Snider has asked Republican vice presidential running mate Paul Ryan's camp not to play his hit song, "We're Not Gonna Take It." Ryan spokesman Brandon Buck wrote a pithy email in response: "We're Not Gonna Play It anymore." Snider says in a statement that he does not support Ryan and denounced use of the song, an anthemic 1984 hit for the glam metal band. (AP Photo/Katy Winn, file)
