Donald Trump Has Permission to Use Twisted Sister's ""We're Not Gonna Take It"

Trump has an ally from the music industry in the form of Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider, who explicitly gave the billionaire mogul, who currently leads the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings, permission to use their 1984 hit "We're Not Gonna Take It" as a campaign rally cry.

"I have spent time with Donald and his family," Twisted Sisters' Dee Snider said. "I don't think either of us expected that we would like each other, but you know, Donald Trump is a pretty chill guy. He's a frontman." (AP Photo)

Snider told Canadian Business that Trump called and asked for permission to use the song, a gesture that he appreciated.
"I said, 'Look, we don't see eye to eye on everything — there are definitely issues that we're far apart on,'" he said. "But thinking back to when I wrote the song and what the song is about, it's about rebellion, speaking your mind and fighting the system. If anybody's doing that, he sure is."
Donald Trump has been chastised by musical acts like Neil Young,Aerosmith and R.E.M. for using their songs on his presidential campaign trail. However he is now has permission from Twisted Sister.
