In this week's issue, we speak with Alice Cooper about the 40th anniversary of his signature ode to teenage rebellion, "School's Out."
"I've never had a song or heard of any song that's had as much impact on kids," Cooper says. "That song is everybody's national anthem. From presidents of the United States to movie stars to guys you would look at in an airport and think were the furthest thing away from rock 'n' roll, they would come up to me and go, ''School's Out' got me through school.'"
Of course, fans of Cooper's syndicated radio show Nights With Alice Cooper know the man likes to talk, so we ran up with more than we could fit into this week's feature. So read on for our collection of Alice Cooper "outtakes."
