From the "Who the hell asked for this?" file, comes... DEE DOES BROADWAY. Yes, the legendary Twisted Sister frontman is releasing a new album... of Broadway show tunes. :blink:




Dee Snider will release his new studio album, "Dee Does Broadway", on May 8 via Razor & Tie. The CD features Dee's powerful voice and theatrical persona as he exudes his rock ' n' roll take on several Broadway classics. The new album will coincide with the release of his first-ever autobiography, "Shut Up And Give Me The Mic" (Gallery Books) on May 8.


"Dee Does Broadway" track listing:


01. Cabaret

02. The Ballad Of Sweeney Todd

03. Big Spender (with Cyndi Lauper)

04. Mack the Knife

05. Whatever Lola Wants (with Bebe Neuwirth)

06. Music Of The Night (with guest violinist Mark Wood)

If you wanna hear a sample of this monstrosity, go here... but don't say I didn't warn you. Strong stomach required.

I am more curious as to what demographic Dee's angling for here. I mean ANY one who still knows who he is is here at HH and the last thing we will admit to is listening to Broadway musical numbers?


I mean who is going to buy this? My Gram doesn't know who Dee Snyder is...

Seems he will do anything for a buck nowadays.


Dee doesn't need to do "anything for a buck," he's pretty much set for life just off the publishing for "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock." Every time one of those songs gets used in a TV show, a movie, or a commercial (and those tunes have been used in a lot of 'em) he gets paid mad benjaminz.


Since Dee's already got more money than he'll ever need, I'd say he just did this stupid Broadway record cuz he was bored, and because he could. I mean, you don't cut a record like this expecting to MAKE money. There's no audience for it, nobody's gonna buy the f*cking thing, he won't make a nickel!!

Dee Snider's doing a book signing in my area this week for his "Shut Up and Give Me the Mic" autobiography... my brother is planning on going. I told him to ask on my behalf, "A Broadway album? Dude, what the f*ck?" :rofl2:

My bro wimped out and didn't ask Dee about what possessed him to do such an album ... :(


However, he did report that the store was playing the "Broadway" CD during the signing so he had to hear it the whole time he was waiting on line... and he called it "pure torture" :rofl:

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
