Dee Snider insists it was at least a decade before he realized We’re Not Gonna Take It - the band’s signature hit - had a tune that might have been lifted from the Christmas carol O Come All Ye Faithful.
“A friend of mine, we were talking about songs that borrowed from other songs, like George Harrison’s My Sweet Lord and He’s So Fine,” Snider told us in an interview promoting his musical Dee Snider’s Rock 'n' Roll Christmas Tale, which begins a run at Toronto's Winter Garden Theatre Tuesday.
“And he brought it to my attention - (sings) We’re-no-go-nna-take-it!.. O-come-all-ye-faithful! - and I was like, ‘What?’ I sang in the church choir until I was, like, 19 years old. So it wouldn’t surprise me if I’d borrowed something over the years.”
