Cooper has run for president in every campaign since releasing his classic Elected in 1972. In a campaign video Cooper said, ““Well, I’m Alice Cooper and I’m a troubled man for troubled times. I have absolutely no idea what to do, so I should fit right in.”

Looking back on writing Elected, Cooper told Classic Rock: “In America at that time, we had Richard Nixon, who was the ultimate target. Your President is always a focal point for satire, but Nixon – you couldn’t satirise him enough.”

He continued: “Plus, the 1972 presidential elections were coming up, and I thought, ‘Who’s the most unlikely person you would ever want as President?’ And Alice Cooper was that person!”

Cooper released his latest album, Road, in 2023. Commenting on the record, he said: “For Road, I wanted the band to be involved in the foundation of all the songs. I only see these guys when we’re on the road. So, I wanted them to be as tight as they are for the show but on all new material. When you have a band this good, I believe in showing it off, and this is my way of doing so.”
