Top Ten Marilyn Manson Songs


The Top Ten

1 The Beautiful People The Beautiful People

I love this song I wish I could hear it on the radio and sweet dreams

They this on radio where I come from,I even requested this song when they asked for song request! ( it's an epic song listening to it right now ) - Toucan

Beautiful People is the best MM song ever... But still waitin' for new album Born Villian. M/,

I am shocked with the fact that it's a song with no killing and self harming (I had a bad impression on the Gothic songs! )
The song Rocks!

I was spellbound by this song and video. Mesmerising and disturbing Gothic imagery. Reminds me of Hieronymus Bosch paintings, confronting and nowhere to hide

2 Coma White Coma White

One of my favorites, Badass song. Take a minute to actually listen to the lyrics, they are so strong and amazing. I love everything about Manson.

... He needs more recognition, TELL YOUR FRIENDS!

Coma White is not a pessimistic, neither is optimistic, but realistic. And if I would've had to vote of all songs on the world, I'd pick Coma White by MARILYN MANSON. It's amazing how a man can put from all the things you think about, in one song, and describe it in such a 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, cause it deserves that, and it's just right! The song represents something that anyone has once experienced.

Let's vote to get this to no1 people! Love this song! The others in this list are amazing too, but this one is really meaningful!

How can the beautiful people be above this?
Coma White is 3849393939 times better!

3 Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Absolute favorite Marilyn Manson song. I was watching Trick 'r treat and in one of the scenes this started playing. I had subtitles and showed the name of the song. I went immedietly onto Itunes and bought. Great beat and not too gothic.

Jeff the Killer theme song!

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 every that never really got the recognition and fame it should have. No artist will ever reach the lyrical level that Marilyn Manson is. Every song on all the albums are great. But I think that Tourniquet and Great Big White World should be on the list. The Mechanical Animals era in my option was the best! But again everything is great.

I love this song, the music is amazing and the lyrics are so breathtaking I've only heard a couple of marylin manson songs but I must say that this is the best one yet, it should definitely be number one! I can't believe it isn't!

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.

I was listening to this today and being weird in the car

This song is just awesome! It's the most played song on my iPod and the video is awesome too! The live version on The Last Tour One Earth is also amazing, especially with the backing vocals

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

5 The Nobodies

Love love love!

I love it. Just so beautiful to listen too. Gives me chills every time. This was definitely a hard choice, since a lot of their songs are incredible (This is the new s***, the beautiful people, arma-g******-motherf*****'-geddon, the fight song)

By far the best song

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.

6 Great Big White World

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

Whoever thinks this song is about race is stupid. Really.

My favorite MM song from the Mechanical Animals album, period.

Really amazing opener that perfectly sets the stage for the album with a very bleak and futuristic feel

7 Man that You Fear

One of my favorite songs; it's very emotional and so is the music video.

Still gives me goosebumps.

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. Absolutely amazing song. Needs to be higher.

8 (S)aint

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

awesome song.. the video was banned from the US.

My favorite Marilyn Manson song. The chorus is so catchy and creative. His voice and vocals are perfect and so is the music he used.

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

9 Tainted Love

I grew up listening to Marilyn Manson's music and I remember listening to this the most! I have all his cd's! I love him and his music!

Great cover! This shows that, sometimes, it takes more than one artist to perfect a song.

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 into his own. It isn't even a cover, really. He made this HIS song. - maarilynmaanson

10 The Fight Song

This great song should be higher than 12. Maybe at top five this could be very easy. For me this is best. Also I don't even know.. Marilyn Manson used many music from other bands.. Like Depeche mode

Most Adrenaline Rush I've ever gotten through a song

all his songs are awesome but this one I think is the bset - Okami

I love this song and the video, he looks really hot in it :P its meaningful and amazing and the beat is so rock and roll


The Contenders

11 Antichrist Superstar

They have the antichrist super star 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 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 then beautiful people! I think most like this because they heard it on T.V. and radio so they have nostalgia

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

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 song feels like a powerhouse of strong beats and wicked lyrics. Truly one of Manson's best.

12 Tourniquet

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.

Lunchbox is my fave, then Tourniquet

This should definitely be higher... Manson's first 4 albums are by the far the best, songs like (s)AINT shouldn't even be on this list. Listen to songs like Valentine's Day and Cruci-Fiction in Space... way better than most of the songs on this list.

I can relate to this song. I spent a lot of my spare time for a year comforting this 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 with her. 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 un-prioritised to her. This isn't my favourite Manson Song, but it should definitely be in the top ten.

13 Heart-Shaped Glasses

Awesome sex

The Sexiest music video I've ever seen and the Lyrics are damn awesome...

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

This is a very underrated one. Should be in the top ten, at least. - Shake_n_Bake13

14 Mobscene

I could listen to this song all day. Literally. Bad ass song.

I just have to say when ever
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 when ever 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

Orgasmic song...

15 The Reflecting God

some of the songs in this list shouldn't even be here Manson has better songs and this one is one of them, it should be on the top 10 at least.
Not a surprise that most of his best songs are in the bottom of the list though but it stills sad.

Marilyn Manson at his best. This song summarises his whole philosophy on religion and God. The heavy bass and loud, guitar heavy chorus make this song one of his best.

I don't know why this isn't in the top ten it's one of Marilyn Manson's best works ever it definitely deserves to be on the top of the list

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

16 Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes

For a song borne from a T.V. show soundtrack, this track, even if debatably, laid the foundation of which the house made from Holy Wood was ultimately built from. its brash aggressive sound (of which neither gaog nor tripytch era manson would manage to recreate) combined with the mantras "kill your god / kill your T.V." and "this is what you should fear / you are what you should fear", as well as the common theme of "violence for the people" help add to the brutal vibe of the song that pumps you up, whether as a warcry or as a walkout song, cementing endtimes as, if not one of manson's best, then certainly his most underrated.

Easily the best song, it was nominated for a grammy for best metal song in 2001. Top 5 should look like this:
1. Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes
2. The Beautiful People
3. The Fight Song
4. The Nobodies
5. Tainted Love
Get it sorted people, this list is terrible atm.

How is this not top of the list? It's their best song by far, the rest are either crap or average.

17 Dope Hat

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

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.

Catchy and just straight up cool sounding

How is this and other songs from portrait not higher on this list?!?

18 Angel with the Scabbed Wings

Pure energy

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, & I'm now in love with it. You HAVE to listen to this one, man.

Excellent track. My personal favorite.

The energy in this song is phenomenal. And together with The Reflection God, it are really the pearls of Antichrist Superstar and his whole repertoire

19 Minute of Decay

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

I love the bass in this song. It's so underrated.

20 Long Hard Road Out of Hell

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

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 things. Mysterious, threatening, dark. Videoclip is a state of art

Amazing videoclip, pure transgression

21 The Golden Age of Grotesque

Another awesome song of off the Golden Age of Grotesque album.

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.

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

Best song ever... truth

22 Disposable Teens

I'm kind of a new fan and this is the song which 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

Just amazing. The best MM song ever I think

23 The Last Day on Earth

Marilyn manson is my favourite band of all time and this is my favourite song from him.

I remember this, when I just bought the album... It was the last day of 7th grade and I just layed 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 doesn't at least poll top 20, I mean seriously come on.. Where the hell is Disassociative? And why is Mechanical Animals so low man!?

24 Apple of Sodom

That song is art! Pure example of Manson's art... I don't know why she comes from a film soundtrack! It's so creepy also the video... WOW!
I'm a little bit scared by that...

I can't stop listening to it ever since I first heard it. The video is sort of like Closer by NIN but more sci-fi. The sound is haunting but in a good way

25 Rock is Dead

Come on really? This is actually the best song in the catalogue. No reason why it is down at 23, and this is coming from someone who doesn't really care much more most of MM 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.

This is like the first Marilyn Manson song I've ever listened to ever. 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.

This is way way too low! Again, it's a song people overlook! Maybe not top 5 but it is in my opinion top 10! The beautiful people is a work of art and no question the best!

26 This Is the New S***

Shut up


Definitely the best

27 Cake and Sodomy

This is the reason this song is hard to download. Needs to be in the top ten. Listen to this song. If you haven't heard it. You haven't heard Marilyn Manson.

Hey! Get this song up.
This is one of the best songs of marilyn manson!
The lyrics are just awesome, and so is the music, come on!

This is a very cool song! Must be in top 20! But one channel sounds very awful as I know on chorus

Classic Manson why not higher?

28 Overneath the Path of Misery

The song on Born Villain trailer and the best song on the album..

One of his best written songs. Should at least be top 15.

29 They Said that Hell's Not Hot

Marilyn Manson is a genius. In every song I can find a part of me, at any time. Thanks, Brian.

This is so beautiful. I love it.

I love Marilyn Manson. Best song from Marilyn.

This song is great!

30 In the Shadow of the Valley of Death

Oh man, this song is epic, just like the other 100 Manson songs. This song is forever the Valentine's Day horror song.

31 Coma Black: Eden Eye/The Apple of Discord

It's an absolutely amazing and it has a very deep meaning.

What are you people smoking? Three of the songs in the top 20 are covers. Coma black is a lyrically simple song about how the character in hollywood doesn't feel like he belongs and the thing that made life good left him "this was never my world you took the angel away I kill my self to make everybody pay"

This song and Coma White are brilliant pieces of art by Marilyn Manson. Perhaps it was the band at the peak of their powers.

This is the most beautiful song I have ever heard. His baritone voice is so gorgeous. Definitely one of my favorites.

32 Mechanical Animals

This has to be one of the best of Manson's work - complete with amazing guitar riffs by the wonderful John 5

This song is so underrated. It needs way more attention!

Such a beautiful songs. Behind New Model, this is my favourite song on the album.

This song is so outstanding!

33 This is Halloween

This is an AWESOME song, dude. You can't call yourself a fan till you listen to this song. EVERYBODY SCREAM!

Legendary song! This song made me a fan of him! Its really that good! This so needs to be in the top 10 ATLEAST!?

By far my favorite song from him. I cannot believe it's number 19, I mean c'mon!

This is the all time best song by him! I have no idea why it's all the way down here!

34 No Reflection

Marilyn Manson has a lot of good music, but I LOVE this one. I fell in love with this song the first time hearing it and I've been addicted to it ever since. I could hear it again and again and not get tired of it. This is definitely one of his best, without a doubt. I love Marilyn Manson. He doesn't look that bad under the makeup and he's a really great and intelligent guy in real life. I have a lot of respect for him. He's one of my rock idols.

Newest marilyn manson single has to be one of the best! It's a classic stomping industrial metal manson hit! Born villain is definitely gonna get manson back in the spotlight!

This is easily one of Manson's best songs. I consider myself a fairly decent Manson fan, but I haven't heard much of his more recent stuff (outside of Pale Emperor) I tried a few songs off Born Villain and shrugged them off, not bothering to buy the album. But then I hear No Reflection, and my god, I got hooked.

Guys, I know, this is a new song, but that don't mean it has to be underrated! Just listen to it first. It's a really awesome song! Just love it...

35 Arma -goddamn-motherf***in- geddon

The song is very cool! Should be higher than 20.. For me it is best song of Marilyn Manson. You don't think so? Just listen it and after vote yea

from their newest album, The High End of Low.

Epic! Should be in the top ten

Truly a work of art

36 Lamb of God

Such a beautiful song with powerful lyrics. Not only his best song, but probably the greatest song I've ever heard. Can't believe it's this low on the list!

One of Brian's best songs. He is just a man like you and me but he won't be forgotten.

If I was in a band. Would love to cover this song

Nothing's gonna change the world

37 The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles

Absolute banger.


Great song. And the video's great to.

First manson song I listened to, actually. big favorite

38 Wrapped In Plastic

I've been a huge fan of Marilyn Manson for years, so my favorite songs of his are perpetually changing. This one, along with "Negative Three," remains burrowed deep within my heart.
Once you hear this song, it's hard to get it out of your head. I love how energetic this one is; he is just flawless.
Heaven Upside Down. - maarilynmaanson

39 Misery Machine
40 Dried Up, Tied and Dead to the World

If you have not heard this song I don't know why you like Marlin Manson in the first place. Listen to this song.

I loved this song on my Antichrist Superstar album.

My love for Marilyn Manson's music brought me here

Why on earth is this so low? I'm so confused

41 Disassociative

A great song

Easily his most underrated song. Not his best overall, but the one that goes under the radar the most. - Verderame

Very underrated... This song is so heartfelt.. My favorite

This is my favorite manson song

42 I Want to Kill You Like They Do in the Movies
43 The Love Song

Very underrated, great song. Should be higher, give it a listen if you already haven't.

Do you love your guns? (Yeah)
God? (Yeah)
The government?
Do you love your guns? (Yeah)
God? (Yeah)
Your government? F*** yeah..

44 Little Horn
45 Hey, Cruel World

How is this 52nd?!? This should easily be in the top 15. His screams in this are unbelievable, it kicks so much ass

46 If I Was Your Vampire

6 A. M, Christmas morning... No shadows no reflections here, lying cheek to cheek in your cold embrace. The words are so powerful in this song... Needs a higher vote, one of my favorites!

I think this is Manson's deepest, most thoughtful song. And to think that he just woke up and wrote it on Christmas Day? Amazing!

When I heard this song for the first time, it was so emotionally strong that I felt just exhausted. Even today I can't listen to this album in the whole, 'cause it is just too strong, too emotional, too dark for the one time. And 'If I was your vampire' makes me almost cry every time! Great, great song!

This one of Manson's most deeply affecting songs, it has one really lasting appeal. And the last part of just wants to make you keep coming back for more! Best song by Manson!

47 The Death Song

This song deserves to be in the top ten at the least, just because it was more recently posted then the other songs don't make it any less of a masterpiece, demons don't age and neither has the one in Mason that's writing his songs, CLEARLY!

What a great bass line, great john 5 riff, the BAND on is best

The BAND on is best,5 twiggy, Madonna, manson, fish

My best song after that I heard the most of his songs. Many people didn't hear this song, but it's one of the best. I think that other two that I wanted to vote are "Born Again" and "This is the New Sh**", but this is the best song

48 Third Day of a Seven Day Binge

Very, very good song!

Best MM song yet

Best new song, thumbup

49 Killing Strangers

Slow paced song but it will get you going. Personal favorite of mine - Jonerman

This sound should be at least at top 10

His best song

The John Wick OST!
Heavy Song!
