Twisted Sister frontman recalls “frustration” of being criticized by peers during ‘80s censorship struggle.

 

Former Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider said he felt “abandoned” by the rock world after his 1985 appearance before the U.S. Senate to argue against the introduction of the PMRC’s “Parental Advisory” sticker program.

 

He was one of several musicians, including Frank Zappa and John Denver, who testified in a successful bid to prevent a larger-scale ratings system being created.
