School's Out is the fifth studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 1972. The album's title track has remained a staple song in Alice Cooper's live setlist and receives regular airplay on many "Classic Rock" radio stations.
School's Out reached #2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and #1 on the Canadian RPM 100 Top Albums chart, holding the top position for four weeks. The single "School's Out" reached #7 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the Canadian RPM Top Singles Chart and went all the way to #1 in the UK Singles Chart. School's Out is loosely a concept album based around school and coming of age.
The original album cover (designed by Craig Braun) had the sleeve opening in the manner of a wooden student desk. The vinyl record inside was wrapped in a pair of panties, though this was later discontinued as the paper panties were found to be flammable. The actual desk is on display in the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas.
