The Beautiful People (1996)
Perhaps no single better defines Manson than this track off of 1996’s Antichrist Superstar. The track opens with DAD I HAVE TO FINISH THIS NOW. My editor wants it by midnight.
Personal Jesus (2005)
Manson is a master of covers. His take on this Depeche Mode classic is sure to I DON’T CARE IF DINNER IS GETTING COLD. JUST WAIT.
The New *hit (2003)
This song’s aggressive title and orchestrTHIS IS MY JOB. I DON’T INTERRUPT YOU WHEN YOU’RE WORKING AT YOUR LAW FIRM, YOU JACKASS.
I Don’t Like The Drugs (1998)
No, YOU need to calm down. This IS important. This is MANSON.
Disposable Teens (2000)
WELL MAYBE I WOULD HAVE MY OWN HOME IF MY PARENTS HAD BELIEVED IN MY ARTICLES DAD. THAT’S JUST COMMON SENSE. FUCK YOU, THIS IS REAL JOURNALISM. AT LEAST AS REAL AS THE BILL O’REILLY TRASH YOU WATCH EVERY NIGHT. CLOSE THE FUCKING DOOR.
