    We Are Twisted F**cking Sister!

    Released: February 23, 2016
    When Twisted Sister exploded onto the national music scene in 1983, the foul-mouthed, cross-dressing rabble-rousers became one of the definitive shock metal acts of the 1980s, their infamous live shows drawing rabid sell-out crowds and their music videos establishing an early MTV. But the band that killed disco was hardly an overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED SISTER! is the wickedly entertaining and surprisingly poignant untold story of the ten grueling years spent battling it out in suburban bars and night clubs around Long Island and the Tri-State Area prior to the band's legendary breakout, recounted by the band themselves and the club owners, record executives and rival bands along for the ride.

    Dee Went to Washington to Fight for Free Speech

    September 19, 1985

Paul Ryan Denounced

Paul RyanIt was brought to the attention of the management today that Paul Ryan has been using our client Dee Snider's composition "We're Not Gonna Take It" in his political campaign to become the Vice President of The United States of America. Dee does not support Paul Ryan. Accordingly, Dee has released this statement to Benjy Sarlin, campaign reporter for TPM in Washington, DC:

I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my song "Were Not Gonna Take It" as recorded by my band Twisted Sister. There is almost nothing on which I agree with Paul Ryan, except perhaps the use of the P90X.

I've long been a fan of your music. As a teenager in the 1980's during the height of Tipper Gore's nonsense I took a few beating from the children of her followers for being a fan of your music. I respect your right to not want that song becoming a theme song in a polarized election and not to agree with someone's policies. Good art is above the politics of the moment. Either side can listen, read, or watch it and fit it to their ideology regardless of what side of the political spectrum they adhere. Catering, or giving appearance of catering, to either side loses fans from the other. Sucks, but these are sorry times.
I'll still buy your records. After the election if Romney is elected when I will get back to making a steady paycheck again.
+2 # No Longer A Fan!CookieMonster_Q 2012-08-29 17:32
It was a major hassle to sign up for this site, but I did so in order to vent my anger.
Dee Snider, I was once a fan--but now see you for what you are: a washed-up, has-been rocker who knows NOTHING about what's best for this nation. Paul Ryan & Mitt Romney are certainly not perfect but they are far better than the socialist bastard who currently occupies the White House.
I am a former Democrat (how could I have been so stupid?) who no longer recognizes the Democrat Party; which has been hijacked by far-left Socialists.
I am now a Registered Independent who will never vote for another Democrat as long as I live.
Dee Snider and all his other show-biz pals seem to enjoy pissing-off their fans by expressing radical political views. Do us all a favor: play your music but keep your politics to yourself! Moron!

And do us a favor and keep your moronic opinions to yourself. You're a perfect example of what's wrong with this country. You think anyone who disagrees with you is an idiot so you just listen to people who think the same thing you do. And get more and more insulated from reality.

People have different opinions. Just because I don't agree with yours doesn't make you a moron. Your post is what makes you a moron.
-8 # Who Are The REAL Morons?CookieMonster_Q 2012-09-02 13:02
"natf"--the REAL morons here appear to be your parents. Each of your posts indicate how badly they failed in your upbringing--esp ecially in the area critical thinking skills.

The title of your post proclaims that all of us who dislike Dee's actions are " A Bunch Of Idiots". But our collective opinion is clearly a majority--while yours is unmistakeably in the minority. If you need proof, scroll to the bottom and look at all the Like/Dislike ratings for all the posts here. Add up all the "Like" comments for those who think Dee screwed-up. The numbers speak for themselves.

Here's a little hint: recruit all your extreme left wing buddies to come here and boost the "Dislike" numbers. As the numbers stand now, you have lost the argument. You need to call in reinforcements.
-1 # You're A Bigger Jackass Than I Thoughtnatf 2012-09-18 01:51
Your collective opinion is clearly a majority? Really? Doesn't seem that way in any other discussion. It seems that a few of you have come here and clicked the "dislike" button but that hardly means you're in the majority.

You appear to be one of the many idiots who feel that anybody who is a celebrity - of any stature - has no right to state their opinion.

Guess what? They're Americans too. That free speech thing still applies, dumbass.

If you think Dee shouldn't state his opinion and call out something he disagrees with, maybe you should shut your mouth as well and stop posting your drivel. The sword cuts both ways.

I think Dee is awesome for sticking up for his beliefs! He didn't say he was taking legal action against Ryan, just assuring people that he didn't approve Ryan's use of his song. If you've ever read anything Dee says, you would know that he votes for the person, not the party. He said he's voted Republican in the past, but will not vote for a Republican simply because of the title. Ryan represents an EXTREME opinion- LOWER taxes for the uber-rich, HIGHER taxes for middle-lower classes. Taking away women's rights to make decisions about their own bodies. Planned parenthood- a VERY small % of what they do is abortion-relate d. Taking away subsidized school lunches for poor children?? Forcing the elderly to live without Medicare or Social Security? What the FUCK is that???

Keep rocking Dee. You don't need supporters that can't understand rationality & basic human rights. You have plenty of supporters - young & old, male & female.
+15 # Paul RyanDrumstick713 2012-08-27 21:30
What a disappointment to find out that you are just another douche-bag, limousine liberal. How cliche.
-29 # Bunch of idiotsnatf 2012-08-24 16:01
Did Ryan send those other people here to comment? Or maybe they're all him using different names, LOL. Either way, they sound like a bunch of morons to me.

Good for you Dee - agree with you or not, I respect your opinion. Unlike all the losers leaving those comments ahead of me, saying you've lost their respect.

If I was you I'd be happy they were gone. Who needs a bunch of jackasses like that?
+13 # Reply to "Bunch of Idiots"Used_2_B_A_Fan 2012-08-24 17:54
The point isn't if we agree with him or not - it's the fact that he could have done this with class - in private. I'm OK if Dee is a liberal, most in his industry are. It's when he turns this into a public issue that I start to have a problem. Entertainers that do these public "calling out" things, spout this "fake outrage" and it gets old. If Dee agrees with Obama and wants to have more of HIS money confiscated - more power to him!
-6 # Still a bunch of idiotsnatf 2012-09-01 01:44
So it's okay for a bunch of anonymous idiots to spout outrage and call out Dee, but it's not okay for him to do it?

And his having different opinions than you makes you not like his music any more? That's crazy. How is the music any different than it was the day before he posted this?

I think Clint Eastwood's speech was nuts at the RNC but that doesn't make me like his movies any less.

Like I said, you're all a bunch of idiots.
+17 # YOU LOST MY RESPECT DEE!!twisted789 2012-08-24 15:58
You lost my respect Dee, I am no longer a fan! You are a Liberal loony bin now!! stay out of politics and shut your mouth. just play your music. now going to trash all your CDs. Never going to your shows ever again. F off.
+35 # sirmatthewsirmatthew 2012-08-23 16:27
I was one of the first to take home Stay Hungry and thought Dee would lean conservative or libertarian before supporting Democrats, but I guess I was wrong. This situation wouldn't be so confusing if it didn't involve this particular song. It is perhaps the perfect song (according to the lyrics) for Republicans to use to rally against Democrats who (like strict parents) are constantly trying to restrict rights, impose regulations, increase taxes, and force partisan legislation upon us such as Obamacare.

We live in a free country so I don't criticize Dee for being opposed to Ryan, but I would appreciate knowing more about what he's thinking here.
+14 # REALLY DEE?Used_2_B_A_Fan 2012-08-23 16:07
I had recently become a bigger fan of Dee's after his appearance on Celebrity Apprentice but this tanked it all.
1) To make this a public calling out - VERY POOR TASTE
2) To side with the party that tried to put restrictions on your creativity back in the 80's - VERY POOR JUDGEMENT
3) To not fully understand what Paul Ryan stands for (i.e. personal responsibility, free market principles (how you made your money Dee!) and trying to stop our country from becoming an economic train-wreck like Greece) - VERY POOR VALUES

You could have been a a shining lignt in the dark, self-righteous whole that the entertainment industry has become, and stood up for the free market principles that made you what you are today. Instead, you missed your opportunity and latched on to a party that is determined to limit freedom every chance they get. DO THE RIGHT THING AND TAKE BACK THE STATEMENT OR LOSE THIS FAN.
+11 # Very Sadkismetique 2012-08-23 11:32
I'm a baby boomer, and while TS wasn't really on my radar growing up, I watched Dee and his wife on Wife Swap. I was absolutely so stunningly impressed by mainly his wife, but by Dee as well, that I immediately had such great respect for this family. Dee's wife is one classy lady and their family seems genuinely happy.
+12 # Very Sad - Con'tkismetique 2012-08-23 11:31
But Dee coming out in this fashion against Ryan so publicly, makes me rethink my new found respect for him. If Dee didn't want him to use the song, then quietly contact him and ask him not to - end of story, but to be so public and humiliating about it - it's just sad and so disappointing.

After watching them on Wife Swap I could have sworn they leaned conservative, so I'm wondering if there isn't some peer pressure going on here. Perhaps not, but I just certainly cannot see where Dee and especially his wife would be so enamored with Obama and his debt and purposeful demise of America and it's work ethic and work values.

Regardless, of his affiliation, Ryan is a fellow American and should be treated with respect as such. He is NOT the enemy, he just happens to disagree with Dee's POV apparently.
+40 # Really ???Eightiesrocker 2012-08-23 11:25
Cmon Dee really, is this where your career has taken you to . Can you actually say with a straight face you agree with nothing. Well I got to say it seems to me your injecting politics for the sole purpose of publicity. You should be honored that a presidential canidate would want to use your music. Lets face it there are alot of better choices they could have used. I have to say I agree with the other comments ... You lost my respect also.
+47 # Makeup Caused Brain damageMaj. fight Fan 2012-08-23 06:41
Dee,

Seriously, there's nothing you agree with Paul Ryan about? So, you're in favor of high taxes, high unemployment, high gas prices and the Federal government regulating and controlling every aspect of your life - including your song lyrics?

Remember, Democrat Al gore and his wife tipper were instrumental in limiting your freedom of speech. Your Jewish Mother couldn't possibly be a fan of an American President that refuses to name the Capitol of Israel for fear of upsetting Israel hating Muslim countries. years of women's makeup has clearly affected your ability to think rationally. Pathetic!
+47 # You have lost my respect Deebmbsqd 2012-08-23 05:38
PS...look at the things you claim you have loved in life....your politics do not match up. Let's face it...you are only dogpiling to be popular. FUCK YOU!
+48 # You have lost my respect Deebmbsqd 2012-08-23 05:36
That rocker who stood up for Freedom of Speech in Congress has become a MORON! Yo have lost my respect Dee, not that you care. Your politics is YOIUR business. When I LISTENED to your music it was not because I wanted to know your politics. It was for the music.

Why the FUCK do I care about your politics? In fact, you are totally CLUELESS.

I am not going to take it....I just tossed your CDs in the trash.

Stay the fuck out of politics...you are not good at it.
