With the release of "The Last Temptation" in 1994, Alice Cooper revealed his most shocking secret to his fans, that he is a Christian. This might explain his long term appeal as a performer, for song lyrics from “Dead Babies” and “Go to Hell” reveal a deeper significance than the titles suggest.
“My last six albums have been more cohesive. "Brutal Planet" was a prediction of society and "Dragontown" is after the prediction comes true, when it is done, it is done and you are stuck. "Along Came a Spider" is about a fictional serial killer, but he falls in love with one of his victims and wonders, what if I am wrong?
My songs deal with good and evil. I grew up in a Christian home and I could not get it out of my system. My lyrics were never Satanic. A Christian can live in the world of arts and entertainment.”
