Dee Snider may have approved the use of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” as a “battlecry” for the Ukrainian people, but he did not provide his approval of this parody involving the Twisted Sister hit. As reported by Blabbermouth, Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Meta/Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, has shared a video about cryptocurrency that involves a parody of “We’re Not Gonna Take It.”

Zuckerberg’s version of the song takes the classic line and puts a spin on it, her version saying, “We’re All Gonna Make It” – playing off the concept of making money off of cryptocurrency. Per Benzinga, Zuckerberg had worked as a spokesperson and marketing at Facebook and is the co-founder of Hug, a Web3 company. You can watch the video of the parody below.


Some Twisted Sister fans who caught wind of this parody on March 4th complained to Dee Snider, accusing him of providing Zuckerberg permission to use the song. In response to these accusations, Dee Snider wrote the following via Twitter:

“FOR THE RECORD: If someone sings @TwistedSisterNY Song we have ZERO control. As long as it is not being as a commercial and though she is promoting her personal beliefs, it’s not a paid commercial. This is parody.”

As the conversation on Twitter develops, Snider continues to comment on the video along with fans. The view count of the video catches him by surprise, and eventually, he shares that Twisted Sister’s lawyers are looking into the matter.
