Dee Snider Cuts Footloose

From Yahoo!:

[Dee] Snider, frontman for Twisted Sister, whose 1984 hit "We're Not Gonna Take It" salutes teen rebellion, says he'll attend Hamburg Area High School's annual talent show next month when students plug in their amplifiers and let loose.

School administrators had threatened to bar rock bands from the show because of potential injuries caused by moshing [and because the students were all worthless and weak].

Snider, now a disc jockey at Philadelphia rock station WMMR-FM, heard about the controversy and ranted on air about it. School officials eventually backed down, and Snider helped arrange for a security company to work the show.

"For me, it was like freakin' `Footloose.' We're banning dancing?" Snider told The Associated Press Monday.
John Lithgow will also attend the show and plans to be outraged.
