Dee Snider is out with an acoustic version of the Twisted Sister signature hit ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’, directed by magician Criss Angel, in an effort to help raise awareness for Angel’s HELP (Heal Every Life Possible) charity. The video was shot outside of Las Vegas and features footage of people shaving their heads and hospitalized children who are battling cancer.
“Dee and I have known each other since the 1990s and he was a strong proponent of mine for years. We are both from Long Island, or as we like to think of it, ‘Strong Island,’ and his record publishing company gave me the rights to the song and it is our anthem for gratis,” Angel told the Las Vegas Review Journal. “Dee was unbelievably generous with his time and participation.”
