Dee Snider reveals why Trump gets okay to use Twisted Sister song ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’

dee-snider-trumpTwisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, who got to know Donald Trump as a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice,” gave the Republican presidential candidate the go-ahead to use his hit song, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” at his campaign events.

“He called and he asked, which I appreciated,” he told Canadian Business during a recent interview.

“I said, ‘Look, we don’t see eye to eye on everything—there are definitely issues that we’re far apart on.’ But thinking back to when I wrote the song and what the song is about, it’s about rebellion, speaking your mind and fighting the system. If anybody’s doing that, he sure is.”

But Snider didn’t see Trump as the only candidate fighting the system. He also sees someone who might be thought of as Trumps polar opposite in that role.

“Trump and Bernie Sanders are the two extremes. They’re raising holy hell and shaking everything up,” he said. “That’s what ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is about.”

Snider’s approval was also based on the personal relationship between the two.

“And we’re friends. I have spent time with Donald and his family, Snider explained. “I don’t think either of us expected that we would like each other, but you know, Donald Trump is a pretty chill guy. He’s a frontman. When that camera goes on, he furls his brow, he does his thing. Off-camera he’s very self-deprecating. He makes jokes about being too orange and about his hair.”

Here’s the official music video of Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”
