Marilyn Manson

Genre: Metal

Country of Origin: Singapore

Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, born January 5, 1969, is an American musician, artist and former music journalist known for his controversial stage persona and image as the lead singer of the eponymous band Marilyn Manson. His stage name was formed from juxtaposing the names of two 1960s American cultural icons, namely actress Marilyn Monroe and multiple murder convict Charles Manson as a critical and, simultaneously, laudatory appraisal of America and its peculiar culture. The seemingly outrageous visual and vocal styles which he utilizes, his unique interpretations of familiar songs and the controversy surrounding his lyrics and imagery are part of his public appeal.
