Storyline

They were the Grand Funk of Glam and the NY Dolls of Metal. Some considered Twisted Sister a joke, others called them the greatest bar band in the world. While microcosm of Punk/New Wave was taking over NYC in the mid 70s - early 80s, Twisted Sister was battling their way to the top of a vast suburban, cover-band bar scene that surrounded NYC in a 100 mile radius, yet existed in a parallel universe.

We Are Twisted Fu*king Sister Rocks the Doc!
13 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a must see documentary for the Twisted Sister fan. You know the influence the band eventually had, now you can hear about their beginnings, their raise to notoriety, and everything in-between in a story that is told exceptionally well. Do not expect to see the aftermath of their We're Not Gonna Take It days (no cheesy behind the music shite here), this film is about the band, how they started out, the struggle they endured, and the success that catapulted them into the mainstream. An honest and informative film that long time fans & those discovering them for the first time will wanna rock. Regardless of how much or how little you think you know about the band that came from 70's glam-rock & punk and started the glam-metal genre of the 80's, this is a film you don't want to miss.
