Dee Snider, the lead singer of Twisted Sister, is completely on board with his 1984 hit record «We’re Not Gonna Take It» being used by Ukrainians amid Russia’s invasion — and he said as much in a Twitter post on Saturday.

«I absolutely approve of Ukrainians using «We’re Not Gonna Take It» as their battlecry,» he tweeted

«My grandfather was Ukrainian, before it was swallowed up by the USSR after WW2. This can’t happen to these people again!» added Snider.

Snider sent out the hashtags «F–KRUSSIA» and «F–KPUTIN» in previous Twitter rants and pressed in a tweet on Sunday that his grandfather would stand by Snider’s remarks if he were alive today.
