S.M.F. is the abbreviation for Sick Motherfucking Friends… as the fan club of Twisted Sister. Below is a short and sick motherfucking reminiscent of the most successful era of the band…

twisted-sister-under-the-bladeUnder The Blade – September 1982 – Secret
Rougher than it has to be.
More acute than the usual extreme sound of the times.
With a  poisoning heavy metal sound blended with a shocking rock elements, the Twisted Sister’s debut was just the warning for what was about to come.

You Can’t Stop Rock ‘n’ Roll – May 1983 – AtlanticTwisted Sister - You Can't Stop RnR.jpg
With a title album predicating their devotion to true heavy metal, full of despise for the punk-driven and the mass- pop-cultured media, Twisted Sister make their breakthrough with this iconic and adamant heavy metal lp. The band  reminds to music business but first of all to the fans that metal music is a street fighting music. After this, the world would know their name…

Twister_Sister - Stay Hungry.jpgStay Hungry – May 1984 – Atlantic
Stay Hungry has been classified by music and media industry as their most successful album, giving the band a world-wide status, thanks to “We’re Not Take It” and “I Wanna Rock”, two of the most famous songs ever heard in heavy metal.  But the real (overshadowed) dynamites here are the title-song, the emotional ballad “The Price”, the amazing “Don’t Let Me Down” and the dedication to band’s fans “S.M.F”.

Decline lurks, as the band tries to balance between its metal roots and the skyrocketing glam/hair metal scene of the time. Contrary to media talking and the legacy left, this is a very good album, with some memorable motherfucking twisted sounds… The last remarkable moment, the swan-song…
