They're not gonna take it.

Twisted Sister have slammed Clive Palmer after discovering the Australian politician has used a re-written version of their hit track, We're Not Gonna Take It, in a new TV campaign. 

As noted by Blabbermouth, guitarist Jay Jay French was the first to speak out on the news, tweeting, "Twisted Sister does not endorse Australian politician Clive Palmer, never heard of him and was never informed of Clive Palmer's use of a re -written version of our song Were Not Gonna Take It. 

"We receive no money from its use and we are investigating how we can stop it."

Soon after, frontman Dee Snider, who is scheduled to kick off a special run of appearances in Australia this month, took aim at the United Australia Party leader.

"We are contacting our legal team to address this and if that doesn't work...I'LL BE DOWN UNDER IN THREE WEEKS TO DEAL WITH IT MYSELF," Snider tweeted. 

It comes only months after British outfit Chumbawamba also blasted Palmer for using their iconic 1997 song, Tubthumping, in a YouTube video, calling him a "Donald Trump-lite egomaniac" and "a ridiculous narcissist".
