Dee Snider joined Twisted Sister in 1976 and became the main songwriter of the band. They released their first studio album Under the Blade in 1982. Their second album You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll was released in 1983. The band achieved major success in 1984 with the release of their third album Stay Hungry featuring the hits “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock”. Stay Hungry went multi-platinum selling 3 million copies with videos for the singles receiving heavy airplay on MTV. Twisted Sister followed up the success of Stay Hungry with not as successful Come Out and Play album in 1985. The album sold 500,000 copies. Twisted Sister split up after the release of 1987’s Love Is For Suckers.

Twisted Sister reunited in 2001 and has done some recording and touring ever since. They called it quits last year with a 40th anniversary farewell tour. I got to see their final New York area show which took place at The Rock Carnival in Lakewood, NJ. Despite pouring rain throughout the band’s entire set, they still kicked total ass.
