Welcome to Our Nightmare: A Tribute To Alice Cooper is a 1993 various artists compilation album dedicated to the original shock rocker.

The out-of-print double album Welcome To Our Nightmare collects many Alice Cooper covers by various active bands of the time, including the one-time-for-this-release-only supergroup Cold Ethyl (featuring Stephen Perkins of Jane's Addiction), Dramarama, and the always entertaining Flaming Lips. "Clones" is the same song covered by Smashing Pumpkins on their 1996 box set The Aeroplane Flies High.

Brian Bell's Carnival Art turns in a reading of "Cold Ethyl", written by Alice Cooper and Robert 'Bob' Ezrin. Co-produced and engineered by Tracy Chisolm at Sound Castle Studios, the recording is likely a holdover from the Chisolm-helmed Thrumdrone sessions.
