The words of Dee Snider’s semi-rebellious teenage anthem have rarely felt more emotive than they do at the end of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The original version of We’re Not Gonna Take It is a light and fluffy number: the soundtrack to an argument about vegetables at the dinner table rather than the beginning of a debate on the political landscape. After the bloodshed of the first-person shooter is over, a metalcore rendition of the glam rock hit plays out, and summarises the thoughts of many in 2017, as well as the resistance in 1960s America. And there has to be a resistance: the Nazis had a far more successful World War II in this timeline than in ours.
Completely refuting the stigma that "metalheads" abiding by the "sex, drugs and rock n' roll" lifestyle would lead them down a destructive path, a scientific study done by Humbolt State University states that listening to heavy metal music leads to living a happier youth and becoming more well-adjusted during middle-age.
Think twice before taking on the vintage band T-shirt trend — at least, if you’re anywhere in the vicinity of Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider.
The rocker took to Twitter earlier this week to vent about nonmetal fans wearing vintage metal band T-shirts.
For Snider, it’s “sickening” and disrespectful to wear band merch unless you’re a true fan of the group.
Evidently, Snider doesn’t appreciate how awesome vintage band tees look on fashion heavy hitters, including the likes of Kendall Jenner, Alessandra Ambrosio and Hailey Baldwin.
What do Light The Torch/ex-Killswitch Engage frontman Howard ones, Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta, and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider have in common? Well aside from all three being well-known names in the rock and metal community, they're working on a new project together! Jasta and Snider took to Twitter to confirm that the project is indeed a reality and might even feature more than just the trio of vocalists.
