A VERY Real Nightmare: Alice covers "Born This Way"!

Love it or Hate it.....your reality has now been changed. Listen closely to the lyric changes Alice has made to this song and tell us what you think.

One person's nightmare is another person's dream. I really wish they would do something together. A song, a show or even a tour!!

Alice has never been afraid to throw a curve ball as he once said "Rock n Roll gets too homogenised"

Actually, without offering my opinion, I wanted to hear everyone else's....



Unless, of course, you prefer to go back to the conversations of "Best Album Cover", "Worst Alice song on Lace and Whiskey", etc........which every thread seems to dissolve into.

I am only stirring the pot because Alice will not be touring Los Angeles, California for a long time....I got some time to wait....and we ALL know how I feel about W2MN.


So......How do you feel about Alice covering Lady Gaga's Born This Way? Does it work? Is it great? or is it silly? (Hmmmmmmm, maybe I should create a poll)

As NotSoPerfect said, this is already happening.

I think the band ROCKED it. It's very melody driven, and Alice sings it pretty darn well.

I like pop, so I don't see any problem with this.

yeah, I really liked it, thought it rocked, I saw him a few years ago do a very rocking version of Jailhouse rock. When you've seen him so many times it's great to see something outside the box.

Great idea, connects his legacy of outrage and liberation with a new generation of rock fans.

True, that I like pop, and it's not that I have a problem with this.... but a rocker doing a pop song...mmmm.... Did you ever saw that clip of Iggy Pop singing ''Ray of light'' at the induction of Madonna at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? Poor Iggy...

I absolutely love it, I prefer it to the original (and I actually like Gaga). I sort of wish they make a proper live recordning of it so I can keep it.

Gaga herself commented on it on her Facebook and Twitter

"@realAliceCooper I am not worthy, Sire. Has anyone seen Alice Cooper cover "BORN THIS WAY" during his show? The way he changed the words to be about him was so rad. I want to hang out with FRANKENGAGA"


As of right now It has 17,055 likes on her Facebook page with 1,065 comments. Almost every comment is positive and her fans seem to really like Alice. Not bad for exposure is it :)

Seem to have missed that one in my travels? Where was it announced? Nothing on AC.com that I can see.
