Outrageous rock veteran Alice Cooper has urged Lady Gaga to ramp up her shock tactics, insisting modern musicians are "boring".

The School's Out singer has made no secret of his dislike for the current crop of bands, blasting them for wearing designer clothes onstage, avoiding controversy, and singing about safe subject matter.

He admits Lady Gaga is the only pop star currently pushing any boundaries - and now he's called on her to step up her shocking behaviour, insisting she's not outrageous enough.

Cooper tells The Independent Magazine, "Rock 'n' roll has to be upsetting. It has to p**s someone off a little bit. It has to have some sort of edge to it... I do wonder why so many young artists don't want to be in proper rock bands any more.

"It's weird to me: Today's lot just want to fit in. Where I come from, the idea of rock is not to fit in... When Lady Gaga did that meat dress, I told her: You didn't go far enough. In my day, we would have put her on a spit and pretended to have a barbecue.

"But at least Gaga tries to shake things up. Today, and this is my pet peeve, most of the bands - 80 per cent of the bands out there - are so PC (politically correct). So boring."
