The Top Ten

this song is such an epic masterpiece of shock rock! Alice Cooper made a job in this one


I just heard this song today while watching MTV Rocks... and I must say that it is one of the greatest songs I have ever heard in my entire life... and I listen to a lot of Metal bands from the 70s and 80s...

Definitely one of Alice's best...
EPIC! One of the most amazing songs I have ever heard. Some of the best harmonies come from the chorus "I wanna hold you, but I better not touch (DON'T TOUCH)... " So amazing

4I'm Eighteen
Alice's best song and one of the best song I've ever heard. Love it
Put this in the top ten. Man. All the trouble times as a young man this hit the nail on the head. What is wrong with the rest of the rest of the bunch of the rest of you guys.
I listened to this song in 2013 and I could still relate to it as much as any kid from the 70's perhaps could.

5Only Women Bleed
This song is breath taking, I know it's a ballad, but it's one of the best Alice Cooper songs of all time.
Long live the god of shock rock, welcome to my nightmare ALICE COOPER!
By far the best song by Alice Cooper!

8Hell Is Living Without You
I love all Cooper's songs but this really should be in the top 5 along with The Great American Success Story and You're My Temptation just to name a couple.
Amazing song with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora
This song is better than anything prior to it, should be #1 on this list

9Halo of Flies
Everyone means that is Number 2. So its 19. Indeed Number one. But the fans of the killer album are all dead. Heroin killed them. The Song will live forever.
No contest. This was the bands best song ever. Oly women bleed should be in his top 10 as well.
I am Alive and Killer was one of my first longplayers. And its not forgotten: Metal Hammer Germany choose it to the ten most important longplayers of the 70ies. Yeah great! And much better than Poison.

17Ballad of Dwight Fry
Poison is Alice Cooper's biggest hit
Ballad of Dwight Fry is Alice Cooper's best song

The insanity, the groove, the creepy circus atmosphere it is all over the top and truly beyond amazing
Should be higher! Love this song so much. Personally I prefer it to poison..
Best song ever by him..
I am really not into old stuff but after listening to this..

32He's Back (The Man behind the Mask)
Shocked not to see this song in the top 10, awesome totally love it, its like a story that carries you away
I haven't so much to say just: THIS SONG IS PURE EPICNESS.
People always voting the same songs as Poison (that's one of my favourites, nothing to say, I love that) but there are so-called "unknown songs" of AC that everyone should know. Dragontown? Where's it?
Anyway, I'll always like this song. It reminds me like the pure style of that years, and I find it damn cool.

41I Love the Dead
The whole billion dollar babies album is probably the best album Alice Cooper has ever made. To me, the two best albums ever made by Alice Cooper is Billion Dollar Babies at first place, and Welcome To My Nightmare at second place. Of course we can discuss far and wide witch one of the albums is the best, because the billion dollar babies album has songs like, Hello Hooray, Elected, Billion Dollar Babies etc; And Welcome to my nightmare has songs like Welcome to my nightmare, The Black Widow, Only Women Bleed (witch was rated as one of the best ballads ever made by Alice) and of course Steven, one of the most discussed songs by Alice, is the song about himself, maybe it is about a imaginary childhood dream etc. BUT, my point, is that all the songs in the top ten list is good songs, but you can't always just base it in which songs are mostly liked by the people, beacause, the public will always like the most mainstreamed songs, it would be more "reliable" if the public had heard more songs from him (and every other band) than just the songs that are played over the radio.
And I love it too

42Might As Well Be On Mars
The first time I heard this song my dad was playing it in the car and I actually asked him if it was Alice featuring another artist because it really didn't sound like him. Still one of his best and my personal favorite. Deserves to be in the top 10 at least


Speaking of underrated songs does anybody remember this one? It's a slower more mellow song which builds up to something powerful and awe-inspiring. The guitars, keyboards, vocals and lyrics all just feel, well special. A truly epic song.

43Burning Our Bed Listen to sample

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS! Why isn't there hardly any early Alice songs up there! This, Billion Dollar Babies, Ballad of Dwight Fry and so many other Alice Classics are stranded down here! It's absolutely absurd. I vote this, because it's a brilliant song. I remember when I was about 8 years old, my mum put this on on the way to school. It's the first song I ever heard of Alice, and it's the first song I ever fully appreciated, and it's the song that has set me off on my love for music 8 years later. But why is all the newer stuff higher than songs like this?! I'm not suggesting there bad in any way, but this is a classic! And it's a song that defines Alice's career! Should MUCH higher in my opinion.
Blair, Bush! Say no more!

This one's a classic, I'm surprised it isn't at least top twenty. This is one of his biggest hits anyway. And the fade out is hilarious.
