Watch The (Surprisingly Touching!) Piano Ballad Version of an 80’s Hair Metal Anthem

If you would have asked me last week if the 1984 Twisted Sister classic “We’re Not Gonna Take It” had ever made me cry, I would have laughed and said no. No way. That was before I saw this.

This week, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has teamed up with Criss Angel’s HELP (Heal Every Life Possible) charity and turned the song into a surprisingly touching plea to help children with cancer.

On September 12th, Angel’s HELP will throw a fundraising launch party and auction at the Luxor in Vegas that will feature guests like Richie Sambora, Vince Neil, Mike Tyson, Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo, Jerry Lewis, Wayne Newton and a ton more big names. The site calls it “an unforgettable event benefiting pediatric cancer research, treatment and ultimately a cure,” saying that “100% of every cent donated will go directly to fund pediatric cancer research.”

Find out more and get your tickets to the event here.

Then check out the original Twisted Sister version, plus more fun tracks on Slacker’s Party Metal station!
