Twisted Sister doc will change your mind on everything

Have you seen the documentary We Are Twisted F***ing Sister yet on Netflix? No matter what you thought of the band prior to now, this flick will surprise you. It will change your mind about everything you thought about Dee Snider and the boys.

Sure, we all remember their MTV videos, but there is SO MUCH MORE history behind this amazing act. They were born in the early ’70s practically as a tribute band to David Bowie and the Velvet Underground. They would continue to evolve through the glitter and glam area of rock until becoming metal gods in the mid ’80s. There are so many twists and turns along the way that you’ll get dizzy. And you’ll admire the band more than you thought possible.

We Are Twisted F-ing Sister actually only follows the band’s career from the start until they finally signed their first record deal way too many years later. But it’s that first half of their journey that will just wow you. There are no words.

Watch it. Trust me. And then consider hanging out with Dee Snider for a week on the 2019 voyage of The 80s Cruise. He’s hosting the gig, and after seeing this film, I seriously just want to learn their entire catalog and stalk Snider on the ship asking him question after questions about his incredible career.

My podcast co-host B-Rad and I will be hosting trivia on the Celebrity Infinity that week. Other performers include Kenny Loggins, Berlin, sheila E, OMD, The Fixx, English Beat, Grandmaster Flash, Cutting Crew and Club Nouveau.
