Antichrist Superstar is an epic rock opera / concept album about a nobody called "The Worm" who transforms himself from a self-abusive demagogue into an apocalyptic Nietzschean ubermensch. How fucking epic is that?

Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, eat your heart out.
Antichrist Superstar is one of the greatest albums of the 90's. Ambitious as fuck.

Holy Wood was a concept album released by Marilyn Manson on 2000 after the Columbine High School massacre and serves as their rebuttal at the accusations leveled at them. Their frontman has described it as "a declaration of war".

The record made numerous allegories to pop culture history to show how everyone had a participating role in Columbine: From Abraham Zapruder to the JFK Assassination, from the Beatles' White Album to the Charles Manson murders and from the Crucifixion to the Dead Rock Star celebrity worship phenomenon, Manson left no stone unturned to give america a righteous ass-kicking.

Notable themes:
1.Guns, God and Government - rightwing America's main obsession that, arguably, fucked Klebold and Harris up more than any 'rock' or 'metal' album.

2.Celebritarianism - a word coined by Manson to describe a devotion to celebrity and celebrity culture. In the album it is a religion that canonizes dead celebrities into saints in the same way the crucifixion canonized Jesus Christ into a superstar messiah and celebrity. In effect, the crucifixion is the root cause of shit like reality TV, Jersey Shore, TMZ and Harris and Klebold's desire to become famous by murdering people.

Holy Wood was never a commercial success and received mixed reviews from music journalists who said the band's artistic pretensions overshadowed the powerful lyrical indictment contained in it. Despite this, many people view it as the band's finest hour.
Kerrang Magazine: ...There has still not been as eloquent and savage a musical attack on the media and mainstream culture as Manson achieved with Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death).

Me:If you thought what Manson said about Columbine in Michael Moore's documentary was incisive, you should see how Holy Wood throws his detractors hypocrisies right back into their faces.

Is a damn good 70's glam rock-inspired album from the 90's. If David Bowie was doing a glam rock homage in the 90's, this would be the album he'd have written.

He'd also have tits if he was redoing the Aladdin Sane album cover.
Greg Burk of LA Weekly once wrote that Mechanical Animals is one of the greatest albums of the 90's. Small wonder Lady Gaga is copying this era of Marilyn Manson.
