* The emergence of the band in the mid 90s allowed theatricality, image, showmanship and spectacle to come back into alternative music which after the excesses of the HairMetal era was split into the serious and downbeat Music/{{Grunge}} with it's active rejection of anything that might suggest style over substance and the traditional Music/HeavyMetal schools which, while faster and more aggressive, still eschewed anything that might smack of a lack of seriousness. Marilyn Manson showed that there was a market for alternative music that showcased the visual as well as the musical elements of a band.

* Marilyn Manson (the person whose real name is Brian Warner, not the band), was on The O'Reilly Factor once. He pretty much won the argument, while still done up. Not only did he win an argument with the king of interrupting you and not letting you speak, he did it without changing a thing about himself.
** Even more, the two seem to have a fairly civil chat, with O'Reilly admitting that Manson is ''very'' well-spoken (and after that, minimizes interrupting him when he makes a point), and Manson admitting that Bill brings up valid points against him and that he respects him for challenging his views. The thing that makes this the most awesome is that he made Bill O'Reilly, who, as mentioned above, likes to steamroll over his guests and sometimes talk down to them, seemingly back down from what he probably assumed was going to be a shouting match.
* Marilyn Manson himself appeared on MTV on a program called Mothers Against Manson, in which he engaged in discussion with the concerned parents of two of his teenaged female fans. One mom's beef with Manson was that her daughter had turned away from Catholicism since becoming a Marilyn Manson fan. To this, Manson replied very calmly and not unkindly, "Maybe it's your religion, and it wasn't supposed to be hers."
* Manson's appearance in Creator/MichaelMoore's ''Film/BowlingForColumbine'' where Moore interviewed him in response to accusations that his music had helped drive the Columbine killers to commit their massacre. Manson was completely calm and level-headed and when Moore asked him what he would say to the killers if he had the chance, he responded "I wouldn't say a single word to them; I would listen to what they had to say, and that's what no one did." Best moment in the movie, right there.

* It's no secret by now that underneath all the shock and theatrics, Marilyn Manson (the person whose real name is himself, aka Brian Warner, not is an incredibly well-spoken and intelligent individual. At his peak, he usually scored Awesome moments just from the band), way he defended his art and his image.
** For example, Manson
was on The O'Reilly Factor once. He pretty much won the argument, while still done up. Not only did he win an argument with the king of interrupting you and not letting you speak, he did it without changing a thing about himself.
** Even more,
himself. In fact, the two seem to have a fairly civil chat, with O'Reilly admitting that Manson is ''very'' well-spoken (and well-spoken, and after that, minimizes interrupting him when he makes a point), and point. Manson admitting even goes a step further and admits that Bill brings up valid points against him and that he respects him for challenging his views. The thing that makes this the most awesome is that he made Bill O'Reilly, who, as mentioned above, who likes to steamroll over his guests and sometimes talk down to them, seemingly back down from what he probably assumed was going to be a shouting match.

* ** Manson's appearance in Creator/MichaelMoore's ''Film/BowlingForColumbine'' where Moore interviewed him in response to accusations that his music had helped drive the Columbine killers to commit their massacre. Manson was completely calm and level-headed and when level-headed, discussing exactly ''why'' it's so easy for the religious right to scapegoat him, as well as pointing out some hypocrisy in the accusations. When Moore asked him what he would say to the killers if he had the chance, he responded "I responded, in the best moment in the movie:
-->'''Manson:''' I
wouldn't say a single word to them; I would listen to what they had to say, and say. And that's what no one did." Best moment in the movie, right there.



* Manson's appearance on ''Series/OnceUponATime'' as the voice of The Neverland Shadow pretty much emobdies the term OneSceneWonder (despite being in two scenes). Dark, creepy, and everything you would expect the Shadow to sound like if it could talk. Well done, Mr. Manson.

* This is more of a moment for Manson's unlikely friends than Manson himself, but in an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tco6_-yP40 episode]] of ''Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher'' in the 1990s, Manson gets lambasted by [[HolierThanThou Lakita Garth]], who insisted that she was more Christ-like than he was. Finally, Manson defends himself, and when Garth tries to condescend again, ''[[TheBradyBunch Florence Henderson]]'' jumps to his defense:
-->'''Henderson:''' Maybe he's more Christ-like than ''you'' are.
