Product Description


Influenced by New York punk bands like the Ramones and Dictators, as well as by traditional heavy metal ensembles, Twisted Sister created brash, simple songs that buzzed with subversive energy, giving the band the appeal of bad-boy cartoon characters. Their third album, Stay Hungry, featured the classic rebel anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It" as well as more uptempo tracks like "Burn in Hell" and "S.M.F." (which, in true metal fashion, stands for "Sick Motherfucker"). No one disputes Twisted Sister's competence level. Simply put, they couldn't play well enough to save their five-year recording career, but frontman Dee Snider's outrageous stage presence and accidentally hilarious lyrics ensured that their time in the limelight was thoroughly entertaining. --Jon Wiederhorn

4.0 out of 5 stars Twisted Sister Reaches Their Pinnacle Dec 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
In between 1982's raw "You Can't Stop Rock & Roll" and the putridly slick and melodic 1987 release "Love Is For Suckers"; Dee Snider & Company put out a down right fun and hard rocking album. 1984's "Stay Hungry" found Twisted Sister in the middle of the glam metal scene - right up there with Quiet Riot, Ratt, Motley Crue, Poison, etc. Dee Snider was more vocal than any of the other band leaders (Kevin Dubrow, Stephen Pearcy, Vince Neil, Brett Michaels, etc) and deservedly so. The man can talk. The new millenium finds him on the radio doing his "House Of Hair" natiowide broadcast... a true testiment to the 80's and 90's glam and hair bands. Dee has the gift of gab - and the radio suits him perfectly. Mega smash hits with "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock" are here. Along with classic rockers "Stay Hungry" and "Burn In Hell". The only filler tune here is "SMF". Snider writes all the tunes here and it's evident he's a dry-witted educated man - he writes great (and often funny) lyrics... and his music is simple. To this day, I can't help but remember the video's from "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock" featuring the 'Maestro' himself Mark Metcalf (aka: Doug Neidermeyer from "Animal House"). Classic 80's rock album with some classic cuts here. Every rock library needs some Twisted Sister - and if you have to have one - this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly an All-Time classic May 3 2003
By Stretch
Format:Audio CD
Twisted Sister hit the Jackpot in 1984 with "Stay Hungry". They had Two classic, unforgettable videos that showcased youth rebellion (Who hasn't felt like that kid at one point? Getting fed up and wanting to toss your teacher/parent out of a window. Man, I sure did after taking B.S from my teacher in college last term, even hoping Twisted Sister appeared out of nowhere, but I digress) And as we all know, gained notoriety in the process, landing themselves on Tipper Gore and the P.M.R.C's "Hit list" of obscene musicians.
That said, it shouldn't overshadow "Stay Hungry" for what it is, pure, full-throttle metal at it's best. By the time of it's release, Dee Snider and the boys had been playing for about a decade, and it really shows in the brilliant songcraft and musicianship.
It's a shame that "I wanna Rock" and "Were not gonna take it" aren't anthems for my generation today, because they sound as fresh now as they did back then in 1984.
"Stay Hungry" also houses a few severely overlooked Gems, The Jackkhammer riff of "Burn in Hell", and the up-tempo "Don't let me Down" with it's fast tempo, chorus segment, and a pounding riff.
A few more favorites of mine are the sentimental "The Price". "The Beast" is about the beast inevitably approacing, and there's no way to stop him.
In closing I'll say "Stay Hungry" is a must-have for any self-proclaimed Metalhead, If you refuse to listen to this music and call it cheesy, you're missing out and doing yourself a grave disservice. If this by any chance describes you, pick up "Stay Hungry" today and expand your palette.

5.0 out of 5 stars You're an S.M.F. Feb. 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was the album that put Twisted Sister on the map. I had been listening to Dee Snider's radio shows and heard some of the songs on this album, so I decided to give it a shot. I figured I would like it since I'm into metal from the 80's. I couldn't stop playing it for the first few weeks I got it. There is some great music on this album. Unfortunately, as an earlier reviewer mentioned, people dismissed them becuase of their redicoulus costumes, long hair, and comedic music videos, but if you put "Were Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock"(which I think are great songs by the way)aside, Dee wrote some good lyrics to the title track, the "Horror-Teria" medley, "The Price", "Don't let me down", and "The Beast". The album closer "S.M.F." of course went on to become the name of their fans, and 20 years later people are still banging their heads to this album. Plus, he kept the music simple, and sometimes the most simple things can be the most effective. This album is no exception. Dee is also keeping it real as a DJ, hosting the "House of Hair" radio show, which I listen to every saturday, in which he plays the best of the Hairband/Heavy Metal era. A big up to Dee for keeping the music of that era alive, because it's alot better than half the stuff out their today. Don't pass up this piece of that era. Buy it, and as it says in the booklet: PLAY IT LOUD, MUTHA! S.M.F.'s unite!

5.0 out of 5 stars "This is our life, this is our song" Dec 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
Like W.A.S.P., the music of Twisted Sister was often overshadowed by heavy make-up, over-the-top antics, and silly music videos. Stay Hungry, however, is one of the best metal/hard rock albums to come out of the 1980s. The two anthems "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock" aside, Stay Hungry includes some of the most intelligent lyrics and songwriting to come from this genre of 80s excessive rock bands. The lyrics to "Street Justice" are, unfortunately, timeless in their relevance: "A child's scream sliced through the air, but no one came or seemed to care. The man's description did little good. A local stranger from the neighborhood. Those little kids, ooh, he left behind, with their mangled lives and their tortured minds. Since he didn't seem to care then don't you think it's only fair? Call for street justice." "The Price" is a surprisingly pleasant slow number. I once saw the lyrics to the chorus written next to the word "price" in a school dictionary, so it definitely touched someone's life. "Captain Howdy" is powerful in its imagery of a killer who lures children to his home of doom. The rest of the album just rocks! Unfortunately, the band was never the same again, but they left behind one of the best rock albums of the 1980s...and a lot of ghastly costumes.
