"Teenage Frankenstein" is the second single by American rock musician Alice Cooper from his 1986 album Constrictor. Though the single failed to chart, it helped to make Constrictor Cooper's highest charting album since 1980's Flush the Fashion.

Along with 2 other Alice Cooper songs, "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)" and "Hard Rock Summer" (which was not featured on "Constrictor"), "Teenage Frankenstein" was written to be featured as part of the soundtrack to the horror film Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.

The 7" single featured a "live" version of "School's Out" as its B-Side. The 12" single featured "School's Out (Recorded Live)" as well as a "live" version of "Only Women Bleed". Both versions were in fact originally recorded in the studio for the Alice Cooper a Paris TV special in 1982 during the Special Forces era, which were remixed in January 1987 with crowd noise to resemble "live" recordings.

The song was written by Alice Cooper and Kane Roberts.
