Biography

One of the most immediately recognizable figures in pop music during the 1980s, Dee Snider delighted young fans and left parents aghast as the howling, heavily made-up frontman for the metal group Twisted Sister. Snider and bandmates rose from obscurity in their native New York to the forefront of the burgeoning pop-metal scene on the strength of teenage rebellion anthems like "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock." The band's time in the limelight was remarkably short-lived, but Snider successfully segued into a career as a radio DJ and voiceover artist. Like most '80s hair bands, Twisted Sister experienced a wave of nostalgic revival in the late 1990s, which found Snider in fine voice and still willing to don his outlandish outfits for diehard fans. He soon added reality television personality to his growing résumé as the star of "Growing Up Twisted" and a contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice" (NBC, 2004- ), among other onscreen projects. His ability to remain faithful to his music while adapting with the times made Dee Snider one of rock music's more resilient and eternally recognizable figures.
