Alright…Mark Metcalf bears something of a superficial resemblance to Mitt Romney, at least he did back when this video was shot. But this isn’t our Musical Interlude for the night. You see…Dee Snider is not happy with the GOP right now. You see, apparently Paul Ryan used “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as his intro music at a Pennsylvania rally on Tuesday.
Snider informed TPM that “I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan’s use of my band Twisted Sister’s song, ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ in any capacity. There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X.” P90X is Ryan’s exercise routine.
The GOP has had some major problems when it comes to their choices of music. Recently, Silversun Pickups complained about Romney’s use of their song for his rallies. Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine wrote an op-ed slamming Ryan who claims to love their music. What makes this worse is that the GOP has not learned any lessons about this yet. Back in 2008, they got into trouble with Heart and Jackson Browne for unauthorized use of their songs.
Romney might want to just consider sticking to songs from Megadeth and Hank Williams Jr.
The Romney camp is apparently reviewing Snyder’s complaint.
