** ''Eat Me, Drink Me'' is a ''hell'' of a BaseBreaker. Manson's post-divorce album, recorded solely with Tim Skold and filled with a plethora of confessional lyrics, was either an interesting new frontier, or a messy mid-life crisis on record, depending on who you talk to.

** 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''.

* FoeYay: Manson and his first guitarist, Daisy Berkowitz, never missed a chance to be nasty about each other, whether it's bashing each other in interviews or dragging the other into court for any reason. Not to mention that Manson's autobiography is peppered with constant denigrating comments about Daisy's sex life. Yet, amazingly enough, as of November 2011 Daisy and Marilyn have reconciled and are on speaking terms again.

* FoeYay: Manson and his first guitarist, guitarist and co-founder, Daisy Berkowitz, never missed a chance to be nasty about each other, whether it's Berkowitz. Big time. Their long habit of bashing each other in interviews or and dragging the each other into court for any reason. Not to mention that reason makes them sound like a divorced couple fighting over custody of their only child (which, in a way, they sort of are.) Most of this would be pretty standard, but for some reason, Manson's autobiography is also peppered with constant denigrating comments about Daisy's sex life. Yet, amazingly enough, as of November 2011 Daisy and Marilyn have reconciled and are on speaking terms again.life which is, um, interesting.


Added DiffLines:

* ThePeteBest: No less than five examples, the last three of whom ended up suing.
** 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''.

* GrowingTheBeard: Not that they didn't shake up some parents and right-wing zealots before, but ''Music/AntichristSuperstar,'' aside from being a stylistic breakthrough, was the point where they became the most controversial band in America.

* BaseBreaker: The later albums, such as ''Born Villain'' and ''The High End Of Low'', have incredibly mixed reactions among the fanbase.
** Averted with ''The Pale Emperor'', which has gotten near-universal acclaim from both fans and critics.
* ByronicHero: The protagonists of each album in Manson's Triptych are implied to be this ( [[MindScrew assuming that they're all different people]]).
