Marilyn Manson is an American rock band formed by singer Marilyn Manson and guitarist Daisy Berkowitz in Fort Lauderdale,Florida,in1989.Originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids, they gained a local cult following in South Florida in the early1990sswiththeirtheatrical live performances. In 1993, they were the first act signed to Trent Reznor's Nothing Records label. Until 1996, thenameofeachmember was created by combining the first name of an iconic female sex symbol and the last name of an iconic serialkiller,forexampleMarilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. Their lineup has changed between many of their album releases; the currentmembersofMarilynManson are the eponymous lead singer (the only remaining original member), bassist Twiggy Ramirez, guitarists PaulWiley andTylerBates,keyboardist/percussionist Daniel Fox, and drummer Gil Sharone.

In the past, band members dressed in outlandish makeup and costumes, and engaged in intentionally shocking behavior both onstageandoff.Their lyrics often received criticism for their anti-religious sentiment and references to sex, violence and drugs, whiletheirliveperformanceswere frequently called offensive and obscene. On several occasions, protests and petitions led to the group beingblockedfromperforming,with at least three US states passing legislation banning the group from performing at state-owned venues. Theyreleasedanumber ofplatinum-selling albums, including Antichrist Superstar (1996) and Mechanical Animals (1998). These albums, alongwiththeirhighly-stylizedmusic videos and worldwide touring, brought public recognition to Marilyn Manson. In 1999, news media falselyblamedtheband for influencingthe perpetrators of the Columbine massacre.

As this controversy began to wane throughout the 2000's, so did the band's mainstream popularity. Despite this, Jon WiederhornofMTV,inJune 2003, referred to Marilyn Manson as "the only true artist today". Marilyn Manson is widely regarded as being one of themosticonicandcontroversial figures in heavy metal music, with the band and its lead singer influencing numerous other groups andmusicians,bothinmetal-associated acts and also in wider popular culture. VH1 ranked Marilyn Manson as the seventy-eighth best rock bandon their 100GreatArtistsof Hard Rock. They were inducted into the Kerrang! Hall of Fame in 2000, and have been nominated for fourGrammy Awards.In theUS, theband has seen eight of its releases debut in the top ten, including two number-one albums. Marilyn Mansonhave sold inexcess of 50millionrecords worldwide. « hide
