SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER is a documentary about the musician, charting his transformation from a Detroit preacher's son into a snake-wrangling shock rocker.

Language

Uses of the terms 'f**k' and 'motherf**ker'. Other, milder terms such as 'shit' and 'asshole'.

Drugs

Cooper's cocaine addiction is explored and there are references to him 'freebasing' and locking himself in his house 'with a rock the size of a baseball'. There are also references to celebrities smoking marijuana and taking acid during the sixties. The references to drug abuse are entirely aversive and it is made clear that Cooper came very close to death.

References to a chicken having been ripped apart by audience members during a rock concert. There is also footage of Cooper breaking baby dolls apart on stage and pretending to hang himself and have his head chopped off by a guillotine. Blood effects are quite clearly fake.
