Marilyn Manson

Love him or hate him, the self-proclaimed "Antichrist Superstar" -- Marilyn Manson -- was indisputably among the most notorious and controversial entertainers of the 1990s. Celebrated by supporters as a crusader for free speech and denounced by detractors as little more than a poor man's Alice Cooper, Manson was the latest in a long line of shock rockers, rising to the top of the charts on a platform of sex, drugs, and Satanism. Though widely dismissed by critics, his brand of metal nevertheless struck a major chord with the youth market, and he became a mainstream anti-hero on the strength of a masterfully orchestrated marketing campaign, much to the chagrin of conservative politicians and concerned parents. Such attention pushed many of his songs -- including "The Dope Show," "The Beautiful People," and a cover of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" -- into the upper reaches of the modern rock charts during his heyday.

Born Brian Warner, Manson was raised in Canton, Ohio. At the age of 18, he relocated to Tampa Bay, Florida, where he worked as a music journalist. In 1989, he became friends with guitarist and fellow outsider Scott Mitchell; the two soon decided to form a band, with Mitchell rechristening himself Daisy Berkowitz and Warner adopting the name Marilyn Manson. With the addition of bassist Gidget Gein and keyboardist Madonna Wayne-Gacy, the group -- originally dubbed Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids -- began self-releasing cassettes and playing gigs, their gothic stage show notable for Manson's elaborate makeup and homemade special effects. Jettisoning their drum machine in favor of one Sara Lee Lucas, the band's sound began taking on a harder edge, and by 1992 they were among the most popular acts in the south Florida area. In 1993, Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor came calling, offering both a contract with his Nothing Records label as well as the chance to open for NIN the following spring; Manson accepted both offers, and the group's debut LP, Portrait of an American Family, appeared during the summer of 1994. With new bassist Twiggy Ramirez replacing Gein, the group's notoriety began to soar. Most infamously, during an appearance in Salt Lake City, Manson ripped apart a copy of the Book of Mormon while on-stage. The Church of Satan's founder, Anton LaVey, also bestowed upon him the title of "Reverend."

While some onlookers dismissed Manson's behavior as crass audience manipulation, his cult following -- comprised almost entirely of disaffected white suburban teens -- continued to swell, and the band broke into the mainstream with the release of 1995's Smells Like Children EP, propelled by their hit cover of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)." Berkowitz quit a short time later and was replaced by guitarist Zim Zum, and the revised group saw their next LP, 1996's Antichrist Superstar, debut at the number three spot on the pop album charts. As Manson's popularity grew, so did the furor surrounding him. His concerts were regularly picketed by civic groups, and his music was the subject of widespread attacks from the right-wing and religious fronts. Again, however, his quick embrace of the media spotlight called into question the true sincerity of his revolutionary aims. With a cover story in Rolling Stone and the timely release of a best-selling autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, some onlookers doubted whether Manson had sold his soul to Satan, or just sold his soul, period. The glam-inspired Mechanical Animals followed in 1998, with the resulting tour yielding the live Last Tour on Earth a year later.

Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) came out at the end of 2000, and the band toured to support the album in 2001. During a July show in Michigan, Manson was charged with criminal sexual conduct after performing an alleged offensive act on a security guard. Another charge followed before the year's end, when an additional security guard filed a civil suit alleging that Manson had rubbed his pelvis on the guard's head. Manson's version of "Tainted Love" appeared on the Not Another Teen Movie soundtrack that December, and the July 2001 sexual conduct charges were lowered to a misdemeanor one month later. The civil suit was dropped soon after.

May 2003 saw the release of The Golden Age of Grotesque, which spent a week atop the album charts and ended up on several critics' year-end Top Ten lists. The following year, former member Daisy Berkowitz released Lunch Boxes & Choklit Cows, a compilation of demos and unreleased tracks that was credited to Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids. Berkowitz had obtained the rights to the material in a lawsuit against Manson, who subsequently fought the release and court-ordered some artwork to be removed. At the end of September, Manson released his own compilation, a greatest-hits affair titled Lest We Forget. The collection covered the highlights of Manson's career and included a new cover version of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus," whose success helped push the album to gold status in multiple countries.

Late in 2005, the band announced that a new album was nearly finished; however, it wasn't until 2007 that Eat Me, Drink Me was released. The record was largely written, performed, and produced by Manson and guitarist/bassist Tim Skold, who left Marilyn Manson's lineup shortly thereafter and was replaced by returning member Twiggy Ramirez. Manson and Ramirez then began writing material for the band's seventh studio album, The High End of Low, which arrived in spring 2009.

In 2011, during preparation for the release of the band's eighth studio album, drummer Ginger Fish announced he had left the group. Later that same year, Manson premiered a short film in support of the album titled Born Villain. The film, directed by actor Shia La Beouf, was not a music video for a specific track, but a a stand-alone short. The album Born Villain, featuring the single, "No Reflection" was released in 2012. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

nicko252008
Manson is Chicanes Father and GOD, go away troll.

Crump1441 how is any of that an excuse and who tf cares if you'll be there to "listen watch and learn"
scalwicket
The s**t
MM is creepy but thats what makes him MM follow for a follow
Manson needs to put down the lipstick and cheeseburger s . This guy has gotten really fat. He looks like a fat , cross dressing , tranny. If he balloons up any more he's gonna be 300 large!
I am kinda taking both sides of the quote unquote love him or hate him debate. On the love him side of me , I will say that his music is great , but on the hate him side I will say that ever scince the beautiful people music video I have always considered him a real Creepy Pasta
No matter how old over weight or what ever other lame a** excuse all you dumb a** haters have to say about MM I'll always be right there to listen watch and learn what ever this man has to offer this lame f**king world. Rock on Manson
annadean1998
i love him but my mom and dad hates him
Love him or hate him, Manson is absolutely one of the greatest recording artists of all time. This song is a great example. Another is their cover of Lennon's Working Class Hero, which, just for argument's sake came out before Green Day's rendition. I truly believe that there is at least 1 song by Manson that could win over anyone that claims to dislike him & or his music. That is the sign of one seriously accomplished & talented musician!
i adore this song for ever
Luv this guy!!!!! Follow for follow
Cannot live without marilyn manson music.....wo r d s cannot start to explain his music and what it means 2 me
His music is just amazing so it doesn't matter what anybody else says
Fiona Apple is better.
IPhone iPhone iPhone iPhone iPhone red
Marilyn Manson you are awesome and don't listen to those freaken jerks! U are boss just the way u r
If you don't ,like his amazing music then shut the f up and go listen to something else and instead of not having a life by calling someone a monster or saying how horrible their music is go outside and get a life or acting like children just because u don't like that type of music
He may be weird. But think bout it he's old enough to be your f**king father and he's STILL doing his amazing s**t. And he STILL is doing crazy s**t. And he's still Marilyn Manson and always will be. Get the f**k over it. The MM army can over power all of you f**kers!
OMFG YHIS IS MY YHIRD FAVORUTE SONG THANKS TO MARYLIN!!!!
and there's not a damn thing wrong with marilin either P:
whoever said eminem sucks can go suck a dick
they do have some good songs grew up listen to this sh!t #Zombie #N.I.N
Love mm he is my idol besides andy beirsack and Jake Pitts and jinxx and cc and Ashley purdy
HEY, WHY YOU GUYS HATIN MANSON?? YOU CAN HIT THE NEXT BUTTON.... UNLESS THIS IS YOUR B**CH AND WINE CRACKER
WHITE TRASH GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES!!! WHAT TIME IS IT?
The greedy corrupt politicians, the Hollyweird so called elite, and all the other beautiful people - fodder for M.Manson and marketing for the rest of the consumer rubes. MM is more then meets the eye. Ozzy, Zombie, and Manson the evil trinity - 1980's churches would have been spinning their albums backwards faster than Linda Blair in the Exorcist LOL
Hate this weirdo. He made people do bad things. He's a bad person.
@kitchkrafy1 0 1 1 0 1 ditto that
I hate every Manson is about, ergo who he is, and I can't stand his music and the meanings behind them... But I will admit that NO ONE can pull off "This is Halloween" like he can. His voice is very gravelly and good for metal, but he's a cross dressing monster.
I love Marilyn Manson, love his music, and live his style.
I love Marilyn manson <3. The big bos of the music
Eminem sucks too! He should probably run and hide for helping with the Freak show too! Broke Back Marlett sucks! Eminem.copie s your music! Yup!
