Marilyn Manson Disses Linkin Park, Reveals Why He ‘Frowns’ Upon Suicide

Marilyn Manson criticized Linkin Park’s music in a new Sun interview. He also said he ‘frowns’ upon the idea of suicide, though he said he does not mean to disparage Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell personally by doing that.

He says: “I grew up listening to Soundgarden though but I always thought Linkin Park sounded like The Backstreet Boys meets Korn — it just wasn’t for me. But later I played shows with them, hung out with them all. I think I took them to their first strip bar — but I’m not really sure.”

Manson said he does not like suicide, and would not try to kill himself because he would be ‘great’ at it.

“I’ve always frowned upon the idea of suicide. Not to be disparaging but I think it affects too many other people. I’m not saying that about Cornell or Bennington, just to be clear.

“I’ve never tried to kill myself because I’d be great at it.

“I’ve even put in my will that when I die, which will probably be never, I want my funeral to be loaded with dynamite and to explode so everyone there dies.”

Manson discussed modern society in a recent Yahoo interview.

“Regarding all of this, I have developed a new system and a new way of looking at things. Neither you or I have been to outer space, obviously, so we take it for granted the picture we see of the Earth from space is the Earth. But I don’t like to take things for granted anymore. I don’t like to hear bits and pieces of information unless it’s from a person in person, and I generally can tell when somebody’s being sincere or not. So I can’t comment on what I would think about something that I don’t really have my own theory or statement about.

Nor do I know the president, nor do I know any of these other things that are happening. I do think it’s strange that a lot of Christians thought that Oct. 6 was going to be the end of the world — the Apocalypse. And that was the day my record came out. Is that a coincidence? I don’t know. Are these the end times? There have been the end times since the beginning of time. They wrote about the end times in the Bible, however accurate that book is. And I’m not gonna give it that much validity. Everything is a copy of something else — something that has been passed along. It’s like that game Telephone where you whisper in someone’s ear and they whisper in someone else’s ear.

So it’s almost like the hieroglyphics. Things get diluted through the amount of people telling the story and their agendas. And oftentimes when I’ve been made into a pariah, it’s been for other people’s political uses. I don’t think that they ever intended it to be towards me. Am I a bad person sometimes? You know, I don’t think anyone could say they’ve always been a good person. But ‘good/evil’ — these are moral statements.”

    So edgy. Dude, have you heard your trash music or looked at the mirror lately? He seems like a person who has to beg others to finally pay attention to him.

    • MissAnthropy

      If I’m deciphering your convoluted insults correctly ….
      That “trash” you claim has NO relevant or currently viable CONTENT… Just so happens to have just dropped his newly (and highly anticipated) album release, “Heaven Upside Down.”
      That album was listed as #1 Rock album and #2 overall top selling album on the billboard music charts. So what do you have to say in light of those facts, were you unaware that your own inadequacy shines through your kiddie pool slander? Do thou know unless you’ve written multiple platnium records over the span of over the last 25+ years… then you (by your own definition) are lower than the “trash music” and by proxy lower worth? Or did your mother raise you to be misinformed, as well as a demeaning definition of uncouth. I suggest you might wanna look past your hair metal cassette tapes, or lame irrelevancy you are so devout to, when claiming these things in regards to Manson.
      He’s been a fucking rock star a couple decades now & all the while, Ill take a wild guess to assume you’ve not created a thing in your pathetic days. Not any thought provoking artworks, that are in demand in today’s market of artworks, film, photography, paintings, sculptures, lyrical content, music, OR ANYFUCKINGTHINGELSE to compete with Mr. Svperstar, himself.
      Also, has been selling out venues nationwide for his upcoming tour. You ever even perform a packed house of fans just there for YOU?
      I doubt that.
      Maybe it’s you that needs to be talking to yourself about how you need to take a look into your reflection. Just saying.

      • Olga Stewart

        And you’re not being insulting?

        Pot, kettle, black.

        • MissAnthropy

          Yes. In response & defense of my favorite artist in the world, to the original stupidity that dude was defaming Manson with. You’re Gothdamn right. Aaaaaand?

          • Olga Stewart

            Favourite artist?

            Well, I suppose it takes all types.

          • MissAnthropy

            You know nothing of his work. Until you do, back the fuck off.

          • Ilou

            Why even defend an artist that throws insults at another artists? He’s not worth it and he knew the reaction he would get for that. Apparently attention means more to him than any kind of art.

          • MissAnthropy

            He didn’t insult art or artists, in fact if you reread the article he went out of his way to make sure he didn’t insult those artists that you’re so in defense of, he insulted people that happened to choose suicide over life, that is actually pretty fucking smart, if you ask me.

          • Ilou

            Well, I found his comments regarding Linkin Park unnecessarily edgy and insulting. I mean, this guy of all people is dissing them? As for the rest of the interview, I don’t like pseudo-smart and “oh so shocking” people. I still think he’s trash.

          • MissAnthropy

            Also, what happened to your first claim that his music is trash and obsolete & that he needs to take a good hard look in the mirror you have nothing to defend against that now because I already slammed that shit to the ground or what?

  • Olga Stewart

    1) Three good musicians are in that photo. And Marilyn, you aren’t one of them and 2) So you just admitted that you would plan to murder your mourners?

    • MissAnthropy

      Learn how to take a joke. He obviously isn’t going to murder his entire funeral party. It’s humor. Look into it.

      • Olga Stewart

        You never know .

        Especially with those aggressive types out there.

        • MissAnthropy

          What a fkn joke you are, honey. No wonder you weren’t given a sense of humor. Or irony. Awww.

  • George Jimmy

    Wow, I was a fan of Marilyn before I read this. Not anymore and I just deleted all his music from my devices and computer.

    • MissAnthropy

      Ohmyfuckinggoth, whatever shall he do? How will he EVER get by as a musician without your acceptance of his philosophical & existential principles?
      Oh, that’s right, he won’t be missing any fan worth their salt. No-one among the nobodies would be so easily turned off by his opinions, so as to delete his entire discography. Seriously. Grow up.

      • Olga Stewart

        And why don’t you learn how to be both polite and civil.

        • MissAnthropy

          Polite? Civil? Oh yeah, because that’s what Manson is perpetuating in his music. Really?
          Not everyone wants to be passive aggressive, like you.
          Some of us are aggressive aggressive. Deal with it.

          • Olga Stewart

            And some of us don’t need to be aggressive in order to get through life.

            I’d course, for some it’s much easier to be combative than to be a decent human being. And to be decent would actually take both some understanding of others and to know what being decent means. Which, of course, some people don’t have a clue about.

          • MissAnthropy

            This is about me defending an artist I adore and you claiming I need to be civil in the process. What about my name, WHICH IS MISSANTHROPY, makes you think I am anything like you? Or and I’d ever take advice from a woman named Olga. *shudders* Ugh, disgusting. I bet your boyfriends (or girlfriends) have a real hard time screaming that name out during sex. Lmfao. Go ahead and have fun with that. Also, have a nice life. How’s that for civil, Olguuuuh?
