    The Paul Ryan song catalog gets smaller by the day. Dee Snider, lead singer of the band Twisted Sister, issued a cease and desist order to the Romney campaign for playing the band’s 1984 hit, “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” at rallies. “There is almost nothing [Paul Ryan] stands for that I agree with, except the use of P90X,” Snider said. Snider’s order comes just days after Tom Morello, lead singer of Rage Against the Machine, Ryan’s favorite band, wrote an op-ed in Rolling Stone saying that Ryan is “the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades.”
