Mark Begelman on the Success of Twisted Sister

The successful Twisted Sister heavy metal band, formed in 1972, has sold millions of records. Much of their fame stems from the unique attire the group is fond of. They have traveled to many places, and notably was the tour after the release of Stay Angry which sold more than 2 million copies within a year, and more than 3 million later. This success helped the band attain international attention, and within no time, MTV was playing their hit song, We’re Not Gonna Take It, among others on a regular basis. This song became number 21 in US charts.

A few years thereafter, the band recorded the soundtrack for the movie Strangeland. Most of their songs were previously written in French, but they recorded most in English. In 2004, given the success of Staying Hungry, they went back to studio. This time around, Twisted Sister wanted something new, a new taste of their hit song. Citing poor recording of the original Staying Hungry record, the band redid the song on their own studio. They then renamed it Still Hungry, and gave the fans more tracks as a bonus on the album.

Currently, Twisted Sisters, despite the loss of A.J Pero, is planning a 2016 tour. Everything is ready for the tour, including their theme and the songs, and seemingly it will be their peak. The band is still intact even after many years, and the group has also announced that Pero’s place will not be empty during the tour. Mike Portnoy will join the band in his place. It has been quite a journey for the band, but so far, they are doing their best to maintain their great fan base. TMZ.com has already announced the tour, and there is also more information on the band’s website. To read more about A. J. Pero, you can visit their official website, twistedsister.com, where his story ever since the band was formed has been covered.
