Day 97

Alice Cooper- Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits

I never was a big fan of Alice Cooper, so a Greatest Hits album is all I need. All I really ever knew were the songs played on the radio like "School's Out", "I'm Eighteen", and "No More Mr. Nice Guy". Alice Cooper left a bad taste in my mouth when he came out with that song "Poison" in 1989. Man, that song still sucks.

It's funny to me that you hear about Alice Cooper being "heavy metal". I never thought he was metal at all and listening to this album only confirms that. Shock rock does not equal metal. Musically, this band was just Detroit rock n' roll.

Every song I'm hearing on this record is pretty good, but doesn't make me want to go out and get the catalog or anything. I still like the songs you hear on the radio the best. It would be cool to see Alice Cooper live though. As long as he didn't play "Poison".
