Dee Snider to Paul Ryan: We're Not Gonna Take You Using My Song!

by at . Comments

Republicans. When will they learn.

With some notable exceptions (Ted Nugent, Dave Mustaine, Hank Williams Jr.), music stars seem far from keen on having their material used at GOP campaign rallies.

Today, Dee Snider became the latest to decry such a move. He surely won't be the last. Said a rep for the Twisted Sister rocker / Celebrity Apprentice star:

  • Paul Ryan For Vice President

"It was brought to my attention today that Paul Ryan has been using client Dee Snider's composition 'We're Not Gonna Take It' in his political campaign to become the Vice President of The United States of America.

Dee does not support Paul Ryan. Accordingly, Dee has released this statement to Benjy Sarlin, campaign reporter for TPM in Washington, DC:

'I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my song 'Were Not Gonna Take It' as recorded by my band Twisted Sister. There is almost nothing on which I agree with Paul Ryan, except perhaps the use of the P90X.'"

The hilarious footnote to that statement refers to Ryan's personal training regimen ... check out Paul Ryan shirtless, the man's in good shape.

In any case, Paul can cross Twisted Sister off the list. The way this is going, he's going to cycle through dozens of jukebox heroes by election day.

Heck, Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello went out of his way to slam Ryan for merely saying he was a fan of the group in an interview.

Dee's band didn't create that song anyway! Somebody else made that happen! LOL

That's about as smart as liberals are, cutting off their nose to spite their face. You go for it Dee, screw yourself. Yeah, that's the way to go. Fool!

Wv-peach

Why don't they use Nugent, Mustaine, or Williams music? Makes sense, no?
