Alice Cooper - Wicked Young Man Lyrics




Cold blue swastika tattooed on my skin
The ice in my veins the staples in my chin
I've got it carved in my forehead "Slave To My Sin"
Too violent for the brotherhood to ever take me in

Gonna write down my law in blood upon the street
To the cadence of a goose-step heavy metal beat
Wanna purify my race gonna turn up the heat
Just wanna make 'em die and make the job complete

I am a vicious young man oh I am a wicked young man
It's not the games that I play the movies I see the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man

I like to run my body on heavy heavy fuel
I can punch through a wall I can kick like a mule
I got a pocketful of bullets and a blueprint of the school
I'm the devil's little soldier I'm the devil's little tool

I am a vicious young man oh I am a wicked young man
It's not the games that I play the movies I see the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man

I got every kind of chemical pumpin' through my head
I read Mein Kampf daily just to keep my hatred fed
I never ever sleep I just lay in my bed
Dreamin' of the day when everyone is dead

I am a vicious young man oh I am a wicked young man
It's not the games that I play the movies I see the music I dig
I'm just a wicked young man
I am a vicious young man oh I am a vicious young man
I am a vicious young man oh I am a wicked young man

Alice Cooper Wicked Young Man Comments
  1. Dee Cipher

    It's a really good thing this song isn't more popular. People would lose their collective shit.
    That being said, it's still one of my favorites. :p

  2. Uffe Sjøgren

    He a fine young man our Vincent

  3. neamraven

    Meh, this is a very shallow song. Very surface level reading of things. And 100% toeing the party line.

  4. Virus Of Death

    This is so me cause my mom abused me

  5. Megan Roe

    I love Alice cooper songs

  6. Derek Freeman

    I was 14 when this album came out and Wicked Young Man is still my favorite. I never once thought about shooting up a school or anything like that. Guess I grew up in the right time, cause these kids are freaking psychotic.

  7. Lawrence Aransas Pass TX

    I first started checking out the music of the ALICE COOPER BAND in 1971. I was in Jr High when "Love It To Death" was released in '71. With the song, "Ballad of Dwight Frye" the band created a stage character who was an insane, psychotic killer, which was carried over to their greatest masterpiece, 'KILLER'. After the original group disbanded, Alice Cooper(Vincent Furnier) carried on with the stage acts and the characterization of the maniac killer. It is sad that by the time 'Brutal' Planet' was released in the early 2000's, Alice Cooper didn't have to 'create' a character for a central figure in the song "WickedYoung Man". They're not just YOUNG MEN, and they're REAL, going to schools with you, working with you, living next door to you, going to the Walmart you go to, standing next to you at the mall, and the anger, hatred, mental illness is building up for the final version of his(or hers) revenge for what YOU did to ruin his life.

  8. Luis Reyes

    Before ‘Pumped Up Kids’, there was this...

  9. Zation

    Cold blue swastika tattooed on my skin
    The ice in my veins, the staples in my chin
    I've got it carved in my forehead "Slave To My Sin"
    Too violent for the brotherhood to ever take me in

    Gonna write down my law in blood upon the street
    To the cadence of a goose-step heavy metal beat
    Want to purify my race gonna turn up the heat
    Just want to make 'em die and make the job complete

    I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man
    It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
    I'm just a wicked young man

    I like to run my body on heavy, heavy fuel
    I can punch through a wall, I can kick like a mule
    I got a pocketful of bullets and a blueprint of the school
    I'm the devil's little soldier, I'm the devil's little tool

    I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man
    It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
    I'm just a wicked young man

    I got every kind of chemical pumpin' through my head
    I read Mein Kampf daily just to keep my hatred fed
    I never ever sleep I just lay in my bed
    Dreamin' of the day when everyone is dead

    I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man
    It's not the games that I play, the movies I see, the music I dig
    I'm just a wicked young man

    I am a vicious young man, oh I am a vicious young man
    I am a vicious young man, oh I am a wicked young man

  10. Samuel Wetz

    The music sounds like it could have been by a band like powerman 5000 or static x as a fan of both this song is way better then them 🤘🏻🤘🏻

  11. John Doe

    Heres one for the politically correct.

    Louise Hayle

    You haven't listened AND understood the lyrics then.

    Stuart Jenkins

    Sure John. Don't get too riled up now.

  12. James Neuhart

    Too violent for the brother hood they'll never take me in. I'm just a wicked young man. Ya have to respect a guy who makes no excuses for his lifestyle. Wow only Alice Cooper could pull off these lyrics.

  13. bthere100

    Such a great song on such a powerful album. If you don't own (and I am not talking about this ripping off the artist streaming stuff) the Brutal Planet and Dragontown albums, you don't like great hard rock and metal period.

  14. Hailee kinzzz

    Idc what people say I love Eric , Dylan , and nicholas

    L3gEnDS

    Lol that weird

  15. Shawn Fairholm

    Kick ass song!!!

  16. Dungeon of despair

    I just wanna clear something up this isn't glorifying shooting it's saying the asshole who murders is simply evil no other cause they are evil born not breed it's demonizing the shooter not glorifying him

    Your Mum

    macabre indie boys
    No shit Sherlock

    No Name

    Its actually about Eric Harris but ok

    Aphelion Eye

    I don’t think it’s demonizing shooters or glorifying, it’s just pointing out that the media they consume isn’t the root cause of their violence.
    As for them being born that way, depends. Some people are born psychopaths, some people are turned into sociopaths by virtue of trauma and suffering

  17. Ron Acord

    Best song Alice ever made.

  18. ThisThingEaten

    With all of the school shootings happening in the US right now, this song is now more relevant than ever.

    JimSVoit

    Sad but true.

    Goblin Rabblemaster

    Of Shooters and Faberge Eggs - The Rageaholic

  19. водка

    Mein Kampf is a shit book btw, don’t waste your money.

  20. Clorox Bleach

    Not really a fan of the song

    Mystical Frog

    How dare you have an opinion?

    fname lname

    Asshole

    Shawn Fairholm

    It ok to be wrong!!!

  21. David Santa Maria

    I fucking love Alice, this song gets me soo pumped!

    ExtrackterYT

    As much as I agree with your comment... but there's certainly something disturbing about it at the same time :)

  22. Nick Moser

    This is Sam Hyde's theme song.

    BigBossStudios

    He can't keep getting away with it

    Bardic99 •

    never forget 4/20/99, the day sam hyde awoke

    Sarah Van Ginkle

    @BigBossStudios lmao

  23. SpookyRoseV

    This song is depressingly even more relevant than it was when it came out considering how much more active Neo-Nazis have become in recent years especially during the 2016 election.

    Yet again if this really was made today, this wicked young man would instead by complaining about a video game about killing Nazis is anti-free speech while eating nothing but Papa Johns and sharing Pepe the Frog memes

    SERGIO LUCAS

    ''WRONG''

  24. TheMovieDoctorful

    This is Kylo Ren's theme song.

  25. Death is Not a Penalty

    This song is about Eric Harris from the Columbine school shooting

    Nathan Liberty

    Death is Not a Penalty and Charlie Manson.

    Skullbelly Orr

    Not really, Eric Harris never had any tattoos or any piercings.

  26. Alan Lloyd

    this is better than the previous hair metal albums he did. yes, The Last Temptation im calling hair metal too.

    JD McD

    It is a great album, one of his best though The Last Temptation is a masterpiece.

    Curtis Smith

    The Last Temptation was hardly a hair metal album like the previous four albums before it.I think it gave a pretty good indication of the direction he was trending when Brutal Planet finally came out.

    Roger Stedina

    About once every 5 years, Alice puts out an album that comes back with blood on it's fist. Brutal Planet is one example.

  27. Crimson Dervish

    Another ear worm for the commute. Thank God for Alice Cooper.

  28. TherealTenman

    An ad for The Thinning played before this.... HAH!

  29. Dead Woman's Grave

    Where has this song been all my life <3
