* {{Feghoot}}: Manson's autobiography ''The Long Hard Road Out of Hell'' featured an entire chapter about a girl he dated who had an unusual circular birthmark around her vagina. Though many events happen during this chapter, he does close it by stating that someone else he knew started dating her and "snatched her away like a greedy little Hobbit and indeed became Literature/{{The Lord of the Ring|s}}.

* LeadBassist: Gidget Gein and Twiggy Ramirez both probably got more attention than any of the guitarists. For a time, Twiggy became the guitarist, but now he's back on bass so Tyler Bates can do guitar.

* MrFanservice: During the Spooky Kids days, this was the role of the bassist, Gidget Gein.



* WeUsedToBeFriends: Manson was close friends with [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor,]] who got them on his Nothing Records label, produced their first two albums and generally helped promote them. Then, at some point they had a pretty drastic falling out, and despite a short reconciliation around 1999-2000 (enough for Manson to make a cameo in the "Starfuckers, Inc." video and play a concert together), they pretty quickly went back to not being on such good terms anymore. Trent took a potshot or two at Manson, mocking his "Personal Jesus" cover when responding to a fan's question, and Manson's still angry because the Nothing people lost the master tracks for his first three albums[[note]]This wasn't strictly Trent's fault, as he got involved in a lawsuit with his former manager and gave up the label. Also, Rob Sheridan had to completely re-do the artwork for the ''Pretty Hate Machine'' remaster because Gary Talpas' original was lost by the Nothing staff as well, so they weren't only incompetent towards Marilyn.[[/note]]. The whole feud's died down somewhat since, even if they're not gonna start being friendly again anytime soon.

Among other things, the other members of the band microwaved his guitar picks and four-track recorder just for shits and giggles. Daisy ended up quitting halfway through the recording of the album.

* ThePeteBest: No less than five examples, the last three of whom ended up suing over failure to pay royalties.
** Olivia Newton Bundy and ZsaZsa Speck were the first bassist and keyboardist, but wrote nothing and only played a few shows before quitting to form another band.
** Gidget Gein was the second bassist and co-wrote a number of the songs, but his addiction to heroin got him kicked out of the band. He played on the first album, ''Portrait of an American Family'', but never toured. He later became an artist, but [[AuthorExistenceFailure died of an overdose]] in 2008.
** Sara Lee Lucas was the first drummer, but came into conflict with Manson. He was set on fire during one show and left without saying goodbye.
** Daisy Berkowitz was the first guitarist and co-founder of the band, but clashed with Manson and Twiggy during the Smells Like Children tour and ended up leaving halfway through the recording of the second album, ''Antichrist Superstar''.

* DudeLooksLikeALady: Twiggy in the Antichrist Superstar era (convincing enough to make a [[MoralGuardians Christian right wing group]] say he was a female guitarist who did things onstage, which is only half-right). Manson also got into drag for the Music/NineInchNails video "Starfuckers, Inc." (a.k.a. [[{{Bowdlerise}} "Starsuckers, Inc."]]), and in the 'Long Hard Road Out Of Hell' video. He was surprisingly convincing on both occasions.

*** After being kicked out of the band, Daisy started going by his initials, SMP, and joined Jack Off Jill for a time. Seeing as he was decidedly not female, and it was a riot grrrl band, [[http://www.jackoffjill.com/alumni/scott.html this had to be implimented]].

'''Marilyn Manson''' (initially Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids) are an [[UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates American]] rock band founded in 1989. Most of their early music technically falls under industrial rock with some [[HeavyMetal metal]] elements (a metal style commonly referred to as IndustrialMetal) before deciding to step foot in every genre from straight-up rock to GlamRock, but the band are best known as shock rockers (a label they resent, as they felt they never were trying to be shocking, but just doing what they wanted,) with their graphic imagery and ruthless attacks on the mainstream media winning them a reputation of the kind seldom seen before in music. In fact, the [[YouCanPanicNow moral panic]] against them was so great that they were blamed for the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} massacre by sections of the media, under the belief that the killers had been inspired by their music (ironically, the killers hated them and saw them as sell-outs, but were Music/{{KMFDM}} and Music/{{Rammstein}} fans, instead).

* AscendedFanboy: A young Manson (real name Brian Warner) appeared on an Creator/{{MTV}} program talking to a VJ about the band he was putting together. According to his autobiography, he also interviewed ''Trent Reznor'' in the late '80s while working as an amateur music journalist.

** Similarly, the cover for ''Holy Wood'' depicts a violent and bloody image of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, and was thus censored by the band's label. It was originally designed to show how violent the popular scene actually is, and the act of censoring only further emphasized the violent nature of the religious parable.
