Dee Snider tells Talking Points Memo he’s objecting to Paul Ryan’s use of the Twisted Sister song “We’re Not Gonna Take It” at a recent campaign rally.
It’s unclear what kind of clearance the Romney campaign has to use the song. Increasingly, musicians are speaking out when politicians they do not like use their music, although campaigns do obtain blanket licenses to use all sorts of songs at rallies.
Snider told TPM, “I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my band Twisted Sister’s
song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ in any capacity. There is almost nothing he
stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X.”
