Alice Cooper just got inducted into the White Castle hall of fame

Well, now we finally know that when Alice Cooper sang "Feed My Frankenstein", he was probably just soliciting chicken rings and sliders: The classic rocker and eyeliner aficionado has been inducted into the White Castle Cravers Hall of Fame, which is apparently a thing.

Cooper grew up in Detroit, so he's been a fan of those sliders since day one. As he told the crowd at White Castle's Columbus, OH headquarters on Monday, his Dad used to bring home bags of burgers for dinner all the time (suck it, tuna noodle casserole), and he still makes his tour bus stop at the drive-thru whenever he spots a Castle. He's also campaigning hard for White Castle aftershave, which is probably what clinched his nomination in the first place.

The man joins such all-stars as the creators of Harold and Kumar and Nips the Pig (not a weird euphemism) in this esteemed hall. Basically, it's just one more reason you're not worthy of Coop.
