|Marilyn Manson video chronology|
Dead to the World is the first video album by Marilyn Manson, released on February 10, 1998 by Interscope Records. It primarily contains a live performance from the Dead to the World tour, but also delves into backstage and archival footage of the band. Dead to the World has since gone out of print, but a possible reissue has been alluded to in recent years.
Notable features are extensive protests by right-wing Christian groups, spoken relations of meaning and intent by Manson himself and the brutal, immense theatrics presented by the band in the live setting. Based from Antichrist Superstar, this video features six songs from the album as well as hits from earlier releases Portrait of an American Family and Smells Like Children. Naturally this tour reflected the album it was built upon - Manson's criticisms of organized religion in this video and otherwise are ironically proven in the very actions of the people featured protesting his credibility.
Marilyn Manson October 1996
The controversial events from the Antichrist Superstar
tour serve as the backdrop for this amazing document,
all as seen through the video eye of the band's own cam-
eraman. The picketing zealots, the fulminating moralists,
the disingenuous politicians, the tens of thousands who
came to see for themselves and, of course, gazing out-
ward from the very heart of the storm, Manson himself.
One hour of live concert performances intercut with
behind the scene and backstage footage that will help
you to understand what it must have been like to be at
- "Angel with the Scabbed Wings"
- "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)"
- "Apple of Sodom"
- "Antichrist Superstar"
- "The Beautiful People"
- "My Monkey"
- "Irresponsible Hate Anthem"
- "Rock n' Roll Nigger"
- "1996" (Spoken)
Manson stated in November 2005 that he was interested in re-releasing Dead to the World and its follow-up God Is in the T.V. on DVD, though this has yet to be followed up on. In March of 2008 a petition was started for this re-release. The petition could be signed here (the petition has been expired).

- It is noteworthy that in the process of post production of live recordings, in some songs, Manson rerecorded his voice(Unconfirmed), and in others, Zim Zum rerecorded(Unconfirmed) his guitar. The reasons, wanted to give a better production to recording what was actually because, naturally the quality was not efficient enough or good for the market. Not otherwise rerecorded, it was as it was originally recorded on the show.
