#14 – Twisted Sister – “We’re Not Gonna Take It” – (1984)

This song is quite famous for a number of reasons: the foremost among them probably being that it was one of a few songs that led to the formation of anti-free speech groups like the Parents Music Resource Center and eventually the “Explicit Lyrics” label you see on CD’s today. This song was on the “Filthy Fifteen” list of the most objectionable songs of its day – which meant it was pulled from stores such as Wal-Mart. Interestingly enough, Wal-Mart, just very recently, ran a TV commercial that features an instrumental version of this song. Hypocritical? Mind-blowingly so.
