Good for Alice Cooper and the other stars for taking part in this worthy cause. At this rate parents will demand their kids buy his albums.

Alice Cooper dreamed up the name for his group based on the idea of “a cute, sweet little girl with a hatchet behind her back.” On my Rockaeology blog at I tell the story behind “School’s Out.” Cooper said, “When we did “School’s Out,” I knew we had just done the national anthem. I’ve become the Francis Scott Key of the last day of school… It nailed the experience of being released from an educational institution, that elated feeling of freedom, and kids everywhere got it.”
