Shock Rock

Alice Cooper

Shock rock brought an edgier sound, occult lyrical content, and graphic stage shows and images to rock music.  The imagery and content was the main influence in the creation of the extreme metal subgenres of black metal and death metal.  It also influenced bands in other metal genres such as nu metal‘s Slipknot and industrial metal’s Marilyn Manson.

Artists include Alice Cooper, KISS, and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
