Special Forces is the 13th studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 1981, and was produced by Richard Podolor.

Flo and Eddie, former members of The Turtles, performers, and radio personalities, performed on this album.
“Look at You Over There, Ripping the Sawdust from My Teddybear”, was listed on the album cover, but was removed by Cooper from the album itself before the release, as he felt it didn’t fit with the overall theme. It was later released in demo form on the 1999 CD box set “The Life and Crimes of Alice Cooper”, and again in demo form on the 2010 CD reissue of Special Forces. There is a completed studio version of the song which remains unreleased.
