Ok, so here is something I never thought I’d write. Avril Lavigne (Mrs. Chad ‘Nickleback’ Kroeger) did a song with Marilyn Manson. What is most shocking, though, is that it is not complete garbage. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not good. It’s just not the worst thing the world has ever heard. That honor is still reserved for the entire Nickleback and Papa Roach catalogue.
Just riddle me this, Batman, but how is Marilyn Manson still managing to make headlines? The man hasn’t made a record worth listening to since The Golden Age of the Grotesque and that album was borderline good. Avril Lavigne, well, she is a pretty pop star so it is expected that she continues to pop up occasionally. Manson’s last two or three albums were complete garbage and yet he still keeps popping up . . .
Anyway, I’ll bet you want to hear the song, right? No? Well, too bad. I listened to it, so you have to, too!
For the record, I used to be a massive Marilyn Manson fan. In fact, I still believe that Portrait of an American Family, Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holy wood (In the Valley of the Shadow of Death) are some of the greatest shock rock albums of all time. His last efforts, though, have not been good at all.
