Dee Snider has made himself very clear on where he stands on wearing a mask during the coronavirus pandemic, so he was none too pleased where Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” was used during an anti-mask demonstration.

The demonstration took place at a Target in Florida with a small parade of people walking through the store telling people to take off their masks while playing the Twisted Sister hit.

Snider caught wind of the video and retweeted it along with the caption, “No…these selfish a–holes do not have my permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause. #CutTheS—.”

Back in July, Snider responded to criticism of him wearing a mask in a photo by tweeting, “Yeah I know. They are all f—ing a–holes. If there is a God they will get covid and die. No, I’m not kidding. #thintheherd.”
