Info for Stay Hungry (Remaster)
Motley Crue may have been the glam metal kings of the '80s. But, for a while at least, Twisted Sister gave them heated competition. While the Crue and their L.A. cohorts (Ratt, Dokken, etc.) were dead-serious in their approach, Twisted Sister's music and videos always contained an element of humor-something most bands of the era sorely lacked. 1984's Stay Hungry was Twisted Sister's double-platinum breakthrough, its popularity spurred by the imaginative (and hilarious) videos for the hits 'We're Not Gonna Take It' and 'I Wanna Rock.'
The Long Island-based Twisted Sister built a solid following, gigging constantly since the early '70s and riding on the strength of such albums as „Under The Blade“ and „You Can‘t Stop Rock n‘ Roll“. All of which set the band up for „Stay Hungry“. Singer Dee Snider proved to quite an intimidating figure, bedecked in garish make-up and transvestite gear, and his outspoken personality carried Twisted Sister's songs and stage-show. Stay Hungry proved to be the band's finest hour, containing such tracks as 'Burn In Hell,' 'The Price,' 'S.M.F.,' 'Horror-Teria,' and 'Stay Hungry' itself. Unfortunately, Twisted Sister was unable to sustain such success, and the band broke up only a few years later.
„After nearly a decade trying to make it to 'The Show,' Twisted Sister were finally up to bat. Their first album was a wild swing, their second had flown just barely foul, but with their third -- the unstoppable Stay Hungry -- the New York veterans finally hit one out of the park. And few bands were as deserving. Having paid their dues on the tough as nails N.Y.C. club scene (half of the band looked like the Ramones, the other half like the Dictators, and Dee Snider looked like, well, Dee Snider), Twisted Sister had finally worn down the opposition and truly arrived. With their comedic videos and bubblegum undertones, hit singles 'We're Not Gonna Take It' and 'I Wanna Rock' helped the band bridge the 'beauty gap' into MTV acceptance, and a competent power ballad in 'The Price' would cement their consumer-friendly status. But it was the irrefutable menace of tracks like 'The Beast,' 'S.M.F.,' and the massive 'Burn in Hell' that connected with their loyal fans and displayed Twisted Sister's true power. Equally grim, 'Captain Howdy' and 'Street Justice' -- the two songs comprising the 'Horror-teria' suite (later the basis for Snider's ill-fated movie project Strangeland) -- are a cross between Alice Cooper and its stated source of influence, Stephen King. And don't forget the all-out metal ambition of the title track. Ironically, the album's very mainstream appeal would alienate their core heavy metal fan base and spell the band's overexposure-induced fall from grace, but for this brief moment, Twisted Sister were truly the 'talk of the town, top of the heap.“ (Eduardo Rivadavia, AMG)

Formed in 1973, Twisted Sister combined the theatricality of the glam rock movement with the sharp edge of groups like David Bowie and Alice Cooper to conjure its one-of-a-kind sound. The band made its bones on the Tri-State area’s club circuit before signing with Secret Records in 1982 for its debut, Under The Blade. Soon after the album’s release, the British label went bankrupt.
The group rebounded a year later, when Atlantic Records signed the band on the strength of a powerful performance on British television. Twisted Sister’s Atlantic debut, You Can’t Stop Rock ’N’ Roll, was certified Gold.
The band’s 1984 follow-up, Stay Hungry, was a Top 20 smash that stormed the charts with “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” a pair of fist-pumping anthems of youthful rebellion that went Top 40 and helped the album sell more than three million copies.
Come Out and Play was released in 1985 and went Gold thanks to a tongue-in-cheek cover of the Shangri-Las’ “Leader of the Pack,” a longtime live staple dating back the band’s club days. Soon after 1987’s Love is For Suckers, Twisted Sister stopped performing live.
More than a decade after its last show, Twisted Sister reformed in 2001 for a benefit. The quintet quickly picked up were it left off, notching an astonishing run of more than 9,000 (and counting) performances, 75 headline festival dates performing in front of two million people in over 23 countries.
In 2006, the band returned to the charts with A Twisted Christmas, a best-selling, holiday smash album that buzzsaws through yuletide classics and was hailed by the Associated Press as the “second greatest Christmas album ever made” behind Elvis. That same year, the Long Island Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Twisted Sister.
Rock of Ages, a current Broadway hit with five Tony® nominations, features Twisted Sister prominently in its storyline as well as the band’s iconic anthems, “I Wanna Rock and “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which rank world wide among the most requested and licensed (movies, TV shows, commercials) songs of the 80’s.
Twisted Sister is one of a select few legendary bands that still tours with its original recording line-up intact.
Twisted Sister’s 38-year legacy includes sales of more than 12 million records (35 Gold and Platinum awards from 8 countries) and their electrifying stage show has made them one of the most successful rock festival attractions in history, currently headlining the worlds biggest rock festivals in 28 countries.
