Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider says he gave Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump permission to use the band’s hit “We’re Not Gonna Take It” on the campaign trail. 

“He called and he asked, which I appreciated,” Snider told Canadian Business in a recent interview. “I said, ‘Look, we don’t see eye to eye on everything — there are definitely issues that we’re far apart on.’ But thinking back to when I wrote the song and what the song is about, it’s about rebellion, speaking your mind and fighting the system.”

Trump previously clashed with R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe after the musician told him to “go f —” himself after the candidate used the band’s music without permission. Neil Young has also refused to let Trump use his music.
