Band: Marilyn Manson
Marilyn Manson is the epitome of a "Shock Rocker". He was Brian Warner when at age 18 he moved to Tampa, Florida. He became friends with Scott Mitchell, who was another social outcast. Scott played guitar and they decided to form a band. Brian took the name of Marilyn (Marilyn Monroe) Manson (Charles Manson). Scott became Gidget Gein. The rest of the band members had taken on names in the same manner. A woman's name for the 1st name and a serial killer's last name for the 2nd name. Talk about "shock". Anything that was socially unacceptable Marilyn did to the chagrin of the media and others. However, it paid off for the band as they got overwhelming free media coverage. Parents hated him, religious leaders despised him, and the media well they gave him all the attention he craved.
