Dee Snider releases acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It”
Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has released a politically charged acoustic version of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which will appear on his next solo album We Are The Ones, which will be released in October 2016. The video premiered today on EW.
The written message in the video states:
“On April 14th, 2016 hundreds of music creators went to Washington D.C. to tell congress it’s time to update the laws governing music — Pre-internet copyright laws regulate music creators’ royalties today — Big radio corporations earn billions but don’t pay performers or producers for radio play. — Songwriters get below-market rates for their work based on a law from the player piano era — We’re not gonna take it ANYMORE — It’s time for a change — It’s time to support music. And its makers. www.GRAMMY.com/Action#FairPlayFairPlay”
