* CrowningMomentofAwesome : When the MoralGuardians (in the form of Tipper Gore and the PMRC) complained about Twisted Sister's lyrics, Snider testified and delivered a verbal smackdown. You may watch the hearing, also featuring Music/FrankZappa and Music/JohnDenver , [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d65BxvSNa2o here]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Just watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gs37NSLy3z4 the three-minute intro]] to ''We're Not Gonna Take It''.
** Damn, the ''entire'' video runs on this.
** Then the boys finally capitalized on what fans noticed right away about the song and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmEfFlbqbbY made it official]].
*** In the VH1 TV movie about the PMRC hearings where [[RefugeInAudacity Dee Snider played himself]], they show the video in court. When they shut off the TV he bemoans "Aw they were coming up to the best part!"
* FaceOfTheBand: Dee Snider
* FanCommunityNicknames: S.M.F., which Dee Snider notoriously explained to Senator UsefulNotes/AlGore stood for "Sick Mother Fuckers" during the 1985 Senate hearing on offensive content in music.
-->'''Al Gore (sarcastically):''' Is this a Christian organization as well?
-->'''Dee Snider ( equally sarcastically):''' Not exclusively, but I'm sure you can count several Christians among the members.

* {{Mondegreen}}: In the Spanish-speaking world, ''We're Not Gonna Take It'' is [[MemeticMutation popularly]] known as "Huevos con Aceite"[[note]]eggs with oil[[/note]]. This has been so prevalent that not only did Chilean band ''Los Mox!'' include a ShoutOut in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEUU2rtupc8 its cover]] of the song, but [[AscendedMeme Twisted Sister themselves]] have jokingly sung it that way in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otdh4mYnTYE a few concerts]].
* OlderThanTheyThink: While the band had its heyday in [[TheEighties the 80s]], it was formed in 1972, half to a full decade before its contemporaries.
