rob zombie = crap.... no kidding. its painful to listen to.

marilyn manson is great though.
the music is so symbolic. its all about the attitude. its just crap. but not in a bad way. its like everything is wrong with the music, and it puts it into whatever he's talking about. its like the music is just the stupidity of life.
i love it!

but rob zombie tries to get across the same idea with try-hard music... it just doesnt work.

marilyn manson isnt metal at all. 'mOBSCENE' is about as close as he gets to metal.
i'd class him as either shock-rock, or just plain rock.

He has little musical talent (and that's being generous) but hires band members that are half decent. He's at least thorough with the image thing, but the only people that are impressed are 12. It's gateway music that leads kids to discover good music which is a good thing.

I think the only ones who can pull off horror rock/punk/whatever you want to call it are The Misfits.

So by your logic, Opeth is effed up? BE GONE SINNER.

He can have as many guitarists as he wants- he's a solo act, not a band.

Mechanical Animals was a good album. Don't like any of his other stuff.

His music is very dull, so he has to make up for it by creating a much mroe itneresting image.
#24
Marilyn Manson is acctually incredibly intelligent.
I don't listen to his music,or care for his look, but I really respect his thought and views on certain subjects.
It would surprise you how well-read he is.

TBH, I haven't really liked any of his stuff since(I think) Mechanical Animals.
But lots of people go through guitarists like that - Rob Zombie has been through quite a few(drummers and bassists too, I think), Megadeth seem to have a new guitarist every album these days... the list goes on.

i've never liked marilyn manson... i mean, its a shame he gets blamed for causing ****ed up people to do ****ed up stuff - if they weren't already a danger to society, they wouldn't have let the music influence them to do something sick. if anything, he should be blamed for making horrible music.

just my opinion, don't kill me.

I disagree with Marilyn Manson; both the image and the music (however this does not mean I depreciate the quality of it)

The reason being it promotes immoral behaviour, of which I can elaborate but not until someone gives me substantial opposition.

yeah yeah, just like grunge promotes drug use and metal promotes underage sex.

music cant tell you what to do, so dont pretend like it can.

manson's music is all about empowerment. he says it in his biography - its got to do with putting things in perspective and making people feel better about life. its saying that life might suck sometimes, but so does the world.

Personally, I understand Marilyn Manson's music, and I deeply respect him as an artist (and as a speaker; the man has a gift for oratory). Though, I must admit, I don't particularly like it. I don't like loud or fast music very much. It's just not my preference. Though, I do have his "best of" in my collection.
Sincerely, Chad.

Empowerment? Perhaps that's his intentions, but not necessarily what the end product results as.

Music creates emotions e.g. if you listen to a fast drum and bass track you'll be full of adrenaline, or if you listen to a slow violin composition you'll feel moved and insightful. This same concept lies in Manson's music.
Of course, it would be foolish to say that everyone who comes into concept with his music is instantly transformed into an aggressive human being, but this does occur with some. It can provoke feelings of immoral behaviour among innocents, as can his videos promote debauchery etc. As you said, the music might suggest moral things, but how many people will interpret it like this? Among a background of fast, violent music, do the lyrics really reach out to people in your stated way?

Upon your line of thought, music can't tell you what to do. This is correct. However, music can certainly persuade and influence your actions; intentionally and unintentionally.

One has to be predisposed to such an influence. In essence, they're already going down that road, and one thing or another will set them off; it's inevitable. You can't turn a 13 year-old, Hannah Montana-loving, youth group-attending girl into a menace to society by strapping her down and playing her Marilyn Manson music for an hour. It just doesn't work that way.

Edit: eh, bad and superficial example, but you get my point.

i listen to manson all the time, and i feel empowered. but when fallout boy starts playing at a party, people KNOW not to cross me because it DOES make me angry.

you cannot say that manson makes people want to do violent things because that just isnt right. people do violent things because they are violent people. no artist or genre can induce a mindframe.

you arguing that manson promotes immoral behaviour is the same as me saying that fallout boy does.

rob zombie does not try to project the same image with his music as Manson. Manson's music is all about the sadist pessimistic view on life, society etc.

zombie's is about horror movies and killers and offbeat 70's ****.

you are an idiot. don't you ever forget it either.

So, you are suggesting that people are predetermined violent people? You are saying that music does not influence anyone in anyway? These statements are foolish and illogical.

You may forget, but I'm not arguing that Manson is the main reason for one to be immoral, but it certainly does create negative feelings and may be a single cause amongst others. Like previously stated, these feelings might not be roused among every single person who listens to his music, but it could potentially affect someone to do wrong e.g. a person sees Manson bullying his fellow band members and might see this as acceptable behaviour and upon repeating these actions himself, become an immoral person.

May I also remind you how this argument regards not Manson as a base, but music in general. Therefore to say FallOutBoy promotes immoral behaviour, would allow me to simply agree with you.
