Alice Cooper releases Alice Cooper Goes to Hell
Alice Cooper Goes to Hell is a concept album by Alice Cooper, released in 1976.
A sequel to Welcome to My Nightmare, this concept album was written almost exclusively by Cooper with guitar player Dick Wagner and producer Bob Ezrin.
With the success of "Only Women Bleed" from his first solo effort, Alice continued with the rock ballads on this album. "I Never Cry" was written about the his drinking problem, which would in one year send the performer into rehab. Cooper called the song "an alcoholic confession".
The "Alice Cooper Goes To Hell" tour of 1976 was completely cancelled prior to commencement due to Cooper suffering from anemia at the time.
In 2005 the first track, "Go to Hell", was featured as the theme song to the sixth episode of Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil titled "Human Sacrifice". The song was also featured in the 2009 video game Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, and in the 1986 movie The American Way.
