The musical "Rock of Ages" is going to get a little twisted this month.
Life will be imitating art since Snider was the writer behind such '80s hair metal standards as "I Wanna Rock" and "We're Not Gonna Take It" - both of which are featured in "Rock of Ages."
Snider, who has a syndicated radio show, has appeared in the cult horror movie "StrangeLand" and a few TV reality shows, including "Gone Country" and "Growing Up Twisted."
"Rock of Ages" tells the story of two rockers who fall in love and battle an evil developer who wants to tear down the local club.
