was justified. And since O'Neill set a precedent of seeking out rock...

    NEW YORK - Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, whose "We're Not Gonna Take It" has become the anthem for Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign, says the actor-turned-politician actually inspired that hit 1984 record. The heavy-metal star only met the would-be California governor for the first time on Sunday, when they appeared together at a rally. But Snider's been a fan for decades. Twisted Sister's 1984 best-selling album, "Stay Hungry," was inspired by a Schwarzenegger book Snider read in the early 1980s. Schwarzenegger also starred in a 1976 movie with the same title. "It motivated me," Snider said Monday. "I dedicated the song...
