"I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my band Twisted Sister's song, 'We're Not Gonna Take It,' in any capacity," Snider said. "There is almost nothing he stands for that I agree with except the use of the P90X."

Snider's not the first musician this year irate over Republicans' use of their songs: Just last week, Silversun Pickups told Mitt Romney to stop using their song "Panic Switch" at campaign events. Ryan recently expressed fondness for the music of Rage Against the Machine, prompting a pointed response from guitarist Tom Morello in a Rolling Stone op-ed.

Update, Aug. 23, 12:35 p.m. ET: According to CBS News.com, Ryan's spokesman, Brandon Buck, responded to Snider in email, saying: "We're Not Gonna Play It anymore."
