About Dee Snider

One of heavy metal's most powerful and distinctive voices, Dee Snider ascended to hard rock royalty in the early '80s as the lead singer for New Jersey-based glam-metallers Twisted Sister. A charismatic and outspoken frontman -- in 1985, alongside John Denver and Frank Zappa, he testified against censorship in regard to the Tipper Gore-led PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) -- Snider and company topped the charts in 1984 with the all-purpose us-against-the-world anthems "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock." After the 1987 dissolution of the group, he embarked on a series of solo and group projects, as well as acting and screenwriting gigs, that kept him busy well into 2010s. In 2021 he issued his Billboard-charting fifth solo effort, Leave a Scar.
