Alice Cooper making sense

Alice Cooper: If you are listening to a rock star in order to get your voting information on who to vote for, you are a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons.

It's true what I said, that most of us dropped out of school to chase girls, drink beer, and play rock 'n' roll, and don't read the Washington Journal (which, by the way, doesn't even exist, so you see how much I know).

That doesn't mean we don't have opinions, and it doesn't mean we don't care about our country, or what's going on in the world. It just means I don't think our opinions should matter to anyone else.

C'mon, Alice! Don't you know that the times they are a-changin? Today rock & roll isn't about independence or rebellion; it's about groupthink, peer dependence and blindly following know-nothing idols. How else is it that all the kids who are "doing their own thing" look and act and think and sound like all the other kids who are doing their own thing?
