Dee Snider Shares The Twisted Sister Song That Was His ‘Declaration Of Independence’

Twisted Sister lead vocalist Dee Snider recently posted a tweet saying that Twisted Sister’s ‘I Am (I’m Me)’ was his ‘Declaration of Independence’ as it was to many others.

Although Twisted Sister’s first two albums fell short of expectations, they rose to fame in 1984 with the release of their third studio album, ‘Stay Hungry.’ The album featured the band’s hit singles, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ and ‘I Wanna Rock.’ Dee Snider hugely contributed to the band’s further popularity during this period with his fantastic singing and show skills.

The band’s songs have inspired many younger musicians and fans throughout their long-lasting existence in the music world. Their lyrics mostly stood out with their empowering and melodic style. Especially, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It‘ turned into an anthem song used for various political causes. The song encouraged many people to stand up for their rights in diverse matters.

The song probably has a special meaning for Dee Snider, but another track has greatly influenced his life. A Twitter user wrote how meaningful Twisted Sister’s ‘I Am (I’m Me)’ is to him. Upon seeing that, Dee Snider shared a tweet saying that this song was his ‘Declaration of Independence,’ so he gets what the user means. The singer also added that he feels thrilled that this song has a meaning for the user as it has been to many other people worldwide.

The user’s words on the song:

“I get it. And if it wasn’t for this song, I’d probably not be here right now. And the fact that almost 40 years later, I’m alive, and the song still means the same? F*cking priceless!”

Dee Snider’s reply follows:

This was my Declaration of Independence. So glad it spoke for you and many others too.”
