In a recent interview, Dee Snider from Twisted Sister stated, "I've been realizing it for a while, but again, I am an egomaniac and a narcissist but not to the point where I think, or if people say, if Twisted Sister should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" he said. "No, we shouldn't. They say, 'What?' No, we don't make that mark."
He noted that his band "had an effect and with me personally, apparently it goes beyond. Things like creating what became Headbangers Ball and going to Washington and fighting censorship. All these things together have made an impression on a lot of young musicians, and I've met so many of them -- mostly courtesy of my daughter dragging me to festivals and hardcore shows -- and it's amazing that all these young people wanted to work with me. I said 'young.' Compared to me they're young. It was just an incredible outpouring and very touching honestly."
