Alice Cooper - Hey Stoopid


Alice Cooper - Hey Stoopid - Meaning of the song


"Hey stoopid" song has a strong anti-drug message in which Cooper warns young people about the dangers and pitfalls of drug abuse and espouses the benefits of living drug-free. The track also addresses suicide among teens and young adults and stresses that it should never be an option, no matter how depressed, lonely or isolated an individual may feel.


This was the only charting hit from the Hey Stoopid album, although Cooper's concert favorite "Feed My Frankenstein" is also on the tracklist (that's the one Cooper performed in the famous concert scene from the 1992 comedy Wayne's World). In addition to Slash, Ozzy and Satriani, other well-known musicians who made guest appearances on the album include Steve Vai, Nikki Sixx, Vinnie Moore and Mick Mars. It was helmed by Peter Collins, who has also worked with Rush, Bon Jovi and Suicidal Tendencies.
