Creepily sounding music, screaming vocals and lots of controversy... I have no doubt Brian Warner couls write children's music, as he is very intelligent and knows when it is appropriate to portray his stage persona and when not, but his band definitely shouldn't perform it. - Martin_Canine

With their punk-ish Industrial outfit, weird fashion, sampled noise, distorted vocals and rebellious attitude, they are perfect for every teen that doesn't give in to mainstream... but please think twice if you want to play songs like "Vena Cava" or "Maggot" to your three year old child. - Martin_Canine
