First of all, I JUST found out about this particular part of the forums, but ANYHOO! Since I'm such a music freak and the fact that my life revolves around it,I'll be spending alot more time in herebig grin

Back to the topic, Marilyn Manson. A lot of people love him and alot of people I hate, I myself don't like the man hinself, but I like his music. Even though he does ridiculous things to the bible and throws live puppies into the crowd until they die, I think that he is a very smart and well spoken man. What do you guys think?

LindsIsTightK
I liked his song The Dope Show, and there was another one too on his Mechanical Animals cd that I liked, but other then that, I really don't like him much at all. He truly scares me.

BackFire349
Crappy musician. Relies on shock tactics rather then his music to get promoted. That says something about his confidence in his own music.

loserib
you know i have seen him 4 times and not once have i ever seen him throw puppies out to the crowd i think he is an artist and the only thing ive seen him do with a bible is rip pages out of it so what are your fav songs by him

VampirePrincess
I don't like him. He copies artist and all he does is shock people which is lame. At least put some substance in his songs!

BackFire349
oh wow, an anti religious act, how original roll eyes (sarcastic)

Fire
manson is nuts

yerssot
dunno, don't know the dude that well
but I'm not interested in him at all actually messed

Thing_1
I think his music is alright but he trys to hard to shock people.

Thing_1
tries**

BackFire349
Not really, he's normal, he just uses that as a gimmick.

julibug
i'm not a manson fan. not at all. but the first time i heard his cover of "sweet dreams", i thought it was truly creepy. that was kinda cool.

Sparkle
He's a ****-up freak in my opinion. Imagine killing puppies on stage, thats ****in sick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! mad

loserib
he really does not do that

BackFire349
Everything he does is to get the attention off of his mediocre music.

loserib
i take it none of you have ever been to one of his performences he has a great live show and does not really do the stuff you guys say

VampirePrincess
I seen him and he copies other artist. lol... He is not orginal.

LindsIsTightK
I don't think Manson acts that way just to get attention. I think he acts that way simply because he is being different from everyone else. And you know who cares if he does it to sell records? I mean c'mon, be realistic here, every person on these boards would make a sell out record all for the money, and anyone who says that they wouldn't is lying. I think Manson is smart for what he's doing, I mean hell, he's making a hell of a lot more money then anyone of us ever will, so the more power to him.

BackFire349
I wouldn't, I have dignity.

And even if peopl do it, that doesn't make it right. Musicians should be applauded and paid for their music, not their gimmicks.

LindsIsTightK
Well people have a tendency to do the not so right thing in the world today. I think you say you wouldn't, but if it ever came down to it, you would rather be making money then be a nameless nobody.

BackFire349
If I'm going to be a somebody, I'd do it by relying on skills/talent, no whoring myself to the public.

Killer
GREAT GUY
AWSOME MUSIK
intresting acts

BackFire349
SHALLOW GUY

GENERIC MUSIC

ACTS/GIMMICKS STOLEN FROM ALICE COOPER

Sparkle
Plus his music gives me a headache!

There's absaloutly No talent there @ all, all he does is scream down the mic while looking really ****in ugly!

Complete waste of money in my opinion!

Terheji Materpa
Did Marilyn Manson write any of his music. Because everyone tells me that he just takes other peopls music and remakes them.

Filth
I like Marylin Manson his songs are great, very meaningful. I know he creeps alot of people out but I think its great, its original, there will never be anyone who can replace him as he is so different, and that i think is why he is famous.

SlipknoT
Correct, hes famous for his image, not his talent.

Lilli800
I don't like him and he might be famous because of his image not talent but why people would go for his image, the way he looks, acts etc. is beyond me. But each for his own I guess.

As you rightaly stated, to each his own, i have nothing wrong with the way he acts/looks because atleast he has his own thing, not like bands we could mention who just follow the trends *cough*Eminem*cough* to be famous, his image has meaning he is making him self into a freak and the more people hate him the more well known he is, if you truly hated him you would know nothing of him but because some many hate him so much is known about him.

He doesn't actually do that puppy thing does he? I'll believe anything so please do tell, I doubt it, no ones that horrible.

Filth
no the puppy thing is unfortunataly not true.

Morning_Glory

Morning_Glory

Red Superfly
He bites the heads off of ophans and small kittens. And he practises necrophelia. And he likes Simple Plan, so I'm told.

loserib

That puppy thing was a hoax... He's never actually done that. It's against his religion. yes And there's nothing wrong with tearing up a bible. It's a book, sheesh.

I don't care too much for his music, though I like the occasional song of his. I do think, however, that he's said some very interesting (and bizarre) things. He's decent enough, lyrics-wise, but I hate it when people liken him to a rock god.

Red Superfly
I think he's made a few good songs, to be fair. True, they are all covers, and the originals are ten times better than his versions, but hey.

He ain't "great", not by a long shot, but I'll listen to his version of Personal Jesus or Sweet Dreams, but gimme Depeche Mode and Eurythmic anyday over Manson.

In person, I think he's a bit of a pretentious arse. In fact, I'd say he's incredibly pretentious, one of the most pretentious "musicians" of all time, in fact.

SlipknoT
I was inot him when I was 9 confused

alice cooper throw out a chicken though

Deathblow
Nothing beats Ozzy's bat biting.

Alpha Centauri
If I remember rightly, both were accidents.

Is that actually true? I've heard stuff but surely....

loserib
yeah he thought someone through up a rubber bat but it was real had to get rabbis shots and everything

Red Superfly
Yeah it was a total accident. Benefitted his career though.

Blue Dragon
I see...so it was an accident? Sure?

loserib
shit i would do it on purpose if i thought it would benifet my career

Yeah, its been coverred on literally anything to do with Ozzy thats been on TV.

He thought it was a fake bat and bit its head off, only realising afterwards that it was real.

SaTsuJiN
I have his 'smells like children' , 'anti-christ superstar' and 'mechanical animals' albums... I dunno if I like the newer stuff.. although i liked the original soundscapes he made for the first resident evil movie. I dont really care for his attitude persay, but I do like some of his styles and viewpoints.. if he knows whats gonna sell he's gonna do it.

KharmaDog
Manson's act was done in the &0's and 80's by Alice Cooper. Except Alice was original and actually made some decent music. Alice Cooper was also honest in that it was an act in which he could present his music.

Alice Cooper's image was about his music, Marilyn Manson's music is all about his image. Big difference there.

I think it's kinda funny that all his fans bought into his crap only to realize that it was just as empty as all the things Manson rants about.

Konjammenson
his music and his image go hand in hand for sure. his music would never have succeeded if angry teens didn't also have a visual to fall in line with......don't know if that made sense but i do like ketchup sandwiches.

you don`t like him... okay, that`s your opinion but which musician doesnt copy other artists?
and in which way is he "shocking"? thats new to my mind... blink

Alpha Centauri
There are loads of musicians that don't copy.

-AC

Darth Jello
puppy killing? please, don' believe everything you hear. the most shocking thing he's ever done onstage is assaulting a cop with his dick (which I personally find hilarious).

OMG, no way! Ermm....I don't know what I think og him now... confused

~AlluNeedIsLuv~
I really hate MM I think he is horrible and scary and I can't believe he kills puppies *cries* I don't even think his music is good no

Deathblow
He doesn't kill puppies confused

And anyone scared by a skinny pale guy wearing too much make-up needs to toughen up a little. And he's not actually horrible, in fact he's quite an interesting and pleasant guy from what I've seen and heard, apart from when he's in the studio manufacturing his crappy shock-rock.

Blue Dragon
Anyone met him?

PINBALL
I hate him hes just a freak trying to get attention by doing weird things and the way he looks just gives you the creeps

nebri
well i have listend manson for a long time through periods of my own life that has had some relivancy.
his lyrics are profound and sometimes very in the face attitude.
i prefure the song nobodies as it is powerfull and i think because he expresses himself through music and art , it fritend peeps who not willing to exept the out of the ordinary.
overall i think manson has proved that society is still in the dark ages!

TheKangarooster
i think shit loafs of bands did that long time ago and are still doing it but not everyone goes around spreading rumours or tekkin it up the batty and then goin on tv to show it around. thats just sjubid

The way he looks shoudn't be judged & it's not important the way he looks.

Patient_Leech
New Manson album, Born Villain (May 1, 2012).



And an interesting did-bit: Johnny Depp to Appear. I hope he doesn't cause the song to suck.

Patient_Leech
A quick YouTube search discovered a couple new songs...

uldZBoOByzE

That one's not too bad.. hopefully it'll grow on me.

GdkhXQ7URlw

That one's not bad either. I'm liking it okay, I think, from my first impression at least. I'm not exactly blown away, though.

Myth
I'm think Manson is OK. I really like many of his singles, but most of his non-singles are boring as shit and sound a bit like non-singles of Nine Inch Nails (which I don't like). I saw Manson live once and was kind of disappointed. It was fun because of his antics, but his sound quality live was not too great. The venue was one that doesn't always do loud music justice, but other bands that I have seen there made it work well enough (like Serj Tankian and Avenged Sevenfold).

Patient_Leech
I have mixed feelings about Manson, myself. I think his lyrics are either brilliant, kind of clever, or repetitive, immature, and annoying. But overall I find him rather addictive and I find myself listening to him over and over again. I like Twiggy Ramirez's work, but I'd really like to hear some more John-5/Manson material. That dude is a killer guitarist (I really like his solo/instrumental material) and I think they came up with some great songs together. For example...

Oh, snap. New video. Viewer Discretion is advised...

I don't know why I used to crush on Marilyn Manson. Grew out of it. But I do listen to them occasionally. The music isn't too bad.

Patient_Leech
I think I need to start lowering my expectations for the new album.. then i'll probably like it more. I liked the last album, but it was far from perfect.

juggernaut94
Bloody hell, they're releasing a new album?

Patient_Leech
I have mixed feelings about the new album. Some good songs, some that grew on me a little, and quite a few mediocre at best ones. I guess it's pretty much what I expected. Manson really needs to revamp his style. The title track "Born Villain" is really cool, though.

Patient_Leech
New album Heaven Upside Down...

...when the f#ck is the thing coming out??

Patient_Leech
New Manson finally leaked. It comes out October 6th, I think.

What I've been able to listen to so far is pretty gloriously irreverent.. laughing out loud

Song titles like "Say10," "JE$U$ CRI$I$," "Revelation #12."
