You have to sing a song like School's out with passion, or don't even bother, you know? Though Alice himself probably only sang it with passion a few times. After that, well, what can you do? Especially if you're like 30 years old and singing about school. It's got to be difficult to dredge up any kind of enthusiasm. I probably listened to that album a thousand times, that and Killer. When I was 13 years old I thought I would listen to those records every day, forever. But I haven't heard an Alice Cooper record in 30 years. Who failed, me or Alice? Only the philosophers know for sure.
