Canadian rock outfit Theory of a Deadman scored one devilishly good cameo for their music video for "Savages" in the form of Alice Cooper.
The Godfather of Shock Rock recites a few lines in the video — see below — for the band's titular single off their fifth studio album that was released in July.
"Time after time we never learn from our mistakes," Cooper says at the 2:12 mark, Blabbermouth noted. "When we will realize we're all just the same / We're all humans fighting human nature to stay alive / We're predators teaching our children to be just like us / To fear and hate like us / Will we ever realize we're just savages? / God save us all."
Theory of a Deadman singer/guitarist Tyler Connolly praised Cooper's contribution to the track.
"He was great, you know he was a pro," Connolly told Loudwire. "He had never seen the lyrics before. He said, 'I have this.'"
Cooper recently talked about some contemporary acts and their stage shows, saying that Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie put on performances that are "derivative" of what he started back in the late 1960s.
"Rob Zombie does a really good show, Marilyn Manson does a great show," he said. "Gwar and Rammstein, it's all derivative of what we started doing, but the Alice show is still different. You focus on Alice as the main character, so we don't use pyro and things like that. I want the audience to get sucked in by the character because everything happens either to him or because of him."
The "I'm Eighteen" singer went on to praise female pop acts for keeping stage shows fresh.
"I think the girls at this point have taken over the shows," he said. "You go look at Shakira, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga — they're doing Alice Cooper. That's what we were doing in the late '60s and early '70s through to now."
