Twisted Sister

Before Van Halen……
Before the Ramones……
Before the Sex Pistols……
There was TWISTED SISTER!!!

Lead singer Dee Snider, guitarists Jay Jay French and Eddie Ojeda, bassist Mark “The Animal” Mendoza and drummer A.J. Pero continue the legacy of one of the greatest ‘comebacks’ in the history of Rock n' Roll!

Formed in 1973, Twisted Sister combined the theatricality of the glam rock movement with the sharp edge of groups like David Bowie and Alice Cooper to conjure its one-of-a-kind sound. The band made its bones on the Tri-State area’s club circuit before signing with Secret Records in 1982 for its debut, Under The Blade. Soon after the album’s release, the British label went bankrupt. 

The group rebounded a year later, when Atlantic Records signed the band on the strength of a powerful performance on British television. Twisted Sister’s Atlantic debut, You Can’t Stop Rock ’N’ Roll, was certified Gold. 

The band’s 1984 follow-up, Stay Hungry, was a Top 20 smash that stormed the charts with “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” a pair of fist-pumping anthems of youthful rebellion that went Top 40 and helped the album sell more than three million copies.
