A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • Apr 13, 2012
I can't stand Marilyn Manson's horrible music. All you need to know is that his music, like all "dark" mainstream musicians, is merely ripped off from much more talented (though much less-accessible) musicans and sifted through a pop filter as to not alienate the MTV crowd. He's "shocking" if you don't listen to metal or industrial music, but if you do, he's all bark and no bite.

Can I have some Swans and Front Line Assembly?

He from whom Manson pilfered most egregiously is neither in any way obscure nor unapproachable, as he's done very nearly nothing that Alice Cooper didn't decades before, with far more proficient showmanship, wit and humor.

I used to kinda respect his style, but I dunno, I have lost touch with his stuff lately.

You're not disservicing yourself if you've lost touch with MM's music.  Thanks for popping by!!

About this musician


Formed: 1989 in Canton, OH
Years Active: 90 's, 00's
Genre: ROCK

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, OH. At the age of 18, he relocated to Tampa Bay, FL, 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,...
