Stay Hungry is the third studio album by American heavy metal band Twisted Sister, released on May 10, 1984, by Atlantic Records. The album contains the band’s two signature songs: “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock”, both of which remain a staple of ’80s glam metal and rock. According to RIAA certification, Stay Hungry is the band’s most successful release by far and their only platinum album. Eventually, the album achieved multi-platinum status in U.S. with sales of more than 3,000,000 certified copies by 1995.

During recording, producer Tom Werman brought some songs by NWOBHM band Saxon for the band to listen to, this led to a conflict with Dee Snider who understood it as Werman wanting the band to replace some of his songs with Saxon covers. Guitarist Jay Jay French also claims the band lost two songs that they wanted on the album due to Werman’s influence

Twisted Sister performed the song “Burn in Hell” during a cameo appearance in the 1985 film Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. The song “Burn in Hell” was covered by black metal band Dimmu Borgir on Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia. “We’re Not Gonna Take It” was also covered by Bif Naked on the Ready to Rumble soundtrack. The two songs that comprise the Horror-Teria segment became the basis of Twisted Sister lead singer Dee Snider’s 1998 film Strangeland, in which Captain Howdy was played by Snider himself. The “Captain Howdy” segment of the “Horror-Teria” suite would later be covered by the death metal group Broken Hope on their album Repulsive Conception and in 1999 by the Swedish heavy metal band Morgana Lefay on their Symphony of the Damned, Re-symphonised album.
