Twisted Sister is an American heavy metal band from Long Island popularized in comedic music videos on the television channel MTV in the 80s. Although formed as a David Bowie-inspired rock band by guitar player Jay Jay French in 1973, the band's style shifted to a more strident, aggressive metal-influenced sound when frontman Dee Snider joined the band and took over songwriting, leading to the creation of fan-favorite songs such as "I Wanna Rock", "We're Not Gonna Take It", and "Under The Blade". They fused the shock tactics of Alice Cooper and W.A.S.P.
Biography by Last.fm, available under cc by-sa license.
Although nothing relative to the lyrics, this songs is a cataract of memories for me, as I used to read the lyrics of the album's booklet, by a guy who used to visit me in my place and listen to some music while chatting about nonsense, who thought that several years later this guy would become my roomate.
