We're Not Gonna Take It is a playful picture book echoing 1980s hair band Twisted Sister's most popular antiestablishment anthem. As part of their triple-platinum album Stay Hungry, "We're Not Gonna Take It" spent fifteen weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, reaching number twenty-one. With lyrics by Dee Snider and illustrations by Margaret McCartney, this picture book follows three toddlers on a mission to defy their parents, whether it be lunchtime, bath time, or bedtime. We're Not Gonna Take It is a story both parents and children can relate to, and a song they can enjoy together.
"'We're Not Gonna Take It' was a watershed moment in hard rock. It delivered a defiant song that originally shook up the establishment."
--Christa Titus, Billboard
"'We're Not Gonna Take It' is an indelible hit, whose instantly recognizable hook practically invites the listener to shout along."
