Dee Snider is Not Gonna Take it unless money is on the table

Only days after Dee Snider publicly slammed Republican candidate Paul Ryan for using "We're Not Gonna Take it" at a political rally, we learn that had Ryan actually paid for the rights to use the song, Snider would have been OK with it.

Turns out Snider may claim that he can't, but he can take it, as long as they throw greenbacks in his trough. A hotel chain Extended Stay America, recently threw a bunch of money Snider's way and produced a 30-second spot designed around Twisted Sister's 1984 signature tune "We're Not Gonna Take It". The TV commercial was shot in April in Torrance, California. You can now watch the commercial at this location.

The hotel chain is not the first to feature the song. "We're Not Gonna Take It" was previously used in commercials for Claritin, Walmart, Stanley Steamer and Yaz birth control.

Word of advice for Republicans and politicians in general. If you need to stay current, buy stock music or be sure to dish out money for something that is up-to-date. Twisted Sister hasn't been relevant for nearly 30 years. What was their last album? A collection of Christmas carols released back in 2006.
