During a recent conversation with BBC Radio, Alice Cooper has revealed his all-time favorite songs by naming many legendary tracks like Welcome To The Jungle, Bad Medicine, I Hate Myself, Start Me Up, and many more.
As you might already know, Alice Cooper has released his twenty-eighth studio album named Detroit Stories that features fifteen never-released-before songs last month and the latest record of Alice got positive critics from reviewers. The average score of the album on Metacritic is 71/100 right now.
While Alice Cooper is still promoting his latest album, he was recently interviewed by BBC’s Raised On Radio last week and revealed his favorite songs of the ’80s. He called many legends like Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
Here is what Alice Cooper said:
“My first choice is ‘Welcome to the Jungle,’ Guns N’ Roses. We took them on their very first tour and I knew how great that band was. And this album might have been one of the greatest debut albums ever.
My second choice is ‘Bad Medicine,’ Bon Jovi. I loved the first couple of songs and everything, but this song for some reason was the one that rocked a little harder than the other ones and could be redone by another band. Some band should do a harder version of it.”
“My third choice is ‘I Hate Myself for Loving You,’ Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. A Desmond Child masterpiece, Joan Jett is a rock chick that just knocks everybody out – the longevity, the real deal. ‘I Hate Myself for Loving You’ is just one of those great, well-written songs.
My ultimate ’80s choice is ‘Start Me Up,’ The Rolling Stones. This song just shows that The Rolling Stones were The Rolling Stones no matter what they gave us.
It had that great Keith Richards opening, then Mick just kills this song. To this day, they are still writing songs like this and they are the architects of modern rock ‘n’ roll, as far as I’m concerned.”
