Shock rocker Marilyn Manson began his controversial musical journey back in 1989 in Florida. Coining his name as a mixture of sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and notorious serial killer Charles Manson, the musician unveiled his debut album “Portrait of an American Family” four years later, in July 1994.
However, it wasn’t until the band’s second studio release, 1996’s “Antichrist Superstar,” that Manson got into full swing. The album’s lead single, “The Beautiful People,” became an instant staple tune of ’90s metal. Marilyn’s image of a gloomy, gory, out-of-this-world rock villain was also established, ultimately reaching peak as the decade’s end drew closer. After selling a whopping load of seven million copies around the globe, the record cemented itself as the band’s top-selling release ever.
In 1998, the sinister voyage continued with another instant classic, the “Mechanical Animals.” Probably the group’s most memorable piece of artwork, the album’s front cover featured Manson as a naked, androgynous, alien-like figure with breasts and six fingers. To this day, the record’s cover is what many people imagine Marilyn to be. In total, “Mechanical Animals” shipped over 1.4 million copies around the globe thanks to such numbers as “The Dope Show” and “Rock Is Dead.”
By the turn of the millennia, Manson was arguably the most controversial artist on the planet. Heavily condemned by the church, parents associations and different groups around the world, he became an icon for American teenage outcasts, a gloomy symbol commonly praised as “the only true artist today.”
The peak of controversy occurred in 1999 with the Columbine High School massacre. The tragic incident saw two high school students murdering 12 other students and one teacher before taking away their own lives. They were both fans of “dark music,” which resulted in a massive public outburst towards Manson. With such sensationalist titles as “Killers Worshipped Rock Freak Manson” and “Devil-Worshipping Maniac Told Kids To Kill,” the media indeed got a portion of the public to believe that it was Marilyn who drove the two boys to commit a heinous act, driving the infamy level to an all-time high.
However, the beginning of 2000s also marked the beginning of decline when it comes to controversy, which also meant another decline, as the band’s popularity and financial success also started to wane.
Musically speaking, the group was still in the so-called classic era. 2000’s “Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death)” marked the end of a three-part rock opera started with the “Antichrist Superstar” and received mostly positive reviews, spawning such notable tunes as “The Nobodies” and “Disposable Teens.”
2003’s “The Golden Age of Grotesque” received positive reviews, but ultimately became Marilyn’s last release to reach No. 1 on the charts, as well as sell over 500,000 copies.
Four more albums followed, establishing Manson as one of the ultimate shock icons of the 20th century. As the man himself noted, “those who move beyond the most blatant aspect of what I do will understand what I am trying to say.”
