Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider Thinks It’s ‘Hilarious’ That A MAGA Politician Bizarrely Thinks ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ Is Some Sort Of Right-Wing Anthem

There’s been this odd attempt by a certain group of people, right-wingers especially, to create a new narrative behind Twisted Sister’s highlight song, “We’re Gonna Take It.” One attempt came earlier this year when Dee Snider, the band’s lead vocalist, allowed Ukrainian supporters to use “We’re Gonna Take It” as a theme song of sorts for their fight against Russia, who invaded the country earlier this year. Some questioned why Snider allowed Ukrainian supporters to use it and not anti-maskers, to which he replied, “Well, one use is for a righteous battle against oppression; the other is infantile feet stomping against an inconvenience.”

DEE SNIDER Is ‘Stunned’ By The Life Of ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’: ‘It’s Practically A Folk Song At This Point’

During an appearance on the “Midday With Jayme & Grayson” podcast, TWISTED SISTER singer Dee Snider spoke about his steadfast support of the people of Ukraine using the band’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as their battle cry anthem. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I’ve been stunned by the life the song’s had [and] what it’s become. It’s practically a folk song at this point. Anytime anybody isn’t taking something from somebody, they’re screaming, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’. On the left they’re screaming it, on the right they’re screaming, at sporting events they’re screaming it, and now on the front lines, in the battle for their lives, they’re singing it. So, it’s an honor, it’s a pleasure, it’s shocking.
