From: crathopper Date: June 4, 2001 at 16:54
I know alot of people who wouldn't give this one a chance because they got sick of We're Not Gonna Take It and I Wanna Rock (and who didn't) but the rest of this disc is pretty damn good.

From: TIM Date: July 7, 2001 at 17:45
I never get tired of good music. People love or get sick of whatever the crowd tells them to. If I ever liked it- I still listen to it. Don't let them tell you they grew out of it- they are sheep, and lack the balls or guts to admit it.

From: Motley Date: February 4, 2002 at 15:05
Never get tired of this 2 rock anthems. I grew uo with this album. Great great great!!!!!! SMF's 4ver!!!!!

From: HG Date: March 2, 2002 at 23:17
This album started it all for me. The whole thing is great, and unlike most 1984 releases, it doesn't sound dated.

From: Tony Date: April 19, 2002 at 9:53
Up there with 'Shout At The Devil' & 'Out Of The Cellar' as a 80's metal classic that still stands the test of time. It's funny because people who constantly rag on 80's metal seem to have a soft spot though for this particular album. I think it's because no matter how old & jaded you get songs like 'We're Not Gonna Take It' just encompass that 'old people suck & kids rule' so much it can't help but make you smile.

From: Knuckles Date: April 23, 2002 at 17:48
I hate to go against everybody,but I didnt like this one as much as the 2 not listed.You cant stop rock n roll and under the blade are twisted sister to me.This got a bit cheesy for my taste but to each his own.

From: samolice Date: May 17, 2002 at 11:53
this bans was great this album was great and i miss them.

From: KEEF Date: August 18, 2002 at 4:14

From: Nift Date: September 6, 2002 at 22:48
not bad but not great EXCEPT for Street that is a great rock song

From: Baris Date: September 19, 2002 at 2:01
Hey, look at Dee Sneider in that awesome album cover! I think this man was the Marylin Manson of 80s. I was a huge TS fan in my child-schoolboy days and yeah, although not being a masterpiece 'Stay Hungry' is one of the rock-metal classics of those years. It is just a metal-party album and the songs are quite fun. Don't get stuck into 'I Wanna Rock' and its funny video. Just live the whole album because it deserves this.

From: stevie Date: October 29, 2002 at 14:55
A true classic never dies! 'Stay Hungry' is without a of Twisted Sisters' best albums. I'm a big fan of 80's metal and this album is essential to any heavymetal fans collection.Even though 'we're not gonna take it' was way too over played, other tracks like 'smf','the beast' and 'stay hungry' make this album a headbang fest.

From: jay Date: November 2, 2002 at 9:14
the origins man!!! haha I bought this in tape with Ratt's out of the cellar andthe first WASP years later I bought them on CD, quite essential for anyody that likes 80's Metal

From: ART Date: November 23, 2002 at 21:48
This is the T.S. classic, (even though they played Were Not Going To Take It to death, it's even still a classic!)Not as hard as Under the Blade, or You Cant Stop R&R, but it has some of the best melodic hard rock songs ever on it. This is an essential, fun to listen to album!

From: iaffprofireman Date: November 23, 2002 at 21:52
I agree w/ my buddy Art 100%. T.S. is versitile, they can play hard, like on the first 2 albums, or play more melodic like this one and Love Is For Suckers ( which was a good, but unfortunately under rated album too ) This is a T.S. classic, it's about music that is fun, not some deep spiriual, classically influenced type group. but a FUN group to listen too.

Hey iaffprofireman, no offense intended, you get a lot of people posting multiple opinions under different names. Usually they're not legit, my apologies dude.

From: Date: January 29, 2003 at 1:08
This album was ordinary to say the least. Poor production and basic, simplistic song arrangements...come on people, wake up and smell the mediocracy. If it wasn't for 2 MTV hits this band would have been nothing...where are they now??? and it doesn't take much to attain a hit on MTV. popular purely because of their gimmicky look...musically they were no Rush or Metallica (who have stood the test of time). music for brain-dead musically ignorant 13 year olds!!!

From: T-BONE Date: January 29, 2003 at 1:46
Must you compare everything to Rush and Metallica? They are completely different styles of bands and music.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: January 29, 2003 at 1:59
13 year olds need music too. If every band sounded like RUSH, then we'd all be brain-dead.

From: TIM Date: January 29, 2003 at 1:59
I hate to burst your bubble but Metallica is sloppy on the axework. Rush is clean. Dream Theater is more technically proficient than Rush. Don't get me wrong- Rush is great. Twisted Sister indeed has faults but they are fun to listen to.

From: Fizz Date: January 30, 2003 at 2:50
Metallica are NOW sloppy on the axework. Not so much so in their early days. Kirk could play good solos when he felt like it. Nowadays he just leans on the wah-pedal and lets it go. A shame. As for Twisted Sister, I prefer their harder, first two albums. Shoot 'em down!

From: TIM Date: January 30, 2003 at 3:25
I think you meant NOT sloppy on the axework there Fizz. He does slip on the older stuff if you listen closely.

From: Fizz Date: January 30, 2003 at 4:54
No, I did mean now. That solo at the end of 'Bleeding Me' is godawful. I can't remember his last memorable solo. Probably 'Nothing Else Matters.'

From: TIM Date: January 30, 2003 at 4:58
Sorry man.

From: Fizz Date: January 30, 2003 at 5:53
Think nothin' of it.

From: RichieRocker Date: January 30, 2003 at 19:36
Kirk Is awesome! He has a new attitude where he says'a guitar solo doesnt have to fast to kick ass' I just wish he would play like he used too and rip up the solos! And your right Fizz He relies too much on the wah Pedal. Rumor has it that they finished there album and are having a summer tour. Rock on Friends!!

From: Scandinavia Date: June 25, 2003 at 6:45
TS tried to pull the strings on this album and more or less succeeded...I mean, their biggest hit ever is here and you all know which track I'm talking about...A bit more experimental than previous efforts. Better than 'You can't stop...' but the production here just lacks the balls which their next album proved they really had...Maybe I've just grown tired of this album???

From: Scandinavia Date: August 24, 2003 at 12:47
Saw them perform at WACKEN this year....WOW!!! They surely kick ass...I simply stood there paralyzed in awe....Original line-up and 1984 era make-up and clothing...Like stepping into a time machine...Truly Amazing! I almost cried when they played 'The Price'...All other bands at Wacken including Diamond Head & Slayer among many others were driven headlong into the ditch by the sheer power of TS...40000-50000 people literally left the ground simultaneously during 'I Wanna Rock' What a blast!

From: sparkyass Date: February 6, 2004 at 22:19
an all time metal classic!!!!!!great songs, dee sounds killer, just a fun album

From: Impaler Date: February 28, 2004 at 12:42
Good in its time and had wide appeal. Too bad after this one they became a bunch of S.M.F.s!

From: Metal Health Date: March 26, 2004 at 14:38
yeah!!!!!!!! Twisted Sister in Brazil on August 28th!!!!!

From: pablo Date: April 7, 2004 at 12:22
A mi modo de ver el mejor LP del grupo americano ,cada tema es un himno del Hard ,imprescindible

From: Date: April 12, 2004 at 22:35
I'll rate the songs in my order of favorites because there isn't much else to say about a cd that helped define the music we all love. 1. Don't Let Me Down 2. We're Not Gonna Take It 3. Burn In Hell 4. Stay Hungry 5. Street Justice 6. I Wanna Rock 7. The Price 8. S.M.F. 9. Captain Howdy 10. The Beast The fact that I Wanna Rock comes in at 6 indicates the quality of the songs here...

From: jack Date: May 19, 2004 at 7:00
In the price,they have the best ballad twisted sister ever produced(THEY DON'T PRODUCE TOO MANY BALLAD ,DO THEY?)!In we're not gonna take it,they have the best song the twisted sister ever produce(Debatable though)! And in stay hungry,they have the best album twisted sister produce(no doubt bout that)!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 15, 2004 at 16:31
The classic album that eventually ruined the band. You know the hits, but the album tracks are also strong, such as 'Stay Hungry' and 'Don't Let Me Down'. 8/10

From: uusiolli Date: August 15, 2004 at 18:22
Ask me and I'll say this they best effort. Very catchy songs and just plain and good rock-production. No gimmicks. I was asked to be a dj for one party, that was 80's-theme. Not hard-rock party but plain 80's. Before the party there we're quite many people saying: Remember to play I Wanna Rock. We're Not Gonna Take It was nearly as much requested. 9/10

From: Metal80s Date: December 14, 2004 at 4:48
This cd is awsome. Most people just know Twisted sister from there 2 cheesy videos for Were Not Gonna Take It, and I Wanna Rock. Stay Hungry is a great song about determination, The Price as well, Captain Howdy with it's psycho lyrics sound like something Cooper or Ozzy would write and Walstreet Justice is awsome written soung about misjustice. Behind the make up and cheesy videos were bad ass rockers that had more to say then how many groupies they could bang.

From: ED Date: January 14, 2005 at 9:43
This is their classic and most popular record! I love the tracks 'We're Not Gonna Take It', 'I Wanna Rock', 'Stay Hungry', and 'The Price'. But the whole album is cool!! You're an S.M.F., hahaha!!!!

From: Raiven Vainn Date: January 14, 2005 at 16:27
It deserves the rating, SMF & Burn in Hell are my personal favourites, if it wasnt for the cover, it would have sold alot more lol.

From: Andrew Date: June 1, 2005 at 1:30
Although most 80's hair albums were loaded down with filler, this one has solid material from beginning to end. The only weak spot here might be 'The Price'. Leave the power ballads to Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. 'Burn In Hell' is a classic, and 'The Beast' is probably one of the most underrated metal songs of all time. 9.5/10

From: Tiago Date: June 26, 2005 at 5:30
This is one of my favourites albuns ever it's pretty dam good!i'm a SMF!

From: The Godfather Date: January 19, 2007 at 19:13
TS manage to fuse the MTV-lovin' singles (which I still love) with classic metal tracks reminiscent of their past like Burn in Hell, The Beast and Horror-Teria. I love this album -with its versatility there are no fillers, just some different styles and textures throughout. To dismiss them as not being musical geniuses is to miss the point. This is a classic!

From: pie75 Date: February 14, 2009 at 9:46
man when u listen 2 this album doesn't it take u back 2 when u were young it was and is still a cool album 2day no they weren't great musicians but they wrote killer songs and dee is 1 of the ultimate frontmen i just wish i was old enough 2 see them when they came 2 aus in '85 yes were not gonna take it is badly overplayed but that don't make it shitthe whole album is an '80's metal classic from start 2 finish uhfortunatley this was also the begining of the end 4 them but i'll always love this album

From: hair metal again Date: July 6, 2011 at 4:41
very good release by TWISTED SISTER with the 2 mega hits "we re not gonna take it" and "i wanna rock".those 2 songs are classics of that era and everybody must own this release because of these.the rest of the songs are ok and the whole seems essential

From: CC Date: July 30, 2012 at 17:12
Just replaced my CD copy with the 25th anniversary edition. Absolutely brilliant value for money, and the second disc is a great example of how songs that didnt make the original release arent necessarily bad songs. Couple of them made the Dee Snider solo album from a decade or so ago, and the all new song "30" is a perfect example of why Twisted need to do a new album of all new material (and I am not talking about a christmas one). With the likes of 30, Heroes are hard to find and the two new songs that made the Club daze II CD, prove they still have another great album in them.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 13, 2015 at 17:52
A classic of the band,the album that put them up at the highest peak back then and probably their best effort so far(mainly because of its commercial status) includes 2 major hits in the shape of "I Wanna Rock" & "We're Not Gonna Take It" fave one is the one that gives the album its title "Stay hungry"...tracks 6,7 & 9 are also good ones...i own the vinyl so i dunno about the bonus disc...enjoyable stuff...85/100

From: Auslander Date: May 5, 2021 at 4:23
1984 was one of the best ever years for hard rock. We had amazing gems from Van Halen, Ratt, Hanoi Rocks, Black N Blue, Dokken, Helix and Autograph. But I am choosing Twisted Sister's "Stay Hungry" as my pick for 1984 (the glory years 1982-1992). This album really managed to rule the airwaves, especially MTV with their great and humorous videos (I Wanna Rock especially). This group didn't take themselves too seriously but they really put in the hard yards to finally make it. And in doing so, carved a permanent place for themselves in pop culture. Everyone in the world has heard "We're Not Gonna Take It" and only a handful of people couldn't take it anymore. Grade A.
