Alice Cooper Attempts to Encourage the World with COVID-19 Rock Ballad "Don't Give Up"
Published May 15, 2020If all had gone to plan, Alice Cooper would have just recently wrapped his North American tour. Instead, just like everyone else, he's been stuck at home, where he's penned a new tune called "Don't Give Up."
The song has arrived with a new, ridiculous animated video that looks like it came straight out of the Uncharted Zone. In it, Cooper and his backing band blast through a schmaltzy ballad featuring plenty of platitudes.
The track opens with Cooper delivering the following spoken-word mantra:
Yeah, I know you're struggling right now. We all are — in different ways. It's like a new world that we don't even know. It's hard to sleep…even harder to dream. But look: You've got seven billion brothers and sisters all in the same boat. So don't panic. Life has a way of surviving and going on and on… We're not fragile — and we sure don't break easy.
