Last night I was innocently flipping through the channels and landed on Jay Leno, just before he was about to introduce whoever the musical guest was for the night.
I didn't know who he had booked so I stayed tuned, eager to enjoy another quality musical guest. But imagine my surprise when camera panned over to the stage and instead found...
I thought these guys were long dead. I guess that explains why Dee Snider looks like he's been exhumed.
That's right, Twisted Sister is now celebrating their 30th (and final) year as a band, and to cap it off they've released a new holiday album called... you guessed it - "A Twisted Christmas".
And last night they played their very twisted version of O Come All Ye Faithful which (cleverly?) superimposes the words directly over the same melody as We're Not Gonna Take It. Hmm, he didn't figure that out until now? I remember thinking that was a rip-off 22 years ago when that song first came out.
Anyway, the act was entertaining - in a "it's really hard to not watch a train wreck" kind of way. The poor band looks exactly like a weathered version of the original, except for the "please just shoot me now" expressions they now wear on their faces.
Here's the link to a web site that has another link at the bottom if you want to see the video. You won't be surprised to find that they managed to add a sexy "video chick" to O Come All Ye Faithful. But then again isn't that their job?
I mean duh - this is Twisted Sister!!!
