Listing Detail Tabs

While Marilyn Manson's approach was hardly original (in fact, many of the band's gimmicks could be directly linked to bands past), few rock groups on a major label had been so unashamedly confrontational and unapologetic. In fact, all the members went by aliases that combined a movie star's name with a serial killer's. While such future releases as 1995's SMELLS LIKE CHILDREN and 1996's ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR would place the band at the top of the heavy metal/alternative heap, it was the group's debut from 1994, PORTRAIT OF AN AMERICAN FAMILY, that got the ball rolling.

The band received a major break right off the bat by becoming good friends with Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. Signed to his new record label, Nothing, Reznor helped co-produce the debut with singer Manson, and gave the band the opening slot on NIN's inaugural 1994-1995 arena tour. Manson's music was more straightforward and more metallic than Nine Inch Nails (it was based more around distorted guitar riffs than electronics), as evidenced by the debut's best tracks, "Cake and Sodomy," "Lunchbox," "Dope Hat," and "Get Your Gunn."
