Heavy Metal Valhalla:

Twisted Sister : Stay Hungry (1984)

Fronted by Dee Snider, Twisted Sister performed for over a decade before having their major breakthrough with this 1984 release. Their signature mix of hard rock, heavy metal, glam, and outrageous theatrics resonated with audiences, and their Top 40 anthems We’re Not Gonna Take It and I Wanna Rock became MTV staples of the ’80s.
