JT’s Ultimate Mixtape: Twisted Sister edition

It has been too long since I posted an Ultimate Mixtape tracklist. I intended to do these once a month, but it’s more work than you would imagine. I like to be thorough and accurate, so I will go back and actually listen to each album, at least the first few seconds of each song, to make sure that I picked the right song for that album. Of course, you can disagree with my picks, this is entirely subjective…but to be honest with myself, I have to revisit the material.

I have been working on Twisted Sister for a while now. The problem is not the studio albums; those were easy. But the Club Daze records and the live releases were not as familiar to me; it took some time to listen to them, and then listen again, and try to find good material for the Ultimate Mixtape. In the end, I skipped over a couple of the live albums. I’ve said in the past that I’m not a huge fan of concert recordings, so it wasn’t too painful to say no to Astoria and Wacken. Alright, let’s get down to it. But first, the rules:

  • Every studio album must be represented by one and only one song.
  • That song does not have to be an official “single” released by the band to promote said album.
  • Compilation albums can be included, but only songs that are new, previously unreleased, or remixed songs from prior albums are eligible for the list.
  • Live albums are a great way to sneak additional songs into the mix. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a good live version of “I Wanna Rock.”

As with other Ultimate Mixtapes, I have to throw in some bonus tracks for the band members’ other projects…
