Marilyn Manson is an American rock band formed by singer Marilyn Manson and guitarist Daisy Berkowitz in FortLauderdale,Florida,in1989.Originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids, they gained a local cult following in South Florida in theearly1990sswiththeirtheatrical 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 iconicserialkiller,forexampleMarilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. Their lineup has changed between many of their album releases; thecurrentmembersofMarilynManson are the eponymous lead singer (the only remaining original member), bassist Twiggy Ramirez, guitaristsPaulWiley 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 bothonstageandoff.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 groupbeingblockedfromperforming,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 mediafalselyblamedtheband 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,inJune2003, referred to Marilyn Manson as "the only true artist today". Marilyn Manson is widely regarded as being one ofthemosticonicandcontroversial figures in heavy metal music, with the band and its lead singer influencing numerous other groupsandmusicians,bothinmetal-associated acts and also in wider popular culture.
