Editorial Reviews

Fronted by Dee Snider, Twisted Sister rocked the clubs of New York
and Long Island for over a decade before the group had its major
breakthrough with the 1984 Billboard Top 20, triple-platinum release STAY HUNGRY. Their signature mix of hard rock, heavy metal, pop, and outrageous theatrics fully connected with audiences on the album's pair of fist-pumping Top 40 anthems-and MTV staples-'I Wanna Rock' and 'We're Not Gonna Take It.' Rhino's 25th Anniversary Edition features the newly remastered, nine-track album on Disc One. Disc Two will further satisfy Sister's fans with 15 previously unreleased outtakes and demos from the original sessions plus a new track recorded just for this
collection by the classic 1984 lineup: Dee Snider, Jay Jay French,
Eddie Ojeda, Mark Mendoza, and A.J. Pero.

Customer Reviews

The bonus disc and extra "new song" was a great plus as well.
Brian Woody
I still greatly enjoy reminiscing back to the elementary school days when I'd be listening to this all the time at max volume on my CD player.
Gina M. Johnson
Twisted Sister's Stay Hungry is a great album- but they are not responsible for hair metal.

Stay Hungry is pretty much the best Heavy Metal album of 1984. You have your room shaking heavy crunchers like "Burn in Hell" and "S.M.F.", you have your catchy rockers like "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock", your fast paced "Stay Hungry", and your 2 1/2 minute ballad "The Price." All that, and you still have four other great tracks.
Some people will tell you Heavy Metal is stupid. Some people will tell you Twisted Sister is stupid. Well, some PEOPLE are stupid. They don't understand it; so don't let them get you down. Just crank it up and make 'em deaf.
"Stay Hungry" is a great album and should be in any Metalhead's collection.

Here's a post from Rhino Records regarding the remaster of "Stay Hungry". This explains the poor quality of this release and also the fact that Rhino has corrected the problem. It sucks that the bad copies made it out to the public in the first place but kudos for their fast action after catching the mistake.

[...]

"IMPORTANT NOTE: Some customers may have purchased a copy of the Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry 25th Anniversary Edition with lower than normal audio levels on Disc 1. The error was corrected as soon as it was discovered, however some defective copies were shipped to online shoppers and retail stores. If the edition you purchased has a defective Disc 1 and you would like a replacement, please email Dr. Rhino (Dr.Rhino@rhino.com) with TWISTED SISTER as the subject line for further instructions."

There you have it. For those of you that directed your anger at the band, they had nothing to do with this issue so you might want to re-think who to be mad at. Just swap your defective copy and hopefully all will be well. Peace.

PS - Disc 2 is excellent and worth the price of admission in my opinion! It's great to hear the demo versions and outtakes. Keep in mind that they aren't complete songs as they were just demos from the "Stay Hungry" sessions but they are very cool just the same. And the new song, "30", is great!

To me, listening to TS's Stay Hungry is similar to eating that midday Snickers,low on substance and completely unnecessary. Yet, somehow it's 100% self-satisfying!

I defy anyone to name a better group than Twisted Sister. They defined youth rebellion, angst, and tortured lives well in advance of all these fools today. Dee Snider was brilliant and always ready with the Shakespeare-worthy lyrics about the difficulty of life in these United States. If I could, I'd give it a million stars. Brilliance I say, brilliance!

What's the 4-1-1?

Twisted Sister labored day in and day out for more than a decade on the New York City club circuit before becoming a household name. When they originally formed in 1972 by guitarist Jay Jay French, the group was a glam cover band in the vein of the New York Dolls. It wasn't until 1976 that wild frontman Dee Snider hooked up with the group. It was Dee that become the chief original songwriter and got Twisted Sister going toward their path of rock stardom.

The group's first studio album Under the Blade was a hit by any standard, but it did cause quite a stir in the rock music underground. Atlantic Record released their follow-up album in 1983, You Can't Stop Rock and Roll to mixed reviews. Some say it might have been Quiet Riot's breakout into the pop charts that gave Twisted Sister and bands like them a chance to be heard. In 1984, the group released their third album Stay Hungry. And the rest, they say...is history!

Often overlooked is the albums title track "Stay Hungry." The song has such a great heavy metal feel and bounce to it as Dee Snider wails away vocally, and his twin guitar attack of Jay Jay French and Eddie Ojeda back him up with a wall of power chords. You know it, you love it, and most of you youngsters think it's a song for a nasal decongestant; it's the rock anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It." This is the one that got Twisted Sister noticed; for good and bad reasons.

Senator Al Gore's wife Tipper singled out the video for this song for its violent content and the impact it would have on America's youth. Mind you, this video was so cartoonish that if you actually threw someone out a window because of it, you have more problems than listening to Twisted Sister.

Many a Metal fan in the 1980s would tell anyone who would listen that all Glam Metal was for poseurs and any one of hundreds of different synonyms for homosexual. Glam Metal was for poodle haired cross dressers more interested in make up and picking up chicks than making music with any redeeming value whatsoever. By and large, this was true. Witness for example the excesses of Motley Crue, the effete foppery of Poison, the commercialised Pop/Rock of Bon Jovi, and the failings of any one of a number of other bands, like Faster Pussycat, Tiger Tailz, LA Guns, Bang Tango, Great White, Ratt, ad infinitum.
Occasionally though, a Glam Metal band managed to produce an album masculine enough to appeal to True Metal fans. WASP managed it with two or three albums, and Motley Crue almost achieved it with the rough and ready "Girls Girls Girls". "Stay Hungry" by Twisted Sister was another of these albums, and by far and away the most successful.
Pre-dating the decadence of the LA Glam Metal scene by a good few years, Twisted Sister moulded the hard rocking theatrics of Kiss and Alice Cooper to their own shape. While many bands forgot to learn the basics, like playing instruments and writing songs, with Twisted Sister, the music always came first. The outrageous image was merely a marketing tool. Iron Maiden were also wearing multi-coloured Spandex in 1984, and no one was questioning their musical validity.
"Stay Hungry" will always be best remembered for the two huge singles it spawned, and their hilarious accompanying videos. `We're Not Gonna Take It' and `I Wanna Rock' are both lowest common denominator shout along anthems of simplistic teen rebellion at it's basest level, but damn it, they are just so addictive, and the fun factor negates their obvious commercial intentions.
