During a recent interview with AXS TV for the show “At Home and Social Online” series, shock rocker Alice Cooper praised Metallica. He first discussed their 1984 song “Fade To Black” from their sophomore record “Ride the Lightning” revealing:
“All of a sudden, metal that was underground is now at the forefront — you know, your bands like Iron Maiden and all these bands, and then here’s Metallica who are getting played on the radio who would not have ever gotten played in the ’70s.”
“I always looked at Metallica as being sort of the metal band,” he emphasized, adding that their combination of talent, anger and good live performances made for the perfect cocktail.
“They spoke for a generation that before was a little bit afraid to say they were metal. Now these kids are going, ‘We want a little anger in our rock and roll. We don’t want it to be nice.’ That’s why they liked me — ’cause I wasn’t nice. Alice Cooper was a threat. And I think Metallica was a threat, but they were also making hit records.”
