Striking teachers in Oklahoma were seen on the news recently chanting Twisted Sister’s ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ and when Dee Snider took the stage for his week long stint in the Broadway musical ‘Rocktopia’ he dedicated the tune to educators.
It was an apparent shout out to the movement that began in Kentucky to raise awareness of the poor pay and under equipped classrooms that public school teachers all around the country are forced to deal with. According to website Ultimate Classic Rock, Snider “gave the teachers a tacit nod of approval on Twitter, noting that while “I totally support” the cause, he can’t help pointing out the irony of the band’s music being used in this way several decades after they were singled out by the PMRC.”
Judging by the video above and comments from fans on Twitter, Dee Snider is knockin’ ’em dead on Broadway and he’s no stranger to the Great White Way! Dee performed in the Broadway smash hit ‘Rock of Ages’ and recorded an album of show tunes hard rock style called ‘Dee Does Broadway’.
Snider is a guest performer in ‘Rocktopia’ through April 15th.
