The lead singer of the band Twisted Sister, Dee Snider, slammed Rep. Paul Ryan for using his 1984 hit 'We’re Not Gonna Take It' at a Pennsylvania rally on Tuesday, reports TalkingPointsMemo.com.

In a statement, Snider told TalkingPointsMemo.com: “I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my band Twisted Sister’s song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ in any capacity. There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X.”
