It seems that Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is a massive fan of Alice Cooper!

Mayor Barrett officially declared Friday, October 1 as Alice Cooper Day throughout the US city, ahead of the legendary shock rocker’s tour stop at Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Pavilion on the same night.

“If you are a Milwaukeean, you cannot forget @alicecooper’s Milwaukee history lesson to characters, Wayne and Garth, in the 1992 movie ‘Wayne’s World’, where he coined the phrase ‘Mil-ee-wau-kay,” Barrett wrote in a tweet.

“The Godfather of shock rock and stage theatrics, @alicecooper has entertained countless Milwaukee fans since his first Wisconsin show in 1973. I welcome him back to the ‘good land’ today by proclaiming October 1 as ‘Alice Cooper Day’ throughout the City of Milwaukee.”

During Cooper’s somewhat educational cameo Wayne’s World in 1992, he explains the meaning behind the name Milwaukee, telling a star-struck Wayne and Garth that it was actually pronounced “Mil-ee-wau-kay,” which is Algonquin for “the good land”.

Remember the classic scene below!
