Best Songs by Alice Cooper

The Top Ten

1 Poison

this song is such an epic masterpiece of shock rock! Alice Cooper made a job in this one - rock2metal

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

Best song ever. so much cooler live though

2 School's Out

Alice rocks this one is his most famous by far I love this song because its also a different style its no dead babies its happy

Amazing classic song, and so fun to play on guitar !

There are a lot of on go on arguments about if schools out or poison Is alice cooper's best song. I think schools out wins by a long shot.

The perfect song for a big chunk of my adolescent life.

4 I'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.

I lived that song

5 Only 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!
I LOVE THIS MAN!

Great Song. Can't believe it's not in the top ten

6 Feed My Frankenstein

awesome song, one of my favs along with poison and schools out

This song has such a mega chorus and a great combination instruments not to mention Nikki sixx playing bass

The chorus is amazing

This song is ' perfect!

7 Bed of Nails

Best Alice Cooper song. How is this so low down the list. Brilliant lyrics with 2 totally different interpretations that blend together so well.

Should be up there with Poison!

Song about sex? Awesome! Try playing this song while doing it with your girlfriend.

This song is absolutely the best alice cooper song.

8 Welcome to My Nightmare

The godfather of shock rock proved he wasn't a one-sound band with this awesome tune. Jazz, Metal, Rock, & Blues are all incorporated in the song. I can't help, but jam out to it and Dio does a great cover of it too (Alice and Ronnie were friends, I guess.).

I hope I didn't scare you!

Its a great song with a bit of everything; jazz and rock!

I think you're gonna like it

In concert he BRINGS OUT A SNAKE!

9 Hell 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.

This song is better than anything prior to it, should be #1 on this list

Amazing song with Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora

Best song ever, a true diamond

10 Halo 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.

I love Halo of Flies! It sticks with you and fits perfectly with the album but still being a progressive rock song. Get it to number One now!

This is the best song from the killer album. The guitar solo in the beginning is just Wow!

SO DAMN GOOD!

The Contenders

11 Brutal Planet

My favorite. The song is awesome all on its own, but what makes the song twice as awesome is that it speaks the truth about our planet. My favorite song and my favorite album.

Love how heavy this song it. It punches you in the gut and the lyrics among his finest

I listen to it once and then I can't stop. This song is addicting! This should be at least in the top ten for sure.

A masterpiece of a song off one of my favorite Alice albums ever. - letsrocktoday49

12 Hey, Bulldog
13 Hey Stoopid

Another great song By Alice! I love how he says Hey Stoopid all throughout the song. It makes me laugh just a bit. I LOVE you, Alice Cooper!

I LOVE THIS SONG

14 Steven

Listen to this song and you'll understand why it is one of his best works.

My mom likes this one.

15 Man With the Golden Gun
16 Pick Up the Bones

I love this song. It really sends a strong message off of the brilliant, Brutal Planet album. - warrantsbestgirl

17 Clones (We're All)

One of the best Alice Coopers songs for sure. Should be in top 10.

Its not real Alice Cooper but it's a nice change, a fresh sound, and it's catchy!

Too Cool - Catchy as Hell

A classic

18 Dead Babies

What is this brilliant stuff doing down here, this song must be in 3 on top ten list, this song better than I'm eighteen, you've got to be joking me, this song purely awesome, as awesome as school's out and I think it's gonna beat no more mr nice guy, yeah come on guys, vote for this great song

Sincerely, Mr. Frankenstein

Second best song from killer. The lyrics just hit you as soon as it begins and the instrumental solo will slowly chill your spine

Yes this should be in top 10, it was one of my favorite songs as a teenager thanks Alice.

I agree with the BDB fans- this rocks

19 Teenage Frankenstein

This is an awesome song
MY HANDS ARE ROUGH AND BLOODY love that lyric I scared a few people

Classic 80s alice cooper. truly underrated

20 Billion Dollar Babies

One of his best

Great song!

21 Love's a Loaded Gun

Should be at top five songs... Just can't understand why is it so down...

Definitely Alice Cooper's best song. One of the best 80's song

This is Alice Coopers best song! Gets me so pumped up every time!

It's a good song

22 Spark In the Dark

AWESOME SONG! Great Alice Cooper sound! 2nd fave song on Trash after Poison. One of my favorite songs on my favorite albums!

great riff

23 Wind-Up Toy

This song deserves more credit. It's a great song and I think it's a song some people can relate to.

Great song. Should be top five in my opinion

24 Might 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 - Danielsun182

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.

Criminally underrated. It's a perfect mix of melody and awesome instrumental. One of my all time favorites. - Andrevalenca

This is his best song next to poison.

25 The Quiet Room
26 Ballad of Dwight Fry

Should be higher! Love this song so much. Personally I prefer it to poison..

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

Not a fan of Rock or popular music but there are a few songs that are so out there and messed up and this is one of them. I love it.

Should be in top 5.

27 How You Gonna See Me Now

This song is beautiful and only a true talent could write it. It should be in top ten. I recommend it to everyone who likes A.C.

This is a little different from his usual shock rock but it's still an amazing song.

One of his better ones

Excelent hit. Alice is very good

28 Go to Hell

One of my all time favorites by Alice Cooper. It should be in the top ten in my opinion. I also dig The Black Widow and Poison!

The best ever song of 70s

29 I 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 ...more

Billion dollar babies is simply a masterpiece and this is why. I love the dead is more slower (pretty much like sick things). Until the chorus it hits you with beat from slower to dead up beat

And I love it too

30 Teenage Lament '74

This is awesome brought me back to my teenage years when I heard it

Such an underrated song!

Very well written and performed

31 Roses On White Lace

It's sad to see that I had to post the first song off Raise Your Fist and Yell on this list considering that it's the best album from Alice.

Plain and simply one hell of a song.

32 Under My Wheels

This song is one of the best rock songs ever, one of Alice Cooper's best songs. I especially love the version with Axl Rose. THIS IS THE SPIRIT OF HARD ROCK! HELL YEAH!

Best song ever, this is the Alice Cooper song. This is the Alice Cooper song. Alice Cooper's song.

Classic rock at its best!

Rock n Roll at its finest! Alice Cooper at his best

34 Sanctuary
35 Killer
36 Be My Lover

Speechless. Can't believe it is only in 9th place!

37 I Never Cry

Oh all the songs that alice Copper did this one stands out as very different.. It is beautiful. He was a rocker but this song proves he had a quality voice and he could sing anything he wantes to.. Beautiful..

I love alice cooper songs

38 Gutter Cat vs. The Jets
39 Elected

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!

40 Why Trust You
41 Hello Hooray

Awesome song love the way it starts please get it up too the top 10

Top 3

42 Apple Bush
43 The Black Widow

This is an epic masterpiece by Alice Cooper. It's a great song and I love the intro by Mr Vincent Price himself. This song definitely deserves to be in the top ten.R.I.P. Vincent Price.

44 The Song That Didn't Rhyme

This is an underappreciated gem. It could just as easily have appeared on a Weird Al album.

45 It's Me

I have both the song and seen the video. The video was like one of the best

46 Department of Youth

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.

47 I Am Made of You

It's rare I love a song the first time I hear it, but this one hooked me instantly. It's the kind of song the Joker would sing to Batman.

I though the song was alright. Even though the song has auto tune

I am made of you is the best

48 Desperado

This is a classic song! It should be at least be up there. I always listen to it all the time although it's not my most fave but it's certainly one of my favourites, the song kinda reminds me of western movies. The Killer album is classically amazing
