Alice Cooper Albums Ranked Worst to Best
You can’t kill Alice Cooper. Just look at the above gallery of Alice Cooper Albums Ranked Worst to Best for proof.
Between shock rock and show tunes, proto-punk and hair metal, Cooper has done it all. With an ear for melody and an eye for the macabre, he has survived just about every musical trend over the past five decades.
Even though Alice Cooper the man (who was born Vincent Furnier) has endured, Alice Cooper the band (which formed in the late ’60s) did not. The group split in 1975, after creating some incredible recordings that helped its frontman become a solo act and pop culture icon.
In addition to all that great music, Cooper has appeared in movies, on TV shows (hosting his own specials!) and in commercials. You’ll also find him on golf courses and, for a while at least, inside his own Alice Cooper-themed franchise restaurants.
But it all comes down to the music, which has spanned the late ’60s through today — he’s rarely stayed way too long over the past five decades. And that’s something worth celebrating. From 1969’s Pretties for You through 2011’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare, he’s built a catalog of hits, misses and true classics. Plus, his revolutionary stage shows have inspired tons of artists over the years and practically become a genre itself.
As we rank Alice Cooper’s albums from worst to best, we’re combining both the band and solo records into one large, strange and hugely influential catalog. Dive in!
