In a Loudersound interview, Ghost’s Tobias Forge answered fan questions about a metal song that changed his life, citing Twisted Sister‘s ‘I Wanna Rock.’

Since 2006, Ghost has significantly impacted visually unique performances for the metal scene. Except for the lead singer Tobias Forge, all the band members use different face masks. Forge used to hide behind the persona of the Papa Emeritus, but after many fan theories over the years, he finally revealed himself.

On the other hand, Twisted Sister emerged on the glam rock scene in the early ’70s. They started playing for local clubs, but after a few lineup changes, it took them a few years to find their formal lineup. When Dee Snider arrived in 1976, the band finally found their groove. They began to make a name for themselves in New York.

When recently asked about the song that changed his life, Forge talked about Twisted Sister’s famous hit, ‘I Wanna Rock,’ released on the 1984 album ‘Stay Hungry.’ The musician said he was three years old when the song came out. He added that the track helped him discover himself as an artist.

Tobias Forge’s words on the song that changed his life:

“‘I Wanna Rock’ by Twisted Sister. That is probably the earliest song I remember being able to sing and rock out to. That came out in 1984 when I was three years old. I was lucky enough to have an older brother; in 1984, he was 16. A lot of who I am, why I am who I am, and my interests, are because of him. That’s my first memory of me thinking, ‘This is who I am.'”
