Alice Cooper is the king of shock rock. Imagine my surprise, however, when I stumbled across a vintage clip of Alice singing "School's Out" with...the Muppets.
Yes, Mr. Cooper dances with the Muppets while wearing a mortar board and graduation gown. At one point, the gown comes off, only to reveal a Muppet tail attached to the beloved Metaller. Well, you better watch for yourself. This clip is from 1978.
Of course, there isn't anything much "scarier" than rockers who sell out. I mean, I've already written about musicians who take a quick buck and have their songs featured in commercials...but what about musicians who actually STAR in commercials? Enter our friend Alice:
Here's a commercial for Staples:
Here's one for Residence Inn (yes, a hotel chain!):
Now, here's Alice Cooper (both the band and the man) in the 1970s. "I Love the Dead."
So, which Alice Cooper do you prefer? Shock rock, commercial, or Muppet friendly.?
My favorite Alice tune is still "Poison." I'll post it again because I can.
