Info for Love Is For Suckers (Remastered)
Although listed on sleeve, it is said that Eddie Ojeda, Jay Jay French and Mark Mendoza don't play on this record: Love Is For Suckers was ment to be Dee Snider's solo album but record company refused to release it unless it was labeled as a Twisted Sister album.
Although Twisted Sister's final studio album wasn't as commercially successful as its predecessors, it is still Twisted in every way and a great record. Released in 1987, the album took its cue from the cock-rock, pop-metal explosion happening at the time. But despite the obvious influence of this trend, the band retains it's heavy sound.
"Wake Up (The Sleeping Giant)" is a fist-pumping, angry tune given an added boost by new drummer Joey Franco, who's heavy pounding is reminiscent of John Bonham's. "Hot Love" has a Madonna-like feel to it, but with heavy guitars instead of the dance beat one might expect from the pop diva. The title track is a humorous, tongue-in-cheek cut, while "Tonight" and "Me and the Boys" are two anthemic singalongs made for cruising to that all important arena show with your buddies. "You Are All That I Need" is an excellent power ballad written by Dee Snider to his wife Suzette. The rockin' double-time "Feel Appeal" possibly refers to a groupie, while "Statutory Date" says jail time is a small price to pay for an occasional act of imprudent indulgence Love Is for Suckers songs.

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.
