Alice Cooper launches campaigns to become Prime Minister and President

Veteran rocker says he wants to impose a ban on taking selfies, except on a designated National Selfie Day

Alice Cooper has launched simultaneous campaigns to become Prime Minister of the UK and President of the USA.

The website aliceforprimeminister.com outlines the rocker’s unique manifesto, which includes “adding Lemmy to Mt Rushmore” and putting Peter Sellers on the £20 note. Check out the full eight-point manifesto below.

1. Getting Brian Johnson back in AC/DC
2. A snake in every pot
3. No more pencils, no more books
4. Adding Lemmy to Mt Rushmore
5. Peter Sellers on the £20 note
6. Cupholders required for every airplane seat
7. Ban on talking during movies in movie theatres
8. Ban on taking selfies, except on a designated National Selfie Day

A press release for the singer’s political campaigns explains: “Alice Cooper is tired of the rhetoric – the mudslinging – the media frenzy. Keeping his snake in his cage and the guillotine in storage, he is putting people before career. Alice Cooper wants to be elected.”

“He is asking his fellow Americans, his British friends and all those around the world who are disillusioned with their leaders, to join The Wild Party,” the press release continues. “Alice Cooper is tackling the everyday concerns discussed among his fellow woman and man – the ordinary, decent hard working (and rocking) people he meets and entertains every day while performing nearly 100 concerts a year around the world.”

To accompany the campaign, Alice Cooper has recorded a new version of his classic track ‘Elected’, which originally came out in 1972. Listen to the new version below.
