'Troubled Man' Alice Cooper launches White House bid

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by In_The_Wind (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

The veteran shock rocker announced Monday that he is running for president with the slogan, "A Troubled Man for Troubled Times."

Cooper calls for late Motorhead frontman Lemmy's likeness to be added to Mount Rushmore, the massive mountain sculpture that honors four US presidents, and for comedian Groucho Marx to grace the $50 bill.Cooper's campaign so far consists of selling merchandise and reissuing his band's 1972 song "Elected." The song, a hit during Richard Nixon's successful re-election campaign, ends with a politician promising, "Everybody has problems / And personally, I don't care."

Trump, a real estate tycoon and former host of a reality television game show, himself shocked the political establishment by winning the Republican nomination.

1. I would tend to associate Marvin Gaye a little more with that particular "campaign theme."

4. Trump & Cooper the same: their run is a marketing ploy.

But I respect Cooper more.

And his brand will not suffer. Trump's already has.

5. You wanted an Einstein, but you got a Frankenstein.

Me and G.B., we ain't never gonna confess.
We cheated at the math test.
We carved some dirty words in our desk.
Well, now it's time for recess.

Love, love, love this song. Alice Cooper at his height.

Live, in May 2016:



The studio version:



He does have better hair than Donald Trump.

8. Lemmy

can't be up there, not American. If he was advocating for Iggy Pop, he'd get my vote. But maybe it's a posthumous thing. So, Lou Reed.

OOps, replied in the wrong spot, sorry.

14. Is he any less qualified than reality TV game show host Trump?

At least Cooper is actually a nice guy, (despite his signature song).
