Did You Know?


The band had three different lead singers before Dee Snider joined in 1976. Their original singer, Michael O'Neill, came up with the name, although he didn't remember doing so. According to Jay Jay French, O'Neill called him from a bar and said he had the perfect name: Twisted Sister. French loved it, but the next day, O'Neill didn't remember any of it. See more »
