Steven Tyler and Alice Cooper attend Steven Tyler's Second Annual Grammy Awards Viewing Party to benefit Janie's Fund presented by Live Nation at Raleigh Studios on Feb. 10, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Steven Tyler celebrates his 72nd birthday Thursday (March 26), and the Aerosmith frontman received a flood of sweet messages -- with one that cut right through.

For the occasion, the Godfather of Shock Rock Alice Cooper recorded himself flinging knives at a printed picture of Tyler's face while his own "Go to Hell" track plays in the background. Throwing knives is the shock rocker's well-known pre-show ritual, and his precision only zeroes in on his affection for Tyler.

"Please help me wish a very happy birthday to the Demon of Screamin' - @IamStevenT!" Cooper captioned the 20-second clip on Twitter.

The 72-year-old birthday boy retweeted his idiosyncratic well wishes, as well as those sent from Slash, Def Leppard, Orianthi, Bon Jovi's lead guitarist Phil X and more fellow rock stars.

Watch how Cooper throws it down to celebrate Tyler's birthday below.
