The fuse YouTube channel gets the scoop from rock legend Alice Cooper about his take on current so-called “rock” bands Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers.
“Rock and roll is not about happy, happy, happy, everything’s OK. ‘We’re the Lumineers. Let’s clog dance,'” he mocks. While Cooper says that there is a place for that music, it’s not in rock and roll.
“Mumford & Sons are great at what they do,” he says. “But it’s not rock and roll. Don’t call it rock and roll. That’s an offense to rock and roll.”
