Rock and roll is all about rebellion. And if you ask Alice Cooper, there’s nothing more rebellious than being a Christian.

In a new interview discussing his faith, the shock rocker admits, “People talk about Alice being a rebel. There was never a rebel, more of a rebel than Jesus Christ. You want to talk about a rebel. He was the ultimate.”

Speaking to Pastor Greg Laurie, Cooper says that finding his way back to the church saved him from a life of cocaine and sin.

In 1995, Cooper opened the Solid Rock teen center to help youth stay on the right path. “I watched a couple of 16-year-old kids do a drug deal on the corner and I went, ‘How does that kid not know he might be a great guitar player? Or that other kid might be a drummer?” he reveals.

Which other musicians are open about their faith?
