The infamous serial killer Charles Manson has written a letter to shock rocker Marilyn Manson from his prison cell, according to NME. And while the letter is written in a frankly bizarre manner, there's a definite threatening undertone to it.

"To Marilyn Manson, It's taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he's got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I'm SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It's a far out balance."

"Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don't do is what I will do what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps I don't need, it's not a need or a want. Couped coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you're just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That's 2 dump trucks doing the same as CMF 000007. Charles Manson."

Marilyn Manson (real name Brian Warner) took the latter half of his stage name from Charles Manson, while the first half is a reference to actress Marilyn Monroe. Members of his band including Twiggy Ramirez, Ginger Fish and Madonna Wayne Gacy were also named based on the Hollywood star first name/serial killer last name formula.

While Charles Manson's letter might seem threatening, there is next to no chance of the killer ever coming into contact with Marilyn Manson. He is currently serving life imprisonment for the series of murders that he and his Manson family cult committed in 1969.

    If this is a threatening letter, I'd like to see a love letter. "Bears eat rabbits that mimic the ways of a falling water tower amongst a flame of clowns and sheep, which, come to think of it, is an interpretation of sea horses training to grow up to be politicians." Charles Manson has always been a "master" of wordplay... Just look at his bat shit crazy interviews haha.

    That sentence you wrote actually has some sort of idenfitiable structure, though.

    Everyone always complains about they way UG articles are written, but we should all be glad that Charles Manson deosn't write for UG.

    Sad thing is, Ive read worse nonsense from Billy Corgan, Liam Gallagher and Dave Mustaine (just to name a few) on this site.

    How does Charles Manson even know about Marilyn Manson? I thought he was in prison? Why does he have access to anything that would educate him about new music or Warner? He should be locked in a cell or out breaking rocks. Its a punishment.

    Charles Manson isn't a serial killer. He orchestrated two murders but didn't take part. Serial killer is something completely different.

    I don't know why you were downvoted. You're right. He was a conspirator and a cult leader. He never killed anyone (as far as we know), let alone multiple people. However, he did convince other people to kill people a few times.

    Yeah, I'm not too sure why either. I was only gently correcting a misinformed point. He's very clever, calculating, yet a complete loon, and this article just paints him as the loon (when you address him as a serial killer).

    He killed a guy, I'm not sure of the exact details. Google it, it'll be there. Or read 'Helter Skelter', a book about the Manson Family and murders and trials. He learned brainwashing techniques from his time studying Scientology. Thought I'd add that.

    Being locked up inside a prison for as long as he has, you're probably not going to have very good grammar.

    Charles Manson is not a serial killer. It has never been proven that HE actually killed anyone. He is a cult leader.

    He is not a serial killer! Neither is Ed Gein... The term is being made a generic term for,"you did something and people were killed..." That said, Charlie is not stupid. I read that letter as you are a fake, I am the real deal, watch out. He is in prison, but he didn't need to go along when his family went on a killing spree...

    I agree with you on your interpretation of his message. I also agree with the person who said he that he shouldn't have access to anything educating him. Or the guy who said he doesn't need to go anywhere to commit murders. The sad truth is he had a crazy girlfriend brainwashed and his accomplice in the murder run his own video blog something. He has a website too. There was a reason this guy was confident about staying in prison, proving to the jury he was crazy $ dangerous before his last hearing(he's 97 during his next hearing) and not attending a hearing since 1997. He has been caught with contraband cellphones and his friend is using his videos to teach prisoners not to be inhibited His threat to Marlyn is a real danger of he took the time for it. The prison system, which shows how terrible it truly is, is to blame for allowing Mason and his friends to express themselves through media. Or not watch his crazy, brainwashed girlfriend. Because of this flaws system, Manson will still be a threat after his death.
