Dee Snider is not going to take it. The singer for '80s rock icons Twisted Sister made a point to distance himself and his band's song from a group of anti-maskers who recently terrorized a Fort Lauderdale Target store. The anti-maskers blasted Twisted Sister's 1984 hit, "We're Not Gonna Take It," while they marched through the store encouraging shoppers to take off their masks.

"No...these selfish assholes do not have my permission or blessing to use my song for their moronic cause," the singer shared on social media. He added the hashtag #cuttheshit.

Snider's tweet ignited a firestorm of responses from both sides of the debate: "Wait what!?!? isn't that exactly what your song is talking about?," replied one person. "I find it hilarious that so many sheeple are still drinking the kool-aid when science has proven masks are WORTHLESS when it comes to protecting aginst this or any other virus."

>"They're having a great time and think it's a big joke. So sad our next gen has come to this," countered another. "I hope my kids and grandkids are the change."
