Marilyn Manson

Vampy counterculture icon Marilyn Manson (born Brian Warner) rode to fame on a well orchestrated media blitz centered around his lurid live performances and gleefully remorseless badgering of the Religious Right. Manson's satanic attitudinizing and ghoulish Alice Cooper-meets-Anton LaVey persona has earned him a large cult following among disaffected teenagers looking to scare the bejesus out of their parental units. Taking the road-tested Nine Inch Nails formula of driving Industrial beats and vivisectional lyrics one step further by camping it up visually, Manson, who first hit payola with 1996's Antichrist Superstar, continues to permeate his rock with plenty of shock.
