Twisted Sister is an American heavy metal band from New York City. Their work fuses the shock tactics of Alice Cooper, the rebellious mood of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and the extravagant makeup of bands like the New York Dolls and Kiss. The group has a glam-like image and implements musically elements of classic heavy metal bands such as Judas Priest and Iron Maiden as did some of the earlier glam metal bands. Although the band has been categorized with glam metal bands, their music is much closer to the heavy metal and traditional metal style. Dee Snider, the group's frontman, has even been quoted as saying:

I don't think Twisted Sister is "glam" because that implies glamour, and we're not glamorous.
We should be called "Hid" because we're hideous.

Although the band was formed by guitarist Jay Jay French in December 1972, all of their songs were written by lead singer Dee Snider from 1976 onward. He describes Twisted Sister as "Slade meets Sex Pistols". The group's hits include "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock", both popularized by regular airplay on MTV in the 1980s. Many of the band's songs explore themes of parent vs. child conflicts and criticisms of the educational system.
