Donald Trump has taken lots of criticism from musicians for using their music at his political rallies. But at least one rock band is A-OK with The Donald's love.
Canadian Business reports that Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider learned from Trump to “take credit for everything and put your name on it,” adding of Trump playing his music:
“He called and he asked, which I appreciated. I said, ‘Look, we don’t see eye to eye on everything—there are definitely issues that we’re far apart on.’ But thinking back to when I wrote the song and what the song is about, it’s about rebellion, speaking your mind and fighting the system. If anybody’s doing that, he sure is.”
Snider also had a comparison for Trump:
“Trump and Bernie Sanders are the two extremes. They’re raising holy hell and shaking everything up. That’s what ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It’ is about.”

And the rock star revealed personal details about “The Donald”:
“And we’re friends. I have spent time with Donald and his family. I don’t think either of us expected that we would like each other, but you know, Donald Trump is a pretty chill guy. He’s a frontman. When that camera goes on, he furls his brow, he does his thing. Off-camera he’s very self-deprecating. He makes jokes about being too orange and about his hair.”
Trump has led the presidential polls since this summer, and it looks like you're still gonna be able to take it at his rallies, given Snider's remarks.
