Twisted Sister always looked like they just crawled out of a dumpster to us, but that's why we loved them.  Twister Sister started out in 1972 as a band called "Silver Star" in New York with guitarist Jay Jay French.  It wasn't until 1976 that Danny Snider (Dee Snider) joined the band as lead singer. In the early days, Twisted Sister was a  big local bar draw in the tri-state area.  Their stage show was unique in that they played games with the audience and often discussed that day's happenings between songs.  Twisted Sister became so popular, they sold out large New York venues even without a record contract.

In desperation for a record contract, Twisted Sister ended up moving to the United Kingdom where they were signed in 1982 and an EP (Ruff Cuts) was released, quickly followed by their second release, Under the Blade.  It was soon after this release that the band began changing their image, landing somewhere between Russian female models, homeless people, and Oscar the Grouch's trash can.  By 1983, You Can't Stop Rock & Roll was produced by Atlantic Records, and Twisted Sister was back in the states.

Twisted Sister's most recognized and best selling release was their 1984 release, Stay Hungry, which featured the hits "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock".  The band's popularity was increased by their comedic music videos, one of which even featured Pee Wee Herman.  Unfortunately, fame was somewhat fleeting, and subsequent releases did not do nearly as well.  Many people do not know that the album Love is for Suckers (1987), was actually a session recorded album with Dee Snider, Reb Beach (prior to Winger), Kip Winger, and Steve Whiteman (Kix).  This album did not do well, but we really like it.  The band broke up in 1987.

By 1997, the members of Twisted Sister were once again collaborating.  Not only could the band be found performing on stage again (Rocklahoma, Masters of Rock), but also back in the studio.  They released Still Hungry in 2004 and a Christmas album, A Twisted Christmas, in 2006.  More to come?  At the time of this writing, the Twisted Sister Discography was as follows:
