For a couple of decades now, Alice Cooper has been a guilty pleasure of mine. I always feel the need to explain that his earlier 70's music is much better and an important example of proto-punk, but that might change with his upcoming album. The latest single from that album, "White Line Frankenstein," once again merges his earlier Detroit proto-punk sound with his 80's era metal for a sound that will work for fans of all periods. Plus, it's fantastically theatrical, which is a must for any true Alice Cooper song. If you're looking for an extra level of coolness, the song also features Tom Morello on guitar! "White Line Frankenstein" is pure rock 'n' roll with the only excess being killer metal riffs, and you just can't go wrong with that.
