“We’re one of many greatest bands on the planet, we’re on the Filthy Fifteen,” Snider recalled. “So we had been literal targets. So that they figured, ‘Oh, this man seems to be like an entire moron. Or an incomplete moron, which is even worse. Let’s get him.’ But when that they had simply spent a second, there was no social media. ‘Oh shit, he’s married? He doesn’t do medication? He doesn’t drink? What a second, this isn’t our man.’”

Snider famously turned the PMRC on its head throughout his testimony, eloquently selecting aside the group’s arguments on censorship. His articulate show was a far cry from what the politicians had anticipated.
“If that they had finished their homework and gotten previous the image and the recognition,” Snider defined to Steve-O. “In the event that they’d regarded on the lyrics, I used 4 syllable lyrics in ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It.’ I imply, no one makes use of – ‘trite and jaded, boring and confiscated.’ I imply, that’s not rock lyrics, that’s the Declaration of Independence for God’s sakes! And so they didn’t vet me, they usually obtained what they deserved.”
“If that they had gotten a Vince Neil, that’s who they wished. They wished somebody to rise up and go ‘Blblblblb,’” Snider additional remarked, making an incoherent babbling noise.
Dee Snider Beforehand Known as Vince Neil a ‘Assassin’
This is not the primary time Snider has made an attention-grabbing quote relating to Motley Crue‘s singer. Whereas the PMRC remark was mentioned in passing, the Twisted Sister frontman was way more pointed in 2016 when discussing Neil’s alcohol-fueled automotive accident that killed Hanoi Rocks drummer Razzle.
“Vince Neil may go and actually kill somebody in a automotive accident,” Snider noted at the time to Yahoo Music. “And persons are cool with that. They’re like, ‘Yeah, all proper! Rock ‘n’ roll!!'”
“The man did not do any severe jail time,” Snider continued. “I am, like, ‘Actually? Actually? He is a assassin.’ I do not get that in any respect.”
