"His mainstream notoriety comes from honking a boat horn with his dick"
Smack Talk -- Twisted Sister seems to be lighting a lot more fires in the press in the recent calendar year or two. Add to that a grip of lawsuits against small town Mom & Pops type food trucks and coffee shops. The "We're Not Gonna Take It" heroes seem to be holding true to their hit songs lyrical content and lashing out at everyone from nobodies to rock stars. Last year Dee went off and drudged up old news by arguing with Krokus over stage clothes from 30 years ago. Now Dee is slamming Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
We're assuming it's all part of the plan to up the ante and just get the bands name in the press. All good.
This week Snider takes a few swipes at Tommy Lee and grabs old news again when he mentions Lee'sability to honk a boat horn with his dick. Hey, if you got it - flaunt it. We give a thumbs up to anyone who has a wang that can honk horns.

"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.

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.
