Rocker Dee Snider has lashed out at U.S. vice presidential hopeful Paul Ryan for allegedly using his popular tune We’re Not Gonna Take It during a campaign stop in Pennsylvania.
Ryan, who is currently touring America to support Mitt Romney's bid for the White House, reportedly tried to boost morale during a political rally on Tuesday by blaring the classic Twisted Sister hit to pump up the crowd.
However, Snider has taken issue with the politician's use of the song and has lodged a formal complaint with Ryan's camp.
A statement from the 57 year old reads, "I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my band Twisted Sister's song 'We're Not Gonna Take It' in any capacity. There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the (home exercise regime) P90X."
This is not the first time a Republican Party candidate has been reprimanded for their choice of music - earlier this month rockers Silversun Pickups fired off a cease-and-desist letter ordering Romey to stop playing their track Panic Switch.
