City Slang: Alice Cooper gives career advice
According to Classic Rock Magazine, Alice Cooper is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the âSchoolâs Outâ single by advising students about what do do after the exams are over.
Cooper said of âSchoolâs Outâ that, âItâs the song that launched my bandâs career â itâs every schoolâs anthem.â
âIt was Britain that made it a hit. Mary Whitehouse banning us was publicity we couldnât buy. All we could do was send flowers.
âAt that time, Schoolâs Out was very subversive compared to what was on the radio. Everything was pop-oriented, and here comes this song about kids saying, âLetâs blow the school up.â Luckily no one took it seriously â but they got the point that every single kid in the world absolutely hated school on the last day.â
However, Alice said that his own son recently graduated from university, and is now struggling to get the right job. Cooperâs advise? âMake some noise, will you? Someone I one knew used to say, âThe squeaky wheel gets the oil.â Good luck, my kiddies.â
