** On his radio show, he mentions how prior to her death he had no idea Music/JanisJoplin had been doing heroin, and had he known he would have staged an intervention. It's clear he regrets not noticing since she would later die of an overdose.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: The most deplorable bits in his show are usually the funniest as well. One longstanding concert skit is for Alice to beat up a young actress while singing a very tender ballad about domestic violence, then immediately follow it up by dancing with a life sized ragdoll and singing about necrophilia. Beating your wife to death is horrible, waltzing with her obviously phony corpse is hilarious.

* BaseBreaker: The turn to a more theatrical style away from straight hard rock starting on the ''School's Out'' album and continuing once Alice went solo.

* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: During a 1969 concert in Toronto, Cooper picked up a chicken someone had thrown onstage and tossed it back into the audience, thinking since the bird had wings, it would fly. Instead, it plummeted into the audience, who promptly tore it to shreds. This story quickly mutated into a rumor that he'd actually bitten the head off the chicken himself. Cooper received a phone call from FrankZappa asking if he'd done so. When he replied that he hadn't, Zappa said, "Well, don't tell anybody you didn't do it!"

** Alice's early 80's new wave period has a decent number of fans, even those who consider themselves to be hardcore metal heads.

** ''DaDa'' is a critical favorite despite the fact that none of its songs have ever been played live and that Alice doesn't even remember recording it.

** Surprisingly, Alice's conversion to born-again Christianity and inclusion of Christian themes on his albums largely averts this. ''The Last Temptation'', ''Brutal Planet'', and ''Dragontown'' are often considered his best work since ''Go To Hell'', ''Welcome to my Nightmare'', or even ''Billion Dollar Babies'' by fans and critics who would normally shun Christian rock. It helps that the albums are stylistically very similar to his earlier works (Alice already went to Hell once, after all) and that the lyrics focus more on general morality that happens to be derived from Christianity instead of more general Bible-beating that some born-again artists engage in.
