Bif Naked Covers Twisted Sister For "Rumble"

Buff Canadian songstress Bif Naked has stepped into the ring to record a cover of Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It" for the soundtrack to the new wrestling flick, "Ready To Rumble."

For Bif, who released her major label debut, "I Bificus," on Atlantic Records last year, the song completes the musical circle that began when she was twelve years old, when she and her younger sister saw Twisted Sister open for none other than Iron Maiden in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

"We had tickets in the fourth row, center," Bif Naked recounted in a statement about the cover song, "and more than anything, I remember that in the process of rocking out, Dee Snider ended up spitting on me.

"I was so excited, I didn't wash my face for a week.... It was like Dee Snider had baptized me into the world of rock."

Bif has also completed a video for her cover of "We're Not Gonna Take It," featuring her performing the song along with her bandmates, guitarist Doug McCarvell, drummer

Mike Sage, and new recruit Gail Greenwood, formerly of Belly and L7, on bass.

The soundtrack to "Ready To Rumble" will be released on April 11, while the film, which stars David Arquette and Scott Caan as a pair of wrestling fans who attempt to help a former wrestler re-ignite his career, will arrive on screens on April 7.

Bif Naked will hook up with another successful late '70s-early '80s rock band, Loverboy, when she plays Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler, British Columbia on April 29.
