New York has a very rich history of strong contributions to heavy music. While the NYHC pioneers get worshipped (and justly so), New York often gets overlooked in discussions of other influential heavy music scenes. Our below choices for the Top 20 New York Hardcore and Metal Albums of All-Time will hopefully get those discussions going again, with New York getting the proper respect it deserves this time.
Twisted Sister - Under The Blade (1982)
Their biggest hits may have come later, but as far as we're concerned this is the best TS album. Dee Snider's vocals sound genuinely threatening on the Iron Maiden-esque "Under The Blade" and the ominously slow burner "Destroyer." The catchy sing-along greatness that would come with their later hits would also be hinted at on "Bad Boys (of Rock 'N' Roll)," but overall the group's debut is a credibly heavy slice of pure metal.
Dee's July 12th tweet has made headlines all over the country.
"Don't know why some people are so shocked I'm pro-choice. The first line of 'We're Not Gonna Take It' is 'We've got the right to choose!'"
'We're Not Gonna Take It' has become the unofficial anthem of HB 1 opponents.

I’ve been hearing my dad’s music my entire life. As far back as I can remember, on my family’s VCR sat 3 VHS’s, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the movie, ET and Twisted Sister’s music video compilation. I’d watch my father drag Mark Metcalf down the stairs and snarl at the camera without batting an eyelash over and over and over again. It’s weird to think of all the questions I didn’t ask.
I never wondered why he was dressed so funny or why he was beating up this father character. I didn’t even realize the band was wearing anything out of the ordinary. To me, bands were like super-heroes or cartoons, they had outfits they wore all the time, that’s how people knew they were one of the good guys… or bad guys… or group of screaming war-ready up-rising transvestites.
