Despite political differences, Dee Snider has given Donald Trump permissionto use the Twisted Sister hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It” due to their personal friendship. However, Snider now says that Trump’s recent comments may cause him to rethink his decision.
“What’s going on now has me questioning allowing the song to be continued to be used,” he told Shadrach Kabango of CBC Radio’s Q. “And it’s very upsetting to me because I strongly don’t agree with his extremist positions. I know the man’s not a racist. He’s a friend of mine. But when you’ve got white supremacy groups aligning themselves with you and you don’t denounce them […] that’s a problem for me, and I’m really sort of coming to the end of my road here with this. I have to call Donald.”
