Almost everyone is mixed about Marilyn Manson. People either really love him or mercilessly trash him (heck even Gwar themselves made fun of him one time). I'm personally mixed too. I'm not really a huge fan of his whole gothic image or some of his songs (I do think a few of his songs are okay though). But what I do like about him is that he does have some very interesting ideas and he seems to have a good personality too. Now hear me out. Even if you do dislike something that doesn't mean there isn't any good things about it. Everything has its pros and cons, and Manson is no exception. Manson is actually really smart and I've learned a few things from him that have helped me out in life (but I wouldn't go as far as to say he saved my life. Bands don't save lives. If anything, you save your life). The reason I made this list is to show some of the good things about Manson (mostly his philosophies and stuff). You're still free to dislike Manson if you want. I completely understand because the guy isn't for everyone (if you can't stomach at least one song or music video by him then simply walk away). But just know that he does have some interesting ideas that do deserve to be acknowledged.
