Twisted Sister Slam Paul Ryan For Using 'We're Not Gonna Take It'
According to Blabbermouth, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has slammed Paul Ryan, who was tapped last week to run for vice president on the Republican ticket alongside presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney, for using the band's 1984 hit "We're Not Gonna Take It" as intro music at a rally yesterday in Pennsylvania. "I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my band Twisted Sister's song 'We're Not Gonna Take It' in any capacity," Snider said. "There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X." P90X, or Power 90 Extreme, is a commercial home exercise regimen, known for being intense. It is designed to take 90 days, and consists of a training program which uses cross-training (weight training, martial arts, yoga and old-school calisthenics) and periodization, combined with a nutrition and dietary supplement plan. "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "Stay Hungry" were the biggest hit single and album, respectively, in Twisted Sister's career. Snider said "We're Not Gonna Take It" is now part of America's cultural fabric. "It's become like a folk song. It's a traditional song now. It has a simple message that's applicable to everything from sports teams to politics. I even once heard about the song being used by people protesting the development of commercial property," he said. The song's lyrics say in part "Oh you're so condescending/Your gall is never ending/We don't want nothin'/Not a thing from you."
