Marilyn Manson was born Brian Hugh Warner on January 25, 1960. This prolific artist is known for creating new sounds within the metal and rock genres. Notorious for his often controversial entertainment gimmicks, Marilyn Manson chose his stage name after Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. It represents the polarity of good and evil, and the stage name of each band member also strives to represent this same dichotomy. In Manson's words, Marilyn Manson had a dark side and Charles Manson has a good, intelligent side.
Marilyn Manson stumbled his way into music while pursuing a Journalism Degree at junior college. While covering articles on other musical acts, Marilyn Manson met musicians that heavily influenced his musical styling today. He lives a high-profile life style that included a brief marriage to Dita Von Teese, a burlesque model known for inspiring the vintage Hollywood Glam in contemporary times.
Marilyn Manson also has a number of highly-publicized lawsuits that include allegations from former band mates as well as from others involving sexual misconduct, offering cocaine to fans, and civil battery. He has released six studio albums, one live album, three compilation albums, as well as nine demo albums. Marilyn Manson has either appeared or had his music featured in more than 25 films and has written two books. This artist has always rejected the notion of contemporary perceptions of normalcy. With his plethora of artistic interests, Marilyn Manson is also recognized by his art, which Max Henry said were similar to that of a "psychiatric patient given materials to use as therapy". Regardless, his art has impacted enough people to hold three galleries now, and he continues to paint watercolors today.

They have been banned from countless venues for various reasons, including immorality or their use of animals on stage.
