  • Totally. They haven't even invented an adjective that begins to describe how freakish that dude is!
  • No.. I really like him!! I don't look like the typical Marilyn Manson fan, but I think hes great!
  • I think Marilyn Manson is a consummate showman whose entertainment persona is creepy and designed to be that way.
  • yeah he's creepy, but his music is aiming to be something else,not like ac-dc,the johnas brothers or hannah whats her face, his band is trying to be different.
  • Not really. I think each generation has their goth rockers. For instance in the 70's, some people were creeped out by Alice Cooper (Manson cites Alice as one of his biggest influences) Today, Alice continues to perform (he still is a great live act and puts out solid albums) but is also known as a nice guy, family man, does a lot of charitable works. It was/is all just an act. That is beginning to be seen with Manson as well. Manson is very intelligent, it is just a stage act. In the 80's, you had bands considered shocking like W.A.S.P. or Gwar. From the 90's, you have Rob Zombie, who puts on a very theatrical show and does horror music, yet he is very intelligent as well and now directs movies among other things. You can also throw in bands like Slayer, King Diamond, etc. There is a place for horror themed music, much of which is not to be taken serious. Going back to Alice Cooper since he is considered the originator, he once made a comment that made since to me. He said when people were/are offended by his show "Are you offended by the violence in Shakespeare? There was a lot more blood in a Shakespeare play than during an Alice show, yet that is considered classic literature. It is a just a character I play, not who I am in real life. What is the difference?" Marilyn Manson is harmless.
  • Yes, but with such a pretty name.
  • I suppose. To some extent. Aren't we all? I actually used to be really scared of him, simply because of what people put him out to be. I was scared of his stereotype. Like most who say Manson is creepy are. But as I got more into music like his, I realized how pitifully IGNORANT that was. He happens to be a VERY intelligent man, and his music is pretty good too. He has a lot of good points, and for people to say he is "creepy" or "weird" just because he looks a bit different or has darker lyrics is just plain stupid. Do some research on the poor guy before you say something like that.
  • yes i do but it's his gimmick he could be said to be the Alice cooper of today lol
  • No, I don't think that Marilyn Manson is creepy. It is hard to be successful in the music business, so I can appreciate anyone who finds a gimmick and makes it work for them.
  • and lame at the same time.
  • Honestly I never gave him/it much thought, it's the people that followed him I thought to be creepy.
  • Nah he's sexy!
  • I used to but my husband got me listening to some of his stuff...he's probably just misunderstood. :)
  • No. He tries too hard to be. The really creepy people are the ones who are creepy without even trying.
  • Yes, I think he is very creepy. Haha :)
  • ..no..rapists and child molesters are creepy..he is an entertainer...some would say..
  • No not at all, I think Britany Spears is creepy.
  • Nah, a lot of it is just acting and shock value. I have to say though, the Antichrist Superstar days seemed a lot more genuine than what he comes up with today. He's still flashy and artsy though, which I always appreciate.
  • He'd better be, he's spent a lot of money on it.
  • I like some of his music, and his cover of the Ramones song. Rasputina did a cover of Tourniquet that is great. But some of his album covers make me want to puke! Man, he's hideous!
  • ok whoever said Marilyn Manson was lame needs 2 get punched cause i will not sit around while my fav. band gets disrespected. That is so freakin LAME 2 call someone thats better then you a stupid ass name. No Marilyn Manson is a great singer and a brilliant showman.
  • Marilyn Manson is only a character, and a profitable one at that. I think the man behind the mask is intelligent and highly creative. I don't find him creepy at all.
  • I like his music more than the way he looks... In a way he looks like a zombie but then again,looks can't kill and I will listen to his music!!
  • He is kinda creepy. That is what makes him special. He is creepier without the costume. He is a showman. He has figuired out his gimmick to make for a nice retirement. That takes talent these days. I like him.
  • No. He's a commodity. A product designed to sell to kids to piss their parents off. I doubt he is even the slightest bit crepy behind closed doors.
  • At first I did, and I hadn't cared for him much. Then I saw bowling for Columbine and heard his opinion. THEN, I saw this video and concluded HE ROCKS! I don't think he's a satanist. I think he just uses that whole thing as his schtick.
  • no he is human just like us sry under all that make up and strained voice he is a cool guy kiss ass music
  • no he is human just like us sry under all that make up and strained voice he is a cool guy kiss ass music
  • Maybe a little, but most geniuses are.
  • I don't think he is creepy at all, I think that he was unique at some point in his career. Now many other look a lot like he did. I enjoy some of his music..."The Beautiful People"
  • Marilyn Manson is only truly creepy to those who don't understand what he's trying to do in the first place. He's one of the most intelligent, free, introspective artists today, and what he's doing is more important than anything to make their debut after the year 2000.
