Top 10 Best Marilyn Manson Songs

The Top Ten
1 The Beautiful People

Marilyn Manson is my favorite person in this world. He's a true genius. I love most of his songs and believe that he's gotten very far in his life. He's my inspiration, and I really love him. My favorite songs by him are "Coma White," "Lunchbox," "Sweet Dreams," "The Beautiful People," "Tourniquet," "Mechanical Animals," etc. He's definitely the best!

This song gives me and other Manson fans confidence to be ourselves! Do you even think Manson would be known to us if it wasn't for this song? Listen to this song, and it will get you through everything! I promise!

I am shocked by the fact that it's a song with no killing and self-harming. I had a bad impression of Gothic songs! The song rocks!

2 Coma White

Coma White is neither pessimistic nor optimistic, but realistic. If I had to vote for all the songs in the world, I'd pick Coma White by Marilyn Manson. It's amazing how a man can capture all the things you think about in one song and describe it in such simple, beautiful, and emotional words. I love the meaning of the song. The song is about how sometimes you cannot stop things from happening. So people, come on, vote for this song, get it to the top, because it deserves that, and it's just right! The song represents something that everyone has once experienced.

This song is the best Manson song ever! I worship Manson, and this is by far my favorite song of his! Ginger Fish and Twiggy also nail this song! I don't know how Tainted Love and Sweet Dreams are on this list to vote for. Those are covers. The best Manson songs are on his albums Mechanical Animals and The High End of The Low.

3 Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

This song is a masterpiece! It is almost haunting. I love every part of it, and it truly never gets old. This is one of the best songs ever that never really got the recognition and fame it should have. No artist will ever reach the lyrical level that Marilyn Manson is at. Every song on all the albums is great. But I think that Tourniquet and Great Big White World should be on the list. The Mechanical Animals era, in my opinion, was the best! But again, everything is great.

"Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics was such a bright, energetic, and peaceful song. It was widely regarded as a masterpiece. Marilyn Manson took this masterpiece and was able to make it even better. This song is a true testament to the band's greatness and will forever remain as their best song. The transformation from a pop sensation to a slow, dark song is so iconic of the band, and was so unexpected.

This song is awesome, one of the greatest Marilyn covers, and I like it more than the original version. The great riff and solo are something I always listen to, and I never get tired of them. In my opinion, this riff is one of the best riffs in the history of rock and metal. It should be number 1 because it's more popular than Beautiful People. When people talk about Marilyn Manson, they always mention this song. You are awesome, Marilyn.

4 The Dope Show

This song makes me smile. Manson is an artistic genius, and not only does his music have quality, but his lyrics also show a message. He is an individual with a natural talent unlike anyone I've ever known! Incredible song.

Such a catchy song. You just have to sing along to it. I think his Mechanical Animals album was one of the better ones he made. You can really hear a difference in his sounds when you compare albums. I think this song deserves number 1!

This song is epic because it shows Manson's creativity. The lyrics are really great, written in his style and convey his thoughts. The Dope Show has always been and will always be my favorite song!

5 The Nobodies

Such a good song. It's a good commentary on kids who are being bullied or made fun of and feel like they don't matter.

The lyrics are about the Columbine Massacre, and they're awesome. But I think MM could have written more lyrics for this song.

This is another great song by Manson. The lyrics are raw and true. His voice, as always, is incredible.

6 Great Big White World

An epic way to start off their best album. A "must listen" if you've never heard it before.

Another kickass song by a kickass musician. Marilyn Manson never ceases to amaze me. Whoever hates this song doesn't know a good song when they hear it. This is just plain fantastic!

The best song from Mechanical Animals. Amazing music and vocals.

7 (S)aint

This was the first song I heard by Manson, and the opening riff hooked me! The music video is quite bizarre, but this is my favorite song by him, except for Beautiful People and New S***!

This song is catchy, and it describes him perfectly. It also describes other legends and rock bands as well. The lyrics are clever. It's a great song.

Best song ever made by him! I love it. It's so... I can't describe it! Actually, I love all of his songs. They are so good! I love Marilyn Manson. He is the most awesome artist in the world!

8 Man that You Fear

The saddest part about this song is that the line "Are all your infants in abortion cribs" substantiates a rumor that Marilyn Manson's mother was going to abort him and told him so.

The song, inspired by what Manson had to grow up with and how it turned him into what he is now, is absolutely amazing. It needs to be higher.

This song means a lot to me. I've been through hell and back, and this song just numbs everything for me. I absolutely love it.

9 The Fight Song

This great song should be higher than 12. It could easily be in the top five. For me, this is the best. Also, I don't even know... Marilyn Manson used music from many other bands, like Depeche Mode.

Extremely underrated song.

Very good to play when you're stabbing someone to death... or so I've heard.

I hate Marilyn Manson, but this song is very awesome.

10 Tourniquet

I can relate to this song. I spent a lot of my spare time for a year comforting a friend I had. It was obvious I liked her. I didn't really care about going out with her, more or less just staying friends. She would always come to me whenever something was wrong, and in a way, I was her mental punching bag. She never really thanked me for helping her out, and I was often deprioritized by her. This isn't my favorite Manson song, but it should definitely be in the top ten.

This is my favorite Marilyn Manson song of all time. God, this song puts me in this state that can only be described as torturous and fantastic euphoria. It's relatable, it's different, it's what I've been looking for my entire life so far. This is where his lyrical creativity is displayed so well.

Why isn't this higher? I honestly think anything from The Golden Age Of Grotesque should be up there. I mean, they're good songs, but they don't compare at all to the original trilogy. And the lyrics to this song, the music, the vocals, they should be up higher.

The Contenders
11 Tainted Love

This is the absolute best lyrical description of the last relationship I was in. I love all of Marilyn Manson's music, but his rendition of this song is amazing.

His voice in this is really attractive. The way he sings this song twists it into his own. It isn't even a cover, really. He made this HIS song.

I grew up listening to Marilyn Manson's music, and I remember listening to Tainted Love the most! I have all his CDs! I love him and his music!

12 Antichrist Superstar

They have the Antichrist Superstar era which, to me, was mostly this album, but also Mechanical Animals and Holy Wood. Then you have the mid-era Golden Age, Eat Me, and High End, and now Pale Emperor and Heaven Upside Down. Out of his first era, I think this album is the best, and this song is the height of the album. His mid-era is more emotional and still good, but nothing tops this. This is way better than Beautiful People! I think most like this because they heard it on TV and radio, so they have nostalgia.

It is the anthem of Manson, the very song that defines Manson, or at least that period. When seen performed live, it's hard to believe that it is not higher. Where "Coma White" represents the softer and more pained side of Manson, this song is the raw "two fingers up" rejection of the established order that Manson is so well known, and loved, for.

This is Manson's anthem - his defining piece of art. Why is it not higher? You chumps misunderstand Manson. That's obvious.

13 Mobscene

I just have to say whenever I listen to this song on the computer, I get blown away every single time. This song is so awesome, and I love the music video that goes with it. Perfect combination. And whenever I am in a really bad mood, I just listen to it, and it makes me feel a lot better.

Even though some may think this song isn't a typical "Marilyn Manson" song and that it is bad, I think it is quite good because it shows a different creative side of him. Love it, love him.

The intro is awesome. And when a song has a cool intro, it's pretty much going to be remembered as an amazing song.

14 Heart-Shaped Glasses

My favorite song. The tone, the vocals, the chorus is dark and sad, but behind them, you feel somewhat happy. It made me want to cry the first time I listened to it. This song is very special in my heart.
PS: Goes perfect with the game Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines.

Excellent song, well worth listening to. Marilyn Manson really knows what he's doing.

This song is just awesome! One of the best songs by Marilyn Manson. It would have been further up in my own "top ten Marilyn Manson songs". The video is awesome too!
"Don't break, don't break my heart, and I won't break your heart-shaped glasses!"

15 The Reflecting God

This song is the climax of Manson's entire artistry. Here is the moment that the Antichrist faces God for a showdown, only to find a reflection of himself on the battlefield. And in killing God, so too does he kill himself.
"I went to God just to see, and I was looking at me. Saw heaven and hell were lies. When I'm God, everyone dies."

As a huge fan of Marilyn Manson, I have plenty of favorite songs of his and was going to vote for "Wrapped in Plastic" until I saw this one. I love this song from the beginning to end. His voice in this track is just incredible. I love him endlessly. This song is raw and packed with emotion.
Heaven Upside Down.

Absolutely should be number one, The Reflecting God is my favorite song at the moment. An amazingly powerful chorus and awesome lyrics once you listen to them often enough. Best Marilyn Manson song.

16 This Is the New S***

Very underrated. This is top 10 or top 5 material, so what is it doing down here?

Definitely the best.

17 Disposable Teens

I'm kind of a new fan, and this is the song that hooked me onto Marilyn Manson. Loved it to the very end!

This song is probably tied with Coma White for my number one, but I hated seeing this one so low. Amazing song.

When you hear him play live, this is the song that everyone loves. It sounds the best too.

18 Dope Hat

I don't think a lot of people realize the role that this song played in Manson's later fame. Allow me to explain. If this song wasn't created, the remixes of it wouldn't have been made. Smells Like Children, Marilyn's first big success, was originally going to be a remix EP for this song. If Smells Like Children wasn't made, he might've never had the success that he did with his later albums.

This is classic Manson right here! Along with "Lunchbox", "Misery Machine", "Cake and Sodomy", and "Get Your Gunn"!

How are this and other songs from Portrait not higher on this list?!

19 Angel with the Scabbed Wings

I'd say this is one of Manson's heaviest songs. His screams in this song are just unbelievable. When I first listened to the song, I didn't think much of it, but now I'm in love with it. You have to listen to this one, man.

The energy in this song is phenomenal. Along with The Reflecting God, they are really the pearls of Antichrist Superstar and his whole repertoire.

His screams in this song are truly unbelievable and insane. He kills this song. I love it so much.

20 I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)

A wondrous song that is unfortunately over shadowed by the other tracks on the album it was on. In Marilyn's catalogue, this sticks out like a fire in the arctic.

How come this song was the only single from Mechanical Animals not on Lest We Forget? It had better chart positions than Rock is Dead, and that song was on it!

Why is this in the 29th position? This is an awesome song!
The chorus, the beat, the lyrics.. Its amazing!
This song should have been in the top 10 at least!

Norm life baby "we're white and oh so hetero and our sex is missionary. "
Norm life baby "we're quitters and we're sober our confessions will be televised. "

You and I are underdosed and we're ready to fall
Raised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all

I don't like the drugs but the drugs like me
I don't like the drugs, the drugs, the drugs

Norm life baby "our god is white and unforgiving we're piss tested and we're praying. "
Norm life baby "I'm just a sample of a soul made to look just like a human being. "

Norm life baby "we're rehabbed and we're ready for our 15 minutes of shame. "
Norm life baby "we're talkshown and we're poiting just like Christians at a suicide. "

You and I are underdosed and we're ready to fall
Raised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all
I don't like the drugs but the drugs like me
I don't like the drugs, the drugs, the drugs

There's a hole in our soul, that we fill with dope. And we're feeling fine.
It's short and sweet, that's the best part about it!

21 Minute of Decay

This song is so heavy. There's so much emotion put into it, not to say that Marilyn Manson's other songs don't have emotion in them. But this one, this one's very special. One of my favorite songs of all time.

It saddens me to see so many people who look at Manson for the imagery and not the art. This guy's a true artist.

My favorite Marilyn Manson song ever. Should be #1.

22 The Golden Age of Grotesque

The chugging thumps that go on throughout the song bring it so much life. It amazes me that this isn't higher on the list.

Another awesome song off the Golden Age of Grotesque album.

Oh! It's OUR song with my girlfriend. Must be at least in the top 25...

23 Rock is Dead

This is like the first Marilyn Manson song I've ever listened to. And this is what got me into him. Still to this day, he's become one of my favorite musicians of all time. And he's more than just a musician. He's an artist.

Come on, really? This is actually the best song in the catalogue. There's no reason why it should be down at 23, and this is coming from someone who doesn't really care much for most of Marilyn Manson's songs. But this is a damn anthem right here.

This song is one of my all-time favorites from Manson. The rhythmic beats and the lyrics are very good in taste. It should be near the top of the list, around Astonishing Panorama of End Times.

24 Long Hard Road Out of Hell

I can relate to this song, especially with all the wars going on in the Middle East. My family had to move.

This is the best song he's ever written and contains all typical MM elements: mysterious, threatening, dark. The video clip is a state of art.

Love this song, my favorite out of all his songs.

25 The Last Day on Earth

I remember this when I just bought the album. It was the last day of 7th grade, and I just lay on the grass with this girl I really loved who was moving away. I think it's a great song, sad it's this low just because it wasn't on the radio. Definitely one of the slower but smarter songs.

Such a beautiful song. I'm so sick of people saying he's evil and destructive. Does this song sound evil and destructive to you?

You can't judge people by appearance. That would really hurt them.

Ridiculously good, timeless song. This list is not a list if this song doesn't at least poll in the top 20. I mean, seriously, come on. Where the hell is Disassociative? And why is Mechanical Animals so low, man?
