Barb Church's complaint about the noise from outdoor concerts near her Mankato home has prompted a response from none other than Alice Cooper himself.

The rocker is due to perform at the city's Vetter Stone Ampitheater this June, and it was brought to his attention that Church had some concerns about the 100db–plus noise levels at her home and the "foul language" in his lyrics.

"I don't think we have to listen to things about suicide," she said at a council meeting last week (though she might want to read this, which provides some context behind the song "Hey Stoopid").

The "School's Out" singer responded on Facebook Thursday, calling into question her claims about the decibel levels she experienced at a recent show at the ampitheater by Nelly.

"That doesn't sound like an accurate number unless the audience at Nelly's show had their spleens ruptured by the loudest show on record (encore!)," he wrote, saying such noise levels at her home across the river would defy the laws of physics.

"110db at her house sounds like a stretch unless she happened to meter the concert sound while 1,000 cats were meowing in her home at exactly the same time," he added.

He also made an offer of a gift to the North Mankato resident that will be delivered in a rather unusual way.

"I'm a "Nice Guy" after all. I guess I COULD have my snake swim over some earplugs... It's the least I could do."
