    We Are Twisted F**cking Sister!

    Released: February 23, 2016
    When Twisted Sister exploded onto the national music scene in 1983, the foul-mouthed, cross-dressing rabble-rousers became one of the definitive shock metal acts of the 1980s, their infamous live shows drawing rabid sell-out crowds and their music videos establishing an early MTV. But the band that killed disco was hardly an overnight success. WE ARE TWISTED SISTER! is the wickedly entertaining and surprisingly poignant untold story of the ten grueling years spent battling it out in suburban bars and night clubs around Long Island and the Tri-State Area prior to the band's legendary breakout, recounted by the band themselves and the club owners, record executives and rival bands along for the ride.

    Dee Snider vs PMRC

    Dee Went to Washington to Fight for Free Speech

    September 19, 1985

According To Science, Heavy Metal Makes You A Better Person

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.

Also, the sky is blue and water is wet.

Researchers interviewed heavy metal musicians, fans and groupies that grew up with the music during the '70s and '80s in 2015 and found that despite engaging in risky behaviors, metalheads were the least likely to seek help for emotional issues than fans of any other musical genre. Thanks to the common themes of darkness, sadness, isolation and anger exhibited in metal songs, emotions like anger and sadness could be regulated in the brain, as well as forming social bonds with other fans in the heavy metal community.

You may remember in the '80s when Tipper Gore and a handful of politicians' wives formed the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) to combat themes like sex, violence and substance abuse in popular music. They also issued the "Filthy Fifteen" which included songs by Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Twisted Sister, W.A.S.P., Def Leppard, Black Sabbath and Venom, that they believed would lead American youth down a dark and self-destructive path.

That was until Twisted Sister's Dee Snider spoke before Congress to refute the PMRC's misinterpretations against their music and heavy metal culture. "I feel that an accusation of this type is irresponsible, damaging to our reputation, and slanderous," Snider says in his opening statement. "I'm tired of running into kids on the street telling me they can't play our records anymore because of the misinformation their parents are being fed by the PMRC on TV and in the newspapers."
