When Twisted Sister got their big break in 1983, they became one of the biggest glam rock bands of the 1980s, drawing sell-out crowds to their live shows and defining early MTV through their outlandish music videos. But the band that killed disco was no overnight success. We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! recounts the wickedly appealing and never-before-told story of the ten grueling years leading up to Twisted Sister’s legendary break, as directly recalled by the band, their managers and their biggest fans. “Very, very, very entertaining. Engrossing. . . often hilarious.”—The Hollywood Reporter.
