  1. Alice has done plenty of great songs and albums since the original 8 albums. The Last Temptation and Brutal Planet album for instance are masterpieces. Might As Well Be on Mars off of Hey Stoopid may be the best song he has ever done.

    1. In my view, only one song doesn’t belong on the above list: #12 Cold Ethyl, and Alice Cooper truly only made 8 studio albums, from Pretties For You to AC’s Greatest Hits.
