Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s. more.

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

3 Rammstein Rammstein Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin . more.

Now, imagine thd following: Shakepeare's "Titus Andronicus" recited over heavy Industrial rock instrumentals, and you remotely have an idea what Rammstein sounds like to someone who understands their lyrics. Now imagine the same band recording a children's album. - Martin_Canine

4 Angelspit Angelspit Angelspit is an Australian Industrial music project in the cybergoth subculture that formed in 2003. Current members are Zoog von Rock (vocals, production) and George Bikos (guitar), former members include Amelia Arsenic (vocals, production, 2004-2013), Valerie Gentile (guitar, 2011-2012) and Chris more.

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

"From the guys who brought you "The Bad Touch", "A Lapdance is So Much Better When The Stripper Is Crying", "Screwing You on the Beach at Night" and "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo", here comes The Bloodhound Gang's next smash hit, "Mary Had a Little Lamb"! " - Martin_Canine

8 E-Rotic E-Rotic E-Rotic is a German eurodance group. The band originally consisted of the duo, the lead singer Lyane Leigh, the rapper Raz-Ma-Taz and the group's producer David Brandes.
