Marlyn Manson

When someone mentions the name Brian Warner you will probably not

realize who they are talking about, but if they say the name Marilyn

Manson one word may come into your mind, the devil incarnate. Brian

Warner or a.k.a. Marilyn Manson is one of the most influential people in

American music. Most people view him as a satanic follower or maybe

even a satanic leader. Others may view him as a sick perverted freak

only guided by his addiction to numerous drugs. But if you ask the

people who really know they will tell you that he is a genius who's

music is made to encourage people to question the existence of God and

believe in themselves. With lyrics like "When you get to Heaven you

will wish you're in Hell." from the song Wormboy off his latest CD

Antichrist superstar it is not hard for people to try to reject him.

Manson grew up in a stable house hold and even went to a strict catholic

school. In an interview with Neil Strauss in Rolling Stone

magazine Manson said "I was never afraid what was under the bed. I

wanted it and I never got it. I just became it." He always questioned

everything as a child and his parents really don't even mind it. His

mom for one isn't really to pleased by the way he acts in public but his

dad, on the other hand, is thrilled by the way he gets his listeners to

think for themselves. He is maybe the only gray-haired man with a black

Marilyn Manson T-shirt on.

Many listeners are young "Goth's" all decked out in black clothing and

pale-skin who, like Manson, only believe in themselves. The band itself

consists of five members: Marilyn Manson, Twiggy Ramirez, Ginger Fish,

Madonna Wayne Gacy, and Zim Zum. The band members developed their name

by taking the first name of a super-model and the last name of a serial

killer. When the band first started they were called Marilyn Manson &

The Spooky Kids, until they were discovered by Trent Reznor the

industrial music creator of the hit band Nine Inch Nails.
