The newest musician to ask Paul Ryan to stop using his music is Dee Snyder from the '80's band Twisted Sister.
Paul Ryan used Twisted Sister's big hit "We're Not Gonna Take It" as his intro music at a rally in Pennsylvania the other day. It was funny and ironic enough that a white, privileged millionaire who has spent his adult life on Capital Hill chose that particular piece of music.
What's Paul Ryan not gonna take anymore? Another glass of $700 wine?
Snyder said about the musical choice:
“I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my band Twisted Sister’s song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ in any capacity,” Snider told TPM in a statement relayed by his manager Tuesday. “There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X.”Yikes. But perhaps just as interesting is the lyrics themselves which we don't think anyone paid much attention too...
We've Got The Right To Choose And
There Ain't No Way We'll Lose It
This Is Our Life, This Is Our Song
We'll Fight The Powers That Be Just
Don't Pick Our Destiny 'cause
You Don't Know Us, You Don't BelongHmmmmm. A secret code? Doubtful. Just another tone-deaf decision by a really dumb campaign.
If Paul doesn't know which music he can choose and not get in trouble the Siren suggests anything by Ted Nugent, Hank Williams or Pat Boone for starters.
