Although the band is sometimes regarded as glam metal due to its use of makeup,  frontman Dee Snider considers the term to be inappropriate. Segall hated the name "Silver Star" and pushed to have it changed. Michael O'Neill took over the lead singer role from Wayne Brown who had left.

Even though Twisted Sister retired from live performing in , we remain connected to our worldwide fanbase and hope that all of our fans get through this very difficult time. The Corona Virus is affecting the whole world and the members of Twisted Sister are not immune from its effects in some form. While none of the band members and their immediate family has had it, we are all taking actions, as everyone should, to minimize the risk. Washing hands, wearing facemasks when we go out and limiting human to human contact as much as is reasonable are immediate actions we all need to take at this time. All of our friends in the music business are out of work on the touring side and we feel for all of them. There is no corner of the health and working world that this disease has not totally transformed into a world in which we never thought we would see in our lifetimes.
A difference was that theirs was even faster than most, and largely fueled by overexposure instead of the eventual shift in musical trends that felled virtually all of their peers by decade's end. This was a particularly cruel fate for a band that put in nearly a decade, fighting tooth and nail, before earning their shot to break through, as evidenced by their incomparable live performances. But the longview of rock history has thankfully seen fit to repay Twisted Sister. The New York quintet fronted by Dee Snider is remembered by fans whose formative musical tastes they affected and whose minds they welcomely warped , and thus it is our pleasure to choose the Top 10 Twisted Sister Songs. We begin our list of Top 10 Twisted Sister Songs with the standout title track from their final album of the '80s. So, the evidently pessimistic Love is for Suckers saw them go out on a cynical but undoubtedly powerful note. But everything turned out in the end, as we know, thanks to unstoppable head-bangers like "Sin After Sin. For all the pop hits on Stay Hungry, Twisted Sister could also do straightforward metal as well as anybody of the day. The massive "Burn in Hell" starts off in Alice Cooper slow-burn territory before shifting into a thunderous riff worthy of Judas Priest. Yet, ironically, when the song later came under fire for allegedly promoting violence and sadomasochism, Dee Snider admitted its lyrics actually referred to a friend who underwent a routine operation.
