Alice Cooper: 40th anniversary of Billion Dollar Babies on In The Studio

Alice Cooper marks the 40th anniversary of "Billion Dollar Babies" on In The Studio.

Nothing could compare to the outrages and gruesome theatrical performance of Alice
in 1973. While the shock of it all made headlines and sold-out concert halls, Alice's music revitalized American Top 40 radio with "Under My Wheels" and "School's Out" six months earlier, followed quickly by "Elected", "No More Mr. Nice Guy", "Hello Hooray" and "Billion Dollar Babies".

Alice was able to say and do what he wanted using his own spotlight to poke not only the Watergate-embroiled Nixon White House, but the rock music establishment as well.

"I think a lot of true musical people who were really into music and that was their life, we were an embarrassment to them, because they couldn't say they didn't like our music,” Alice tells In The Studio host Redbeard. “They liked our music, they just couldn't digest our image. You know, everything that was sacred to them, we kinda spit on."
