Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Certified triple platinum by the RIAA 11/95

Amazon.com

Influenced by New York punk bands like the Ramones and Dictators, as well as by traditional heavy metal ensembles, Twisted Sister created brash, simple songs that buzzed with subversive energy, giving the band the appeal of bad-boy cartoon characters. Their third album, Stay Hungry, featured the classic rebel anthem "We're Not Gonna Take It" as well as more uptempo tracks like "Burn in Hell" and "S.M.F." (which, in true metal fashion, stands for "Sick Motherfucker"). No one disputes Twisted Sister's competence level. Simply put, they couldn't play well enough to save their five-year recording career, but frontman Dee Snider's outrageous stage presence and accidentally hilarious lyrics ensured that their time in the limelight was thoroughly entertaining. --Jon Wiederhorn

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.

Pop-Metal has a deservedly bad reputation amongst serious metalheads, but that doesn't mean that there isn't any good stuff out there, with Twisted Sister's "Stay Hungry" being some of the best. "Stay Hungry" is relatively early in the pop-metal cycle, so they haven't taken it too far yet and washed away all the heaviness in a sea of overproduction. This ain't gonna crush anyone's skull, but it's not Bon Jovi or Poison either, not by a long shot. In short, it's pop, but it's still metal too, no doubt.

At only nine tracks, "Stay Hungry" is relatively short and sweet, with no obvious filler. This isn't a terribly complicated album, instead relying on a few catchy riffs and memorable vocal lines. The band isn't likley to wow anyone with their chops, but they're tight and efficient and play with greater intensity than most of their peers. Snider, however, is the standout. He might not have the sorta range and technical ability found with some other metal singers, but he's a perfect fit here, creating an always effective mixture of melody and aggression. Also, I must admit to being amused by sometimes the good-naturedly juvenile lyrics.

"Stay Hungry" is not exactly overloaded in variety: it has a few particularly poppy, anthemic numbers (We're Not Gonna Take It, I Wanna Rock), some faster, more metallic tracks, (Stay Hungry, SMF, Don't Let Me Down), some brooding, moodier songs (The Beast, Burn in Hell) and the obligatory ballad. (The Price) Again, everything here is definitely listenable, and there are enough true highlights to maintain interest from beginning to end. The two most famous tracks, "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock" and perhaps most likely to grate against more hardline metalheads, but I enjoy them both immensely.
