Info for You Can't Stop Rock N' Roll (Remastered)

Although New York's Twisted Sister wore makeup and stage costumes, the group was completely unlike other glam-metal bands of the early '80s. The group's 1983 major-label debut, „You Can't Stop Rock N' Roll“, is more akin musically to such harder-edged metal outfits as Motorhead and Metallica, while on stage, the band adopted a more freakish persona (while bands like Motley Crue did the opposite). Twisted Sister's U.S. debut wasn't the commercial breakthrough that its next release was (1984's hit „Stay Hungry“), but it did the job of introducing the band to the rest of America and solidified the band's standing in the U.K. (where Twisted Sister had already released an independent record).

Highlights on this album include the title track, which would become a band staple, and the album-opening "The Kids Are Back." The Spitfire reissue also tacks on three previousy unreleased tracks to sweeten the pot, but regardless, Twisted Sister sounds both heavy and inspired throughout „You Can't Stop Rock N' Roll“.

From the solid sales of their independently released debut album, 1982's Under the Blade, New York's Twisted Sister were finally rewarded with a major record label contract, courtesy of Atlantic, who issued their first domestic release, You Can't Stop Rock & Roll, a year later. The album followed the same raw heavy metal direction of their debut, and was even more consistent from a songwriting and performance standpoint. Several of Twisted Sister's best anthems reside here -- the title track (which was one of the band's first videos to be aired on MTV), as well as "The Kids Are Back," "We're Gonna Make It," and "I Am (I'm Me)." But besides a ballad that vocalist Dee Snider wrote especially for his wife, "You're Not Alone (Suzette's Song)," the album is comprised of 100 percent heavy metal -- "Like a Knife in the Back," "Ride to Live, Live to Ride," "I've Had Enough," and "I'll Take You Alive."

Twisted Sister
Formed in 1973, Twisted Sister combined the theatricality of the glam rock movement with the sharp edge of groups like David Bowie and Alice Cooper to conjure its one-of-a-kind sound. The band made its bones on the Tri-State area’s club circuit before signing with Secret Records in 1982 for its debut, Under The Blade. Soon after the album’s release, the British label went bankrupt.

The group rebounded a year later, when Atlantic Records signed the band on the strength of a powerful performance on British television. Twisted Sister’s Atlantic debut, You Can’t Stop Rock ’N’ Roll, was certified Gold.

The band’s 1984 follow-up, Stay Hungry, was a Top 20 smash that stormed the charts with “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” a pair of fist-pumping anthems of youthful rebellion that went Top 40 and helped the album sell more than three million copies.

Come Out and Play was released in 1985 and went Gold thanks to a tongue-in-cheek cover of the Shangri-Las’ “Leader of the Pack,” a longtime live staple dating back the band’s club days. Soon after 1987’s Love is For Suckers, Twisted Sister stopped performing live.

More than a decade after its last show, Twisted Sister reformed in 2001 for a benefit. The quintet quickly picked up were it left off, notching an astonishing run of more than 9,000 (and counting) performances, 75 headline festival dates performing in front of two million people in over 23 countries.

In 2006, the band returned to the charts with A Twisted Christmas, a best-selling, holiday smash album that buzzsaws through yuletide classics and was hailed by the Associated Press as the “second greatest Christmas album ever made” behind Elvis. That same year, the Long Island Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Twisted Sister.

Rock of Ages, a current Broadway hit with five Tony® nominations, features Twisted Sister prominently in its storyline as well as the band’s iconic anthems, “I Wanna Rock and “We’re Not Gonna Take It” which rank world wide among the most requested and licensed (movies, TV shows, commercials) songs of the 80’s.

Twisted Sister is one of a select few legendary bands that still tours with its original recording line-up intact.

Twisted Sister’s 38-year legacy includes sales of more than 12 million records (35 Gold and Platinum awards from 8 countries) and their electrifying stage show has made them one of the most successful rock festival attractions in history, currently headlining the worlds biggest rock festivals in 28 countries.

This album contains no booklet.
