Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Meta/Facebook‘s Mark Zuckerberg, has shared a video about cryptocurrency that is set to the tune of TWISTED SISTER‘s classic “We’re Not Gonna Take It”. Although Randi apparently meant it to be “a rallying cry for the women of web3,” the clip has attracted more attention for being a cringeworthy parody.
In Randi‘s reworked version, the chorus lyrics are changed to “We’re All Gonna Make It”, a popular slogan in Web3 communities.
“A decade ago, I sang this song on Broadway,” Zuckerberg says. “Today I sing this song, surrounded by new friends, as a rallying cry for the women of web3. Together, we can accomplish anything. And have fun doing it!”
TWISTED SISTER fans quickly started complained on Twitter about Zuckerberg using “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and criticized Snider for supposedly giving her permission to rework the song, to which Dee replied: “FOR THE RECORD: If someone sings @TwistedSisterNY Song we have ZERO control. As long as it is not being as a commercial and though she is promoting her personal beliefs, it’s not a paid commercial. This is parody.”
Later, after apparently conferring with his attorneys, Snider clarified: “ATTENTIONS ALL: @TwistedSisterNY has lawyers working on this now. It looks like it may not fall (as initially thought) into the ‘fair use’ category and we can get it stopped and taken down. But again…WHY DOES IT HAVE 2.5 MILLION VIEWS! @randizuckerberg”. Dee went on to refer to Randi‘s version of the song as “dog sh*t” and “murder” to listen to.
