Rock star Alice Cooper has been presented with the key to a US town that shares his name.
Alice Cooper's hits include School's Out and No More Mr Nice Guy
About 1,000 people descended on the town of Alice, North Dakota - which has a population of just 60 - for the arrival of the 58-year-old performer.
Mayor Dan Lund said Alice had not seen such excitement since its centennial celebration in 2000.
Cooper made the visit a day before he is due to perform at Fargo Civic Center, about 50 miles away.
The star, whose hits include School's Out and No More Mr Nice Guy, was presented with a marble plaque and a gold-plated key in Sunday's ceremony.
Mr Lund said: "There's not a whole lot of buildings to unlock with that key, but Alice is a cool guy and Alice is a cool city - so it's a fun thing to do."
But he added that he preferred country music, saying: "He rocked a little too hard for me. I wasn't quite angry enough to be into his music."
The town is one of several in south-east North Dakota named after the daughters of a railway surveyor.
