Marilyn Manson's band was originally called Marilyn Manson And The Spooky Kids, but shortly after the band was formed, the name was shortened to Marilyn Manson (the lead singer's name, obviously).
Marilyn Manson himself has never bitten the head of a defenceless animal nor had fake breast implants nor removed his ribs in order to give himself oral sex. On the contrary to what pathetic sociopath idiots think, Marilyn Manson does not have man boobs- he was cursed from the day he was born to be tall and terribly thin (something which he doesn't mind.)
He isn't gay (he is married to star female stripper, Dita Von Teese) and yet has no problem what-so-ever about gay people, gay sex or touching men-- wanna know why? It's because he isn't an idiot. He can accept other people.
His music does not just have shock value. I myself downloaded some of his music to find out who the hell Marilyn Manson was, before I had seen him and his band and back when I though he was a woman (/Marilyn/). It amazed me, and because of my love for his work I looked up more about him.
He isn't a Satanist (he doesn't believe in a God) yet is against Christianity. He isn't against Christianity because he is a 'Goth' (he isn't, by the way)but because his gained experiences have left him with some intelligence. If you don't believe me, buy his autobiography.

You took the angel away,
I killed myself to make everybody pay..." -- Coma Black

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.

Random kid: "Yes I do. I judge people by their appearance."

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!
