Dee Snider Gets the Last Laugh

I remember back in the 1980's Twisted Sister was one of my brother's favorite bands. I never got as much into their entire library, but they were an entertaining group. In the 1980's Tipper Gore (Mrs. Al Gore) and a number of wannabe nanny staters were saying that heavy metal was causing suicides among young people. Tipper Gore was leading a charge to censor music and as part of that whole circus, Dee Snider testified before Congress about effors to censor music that discussed violence or sexuality. Hey Tipper, it got worse didn't. Anyway, I just came across this tidbit: Dee Snider Gets the Last Word

Say what you will about guys like Dee Snider, he is right. Almost invariable the power of ideas will win out.
