If you are a Marilyn Manson fan at all, you should probably rethink your life choices.

What a farking hack.

Speaking as a musician, I farking hate people like this guy.  All show and shock - no talent.  "oooh, look at me, and how scary-weird I am."  Pffft, Fark you.

Yeah, how about most likely farking not.

Maybe don't think of him as a musician, but as an entertainer.  He puts on the spectacle his fans want.  Not my thing, but apparently he has his audience.

Perhaps.  And there are a LOT of acts like this.  They include the likes of Kiss, Rob Zombie, Gwar, and Alice Cooper, just to name a few.

And, no it's not really my cup of tea.  I suppose my real problem is that he is the single worst of the lot of them.  I cannot stand these smug "artist" types that just strive to be as weird as possible and then call that "art".  And then demand respect as a serious musician and artist.  Pffft...  How about NO.

Poor Manson. He became the demographic he used to get upset and make angry. It's hard to not feel bad for the old guy picturing him ranting about entertainers implanting diamonds into their foreheads or hooks into their skulls for chain hair-dos. I can't see any current pictures of him and how old and hasbeen he looks grasping to his 'spooky make-up' image from his glory days without pitying him a little. The dude makes old 80s metal heads look non-pathetic anymore.

Epater les bourgeoise.  Been happening for a long time.

Could have been worse. It could have been a Rockbiatch show.

He was giving her great pictures. She could have walked away at  any moment. She stayed.

Damn, I never knew they existed.  That's some hard partying.

I did like Mechanical Animals, but that was two plus decades ago.

More GG Alin I would imagine.

I, too, think getting spit and bled on by someone with STDs is a reasonable thing to expect from a music show.
 
2021-09-15 12:30:58 PM  
GG Allin used to defecate on stage and throw it as his audience.
What do you expect from Marilyn Manson?  The guy used to beat up his band members on stage.  So did Trent Reznor.

I would agree with this post Antichrist Superstar.

Has anyone mentioned Peter North?

The fact that this devolved into a Peter North thread is my favorite thing about today.

KISS is much worse

Eh just glamor rock.  He was all the rage back in the "Satanic Panic" of the late 90s.  Now, meh.

He looks like a late-in-life Liz Taylor.

There's music at a Marilyn Manson show?
 
2021-09-15 6:24:48 PM  
He was cool and edgy to a certain kind of crowd when I was in middle school, well over 20 years ago.

That vibe doesn't roll so well forever. Like most shock acts, it has a shelf life.

I liked some of his songs. Too bad he's an abusive douche. I feel like maybe I should stop learning too much about musicians I like. Right now I'm wondering if I can separate The Eagles of Death Metal from the fact that Jessie Hughes is a conservative

Wikipedia barely skims the surface.  They had a female member who didn't actually play in the band but was only there to get fisted on stage.  One of their gimmicks was to piss on each other and audience members.

Regarding your last point:

They are still awesome and I am so glad I saw their NYE concert back in 2018/2019.

KISS is much worse


I am no fan of KISS.  They suck.  But I do not think they are the worst.  And here's why...  When I was a younger musician, there were a shiatload of cover bands all around town.  And some of them covered KISS songs.  When those songs are performed by musicians that can actually play, there are some pretty good songs.

Which says to me that at least they can write good songs.  To this day, I hear a song like Detroit Rock City on the radio, and immediately think, "Man, Joe and Dave's band did that song WAY better!"  You don't know Joe and Dave.  But that doesn't matter.

Furthermore...  There are plenty of bands that do the make-up/gimmick thing.    Bands like Ghost or Slipknot.  The difference with those bands is that they are REALLY good.  Good music, good performance.  It's not just shock for the sake of art.  My point being, I don't rail against the "art" bands for the sake of that.  I rail against the ones that rely on that gimmick because they've got nothing else.
