Alice Cooper

No one defined shock rock like Alice Cooper. Cooper used violent (and vile) theatrics — simulated executions, the chopping up of baby dolls, and draping himself with a live boa constrictor - and explicit lyrics to become a controversial yet hugely popular figure in the early-and-mid 1970s. After a decade of fluctuating record sales, Cooper returned to platinum with the 1989 LP Trash. Though respected by a new generation of hard-rock fans, he never reached that kind of popularity again.
