Band line up
With a career spanning over 50 years, Alice Cooper AKA Vincent Damon Furnier, has well and truly earned the title of Godfather of Shock Rock. He is largely known for his unique style of singing, dramatic stage presence which is often inclusive of the likes of swords, guillotines, electric chairs, and fake blood and his iconic heavily eyeliner looks. Finding his way to the big time with the iconic, "I'm Eighteen" originally with the Alice Cooper Band. When the band split in the 70s, Furnier took the name Alice Cooper and made it what it is today. The best way to describe who Alice Cooper is taken from his video interview, Alice Cooper: Prime Cuts, "He is the psycho killer in all of us. He's the axe murderer, he's the spoiled child, he's the abuser, he's the abused; he's the perpetrator, he's the victim, he's the gunslinger, and he's the guy lying dead in the middle of the street."
Labeled as one of the most radical rock groups of the 60s' they encouraged people to get political whilst also listening to their unique style of rock. They are credited with also being one of the first groups to swear on their records. It is often stated they were intrinsical in paving the way for punk music and after 50 years, they still manage to muster up the same chaotic punk energy in their shows.
Watch MC5 perform their iconic song Kick Out The Jams
Often compared to fellow Australian rock legends ACDC, Airbourne knows how to play the hell out of a live show. Formed in 2003 by two brothers, Joel O'Keeffe on lead vocals and lead guitar, and Ryan O'Keeffe on drums, they have now played all over the world and opened for bands such as Iron Maiden and the Rolling Stones. Their music has featured in WWE, various video games and movie trailers. Expect high energy, loud, hard rock.
