Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider has just updated his official Twitter account to send out his support to Ukrainian people and said that he approved of their using the band’s classic song, We’re Not Gonna Take It, as their battle cry.

Dee Snider achieved international fame as the lead singer and frontman of the 1972-formed heavy metal band Twisted Sister. Debuted in 1982 with the band’s debut studio album Under The Blade album, Snider had joined the band in 1976. He had released 6 studio albums throughout his tenure with Twisted Sister, which means he performed in the entire studio albums of the band.

Over the years, Dee Snider has been actively using his social media accounts. Logically discussing the issues on the agenda with his fans via his social media, Snider recently opened up about his honest feelings about the deadly Great White fire. It was one of the darkest concerts in rock history, no doubt.

This time, Snider updated his Twitter to break his silence on the ongoing Ukraine-Russia crisis, which officially began when Russian president Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in the east of Ukraine. During the war, hundreds of people have passed away from both sides.

However, in his tweet, Dee Snider answered the question that if he approves of Ukrainians using Twisted Sister’s We’re Not Gonna Take It as their battle cry. Disclosing that his grandfather was Ukrainian, Snider admitted that he approves of their using the song.

“I absolutely approve of Ukrainians using ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ as their battlecry,” Snider said.

“My grandfather was Ukrainian, before it was swallowed up by the USSR after WW2. This can’t happen to these people again! #FUCKRUSSIA.”

In his another tweet, Snider once again mentioned his grandparents.

“My grandfather was Ukrainian when it was taken over by Russia after WW2,” he said. “My grandmother was Transylvanian when the Russians took over & occupied the Carpathian mountains.

“Who do you think were carrying those Russian guns, driving the tanks & flying those planes? Canadians?”
