Music Groups - Twisted Sister

Twisted Sister is an American heavy metal band from New York City. Their work fuses the shock tactics of Alice Cooper, the rebellious mood of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and the extravagant image of glam rock bands such as New York Dolls notably for the makeup. Musically, the band implements elements of traditional heavy metal bands such as Judas Priest, along with a style that is similar to early glam metal bands. The band is generally categorized as glam metal for their earlier work, although the band does not consider themselves to be so. Although the band was formed by guitarist Jay Jay French in December 1972, all of their songs were written by Dee Snider from 1976 onward. Snider remarked to Johnny Carson that the proposed name for the band was "This" but was rejected for fear of fans saying "this sucks". He describes Twisted Sister as "Slade meets Sex Pistols". Twisted Sister's most well-known hits include "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock", both popularized by regular airplay on MTV in the 1980s. Many of the band's songs explore themes of parent vs. child conflicts and criticisms of the educational system.

1 The first records on that small UK label were OK, but once they started recording for Atlantic the records just sounded hackneyed and forced. The live show started to turn into a parody of itself - if you saw TS in say '79 you couldn't find a harder rocking show on the Long Island circuit, but by '82 it had gotten stale. -- Submitted By: (VoxMysteron) on February 19, 2010, 10:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 "Stay Hungry" ROCKED!!! Then Twisted Sister just totally fell off the map after that, to the point where I literally didn't even know they'd made any more albums. I kinda assumed they must have, but I never heard about them. Then I saw Dee Snider "acting" in some crappy movies later on. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 13, 2009, 4:35 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Twisted Sister went for a more pop-friendly sound after the "Stay Hungry" album, which contained the band's only real hits, and would never re-capture the intensity of the first three records. -- Submitted By: (LoyalPigeon) on May 12, 2009, 4:52 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
