Movie Info

In the mid-1970s, Twisted Sister claimed glitter rock for their own, cross-dressing their way to headlining every club within 100 miles of New York City. With gigs six nights a week, they were the most successful live bar band of suburban New York, fueled by their stage presence and aggressive setlists. But by the early '80s, they found themselves balancing on a double-edged sword, hugely popular with local audiences but without a national following or a record deal. When Twisted Sister finally got their big break in 1983, they became one of the biggest glam rock bands of the decade. To anyone who knew the hard-fought battle they'd won to get there, the band that killed disco was no overnight success.
