|Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids chronology|
Grist-o-Line is the fourth cassette by Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids, released in 1990, and the second to be sold publicly. According to flyers for the band's March 21, 1991 performance at the Button South in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a contest was also held in which the first person to call the Spooky Kids Hotline with the correct answer to "What was the name of Willy Wonka's boat?" won a copy of the cassette, as well.
Grist-o-Line came in a cassette case with photocopied sleeve artwork. Originally the front cover featured the band's logo above the typewritten text "FROM LUNCH WAGON TO GAS STATION..." and a clip art collage of an American flag inserted in a gasoline can. Worth noting is the absence of this text in almost all images of the cover on the Internet.
