In 101 years of Chicago tree-lighting ceremonies, there was nothing quite like this year’s.
It wasn’t the 57-foot Colorado blue spruce, or the 47,800 LED lights. It was the singing that set it apart.
Heavy-metal rocker Dee Snider, who was the focus of a Congressional hearing on explicit lyrics when he was lead singer of the band Twisted Sister in 1985, helped throw the switch, and sang a mash-up of the standard “O Come All Ye Faithful” with Twister’s Sister’s arena-rock anthem, “We’re Not Going to Take It.” Watch the Video
