Hall of Fame Essay

2011

Brad Tolinski

By any standards, 1973 was an exceptional year for rock & roll. Its twelve months saw the release of such gems as Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy, the Who’s Quadrophenia, Stevie Wonder's Innervisions, Elton John’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and debuts from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Queen, and the New York Dolls.

But the most provocative and audacious treasure of that banner year was Alice Cooper’s masterpiece, Billion Dollar Babies, a brilliant lampoon of American excess.
