Dee Snider, most well known for his role as front man of the band Twisted Sister, released a statement regarding Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan's use of his famous rallying tune, "We're Not Gonna Take It." We'll let him do the talking. From Razor & Tie:
It was brought to the attention of the management today that Paul Ryan has been using tour client Dee Snider's composition "We're Not Gonna Take It" in his political campaign to become the Vice President of The United States of America. Dee does not support Paul Ryan. Accordingly, Dee has released this statement to Benjy Sarlin, campaign reporter for TPM in Washington, DC:
I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my song "Were Not Gonna Take It" as recorded by my band Twisted Sister. There is almost nothing on which I agree with Paul Ryan, except perhaps the use of the P90X.
Ryan really can't catch a break
. The only musician who ain't coming after him at this point is Hank Williams Jr., because no duh.*
