Trash is the eighteenth studio album released by Alice Cooper in 1989.

The album featured “”Poison””, Cooper first top ten hit since his single “”You And Me”” in 1977. After Alice return to the music industry in 1986 with the successful tour “”The Nightmare Returns””, Cooper had sought assistance from Desmond Child to create a comeback album. Trash became one of Cooper biggest albums, accompanied by music videos for “”Poison””, “”Bed of Nails””, “”House of Fire””, and “”Only My Heart Talkin'””. A successful year-long worldwide concert tour in support of the album was documented in the home video release Alice Cooper Trashes The World. Additionally, much of the album conveys a sexual theme.

The album features many guest performances including Jon Bon Jovi, Stiv Bators, Steven Tyler, as well as singer/guitarist Kane Roberts, who left Cooper band in 1988. Songwriting contributions were also made by Joan Jett, Diane Warren, Jon Bon Jovi, and Richie Sambora.

Backing vocalist Louis “”Louie”” Merlino and drummer Bobby Chouinard later played together in Beggars & Thieves. Chouinard died in 1997.

‘Poison’ is one of Alice Cooper most well-known songs, and provided his last major mainstream hit, in 1989. It was taken from his album ‘Trash’, which was produced by Desmond Child. The whole album sounded more commercial and radio-friendly than previous Cooper albums, which may account for its success. The single reached number 2 in the UK, number 7 in the USA and number 10 in the Dutch Top 40. The music video for ‘Poison’ was available in two versions. Model Rana Kennedy wore nothing but a black thong in the original video, so a more modest version was filmed in which Kennedy wears a corset to cover her upper body.
