Alice Cooper Killer 50th Anniversary

Alice Cooper Killer 50th Anniversary


Our next Alice Cooper limited edition screenprint commemorates the recent 50th anniversary of what many consider to be the band's finest record, Killer

Johnny Rotten from the Sex Pistols heralded Killer as "the best rock album ever made."  

Alice Cooper and his bandmates had been working toward the mainstream breakthrough they enjoyed with "I'm Eighteen," the hit single that drove the success of their third album "Love It to Death," through some pretty lean years. Now they'd finally tasted success — a Top 40 album and single, and better gigs.

"A lot of people have hit albums," Cooper says. The trick is what you do with that momentum on the follow-through. "Can you hit it out of the park with that one?" Cooper asks. The answer — a resounding yes — arrived a little less than nine months later, on Nov. 27, 1971.

"Killer" more than lived up to the promise of their previous release. An artful eight-song master class in commanding the spotlight, it offset the full-throttle rock 'n' roll swagger of tracks as contagious as "Under My Wheels" with darker, more experimental touches and an epic progressive rock suite designed to prove that they could play their instruments much better than some tin-eared critics had suggested.
