American Made

Album: For The Love Of Metal (2018)
  • A track from Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider's solo album For The Love Of Metal, "American Made" is a patriotic song released during a very divisive time.

    "I was watching the Olympics and couldn't help but notice that no matter how 'at each other's throats' we all appear to be politically these days, amazingly we are all unified when it comes to our country against another," he said in a Songfacts track by track. "It made me realize that countries are like dysfunctional families: We may argue and fight amongst each other (You should have seen the extended Snider family Christmas this year. People literally almost came to blows. On Christmas!?), but should someone dare attack any one of us, the entire family will band together against the aggressor. This goes for all countries.

    This song is a song on unification - recognizing that there is a very important something we all share and should be proud of: where we are from."
