Alice Cooper Says Politics Has No Place In Rock Music

- Music and politics should not be mixed.
- That’s the word from Alice Cooper, who says, “I don’t think rock ‘n’ roll and politics belong in the same bed together, but a lot of people think it does — because we have a voice, and we should use our voice. But again, rock ‘n’ roll should be anti-political, I think.”
- Cooper says he formed his opinion as a child, when he’d play rock music to drown out his parents’ political discussions. “When my parents started talking about politics, I would turn on the Stones as loud as I could,” he recalls. “I don’t want to hear about politics, and I still feel that way.”
