The warriors that are parents of pediatric cancer patients have a new and perhaps unlikely ally: Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider. The ’80s metal band frontman appears in a video directed by “Mindfreak” magicianCriss Angel, singing an acoustic, stripped-down version of his iconic 1984 battle cry for disaffected youth, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” to help raise awareness for pediatric cancer research and treatment. The result is surprisingly powerful and emotional, and it brings new meaning to the song any parent who grew up in the ’80s already knows by heart.
