Although the band was formed by guitarist Jay Jay French in December 1972, all of their songs were written by Dee Snider from 1976 onward. Twisted Sister's most well-known 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.

* HairMetalHairMetal: Although the genre's alternate name, Glam Metal, is rejected by Snider given they're anything but glamourous!



* IconicItem: Eddie Ojeda's bulls-eye guitar (traditionally pink\black, red\black in recent years).



* NonActorVehicle: Snider wrote and produced ''[=Strangeland=]'' about a psychopath obsessed with body modification. It was truly the first horror film in the "Torture" genre.
