We’re Not Gonna Take It! Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider ‘Absolutely’ Supports Ukrainians Using Band’s Hit Rock Anthem

Dee Snider, lead singer for the popular 80’s heavy metal group Twisted Sister, is throwing his support behind Ukrainians using his hit song ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as they fight invading Russians.

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine on Thursday.

Snider: ‘I absolutely approve’

There are reports that Twisted Sister’s 1984 song is being used to literally rally the troops by the Ukrainians. On Saturday, Dee Snider reacted to the news. 

“I absolutely approve of Ukrainians using ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as their battlecry,” Snider tweeted. “My grandfather was Ukrainian, before it was swallowed up by the USSR after WW2. This can’t happen to these people again! #F***RUSSIA.”

If you need a refresher on the 80’s anthem, watch here:

Snider has long been a popular cult figure – from early days on MTV to writing and starring in the cult horror film Strangeland.

He’s also had quite the reality TV career – with a family reality show on A&E, an appearance on “Celebrity Wife Swap,” and competing on “Celebrity Apprentice.” 

On Sunday, Snider shared another tweet about the Ukraine war, explaining why he supports Ukraine’s use of his song, but did not offer the same support to those protesting coronavirus mandates.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

“People are asking me why I endorsed the use of ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ for the Ukrainian people and did not for the anti-maskers,” Snider wrote. “Well, one use is for a righteous battle against oppression; the other is a infantile feet stomping against an inconvenience.”
