Born January 5, 1969
A famous eclectic
artist, head of band by with name that was formed in 1989. He is currently dating Evan Rachel Wood who was born September 7, 1987
His autobiography is called "Long Hard Road Out of Hell" I suggest everyone who loves or hates him should read it.
'I'm becoming what I used to be afraid of. When the whole world wants to destroy you, everyday is your last day and every performance is your final one. The Antichrist is not just me, or just one person. it's all of us, a collective state of mind that America needs to have awakened in them. I want to wake it in them. That's the purpose of this tour, maybe even my life, to make Americans realize they don't have to believe in something just because they've been told it all their lives. You can't have someone who's never had sex or drugs telling you it's wrong. Only through experience can you determine your own morality. Humanity isn't about constantly having to seek forgivness for being human; humanity is leading a guiltless existance as an individual. That is Armageddon, because, to Christianity, if you forsake God and believe in yourself, the world is over.'
-pg. 247 of The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell by Marilyn Manson
2. A man who pours his heart into his music, and happens to have opinions other than the mainstream, so he is victimized
3. The most misunderstood person on the face of the earth.
4. The most convenient person for conservatives to blame when something goes wrong
2. Marilyn Manson is smarter than you.
3. People don't like Marilyn Manson because they don't take the time to consider that he, too, is human and has feelings. All they see is his dissent from the socially accepted, which many view as wrong.
4. Right-wing Politician: Marilyn Manson caused Columbine, 9/11, the Holocaust, the Cold War, Laci Peterson's death, and the Trojan War.
Someone Intelligent: No, he didn't.
Right-wing Politician: You are the Antichrist.
Me: "Screw you kid. You obviously don't know what you're talking about."
Random kid: "Yes I do. I judge people by their appearance."
Me: "Thats why I hate you."
2. Whom every pre-teen poseur goth says they like these days to get street cred, unfortunately giving Manson a bad name in some peoples eyes.

Idiot- But he's a devil worshipper!
Me- No, he is not.
Idiot- I HATE YOU!!!
Me- You fail at life.
Hello! This is it!
Call me crazy, but I don't think about it any further. I don't care if he's 'main-stream' or not, or if he believes in religion or not, or if he likes Avril Lavigne's music. Is it just me who realises you don't have to like an artist/musician/whatever to like what they do?? I'm sure I wouldn't like Marilyn Manson if I met him, and I'm sure there are plenty of things we'd disagree on, but that doesn't efin' matter. I like his music, without making it a religion. So lighten up!
