    Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Dee Snider and Twisted Sister just in time for America's favorite drinking holiday. The legendary rockers created a new "mariachi style" mash up of their classic "We're Not Gonna Take It." It could be this year's Cinco de Mayo anthem.

    Dee and the band created this new, one-of-a-kind version of "We're Not Gonna Take It" with Hornitos Tequila for the brand's second annual Mariachi Mash Up; last year, Cheap Trick created a mariachi style version of their hit Surrender to kick off the concept.

    Watch the video below:



    Also, the song will be available for free download here as of today.

    More details:

    One lucky fan was able to participate in the making of the Mariachi Mash Up video. Norma Hartwell, of Weymouth, Mass., won the Hornitos Facebook sweepstakes and grabbed her maracas and flew to New York to rock out with Twisted Sister and real mariachis.

    "We had an awesome time giving one of our biggest hits a little Mariachi flavor with Hornitos Tequila. The mariachis we worked with were amazing- they thought of some really unique ways to put a new twist on 'We're Not Gonna Take It' and we have a feeling this song will be on repeat all night on May 5th" said Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider. "The song came out even better than we could have imagined."
