Guns, God and Government World Tour is the third video album by Marilyn Manson, released on October 29, 2002 by Marilyn Manson Records. It features live tracks and performances that switch between visuals of various shows from United States, Japan, Russia, and Europe while maintaining a single consistent music track.

The film is notable for the documenting the controversial and outlandish theatrics Marilyn Manson uses during his performances, such as stilts, religious props, choreographed lighting, pyrotechnics, and extravagant costumes. Guns, God and Government World Tour follows the band between many international locations as they perform songs from their albums Portrait of an American Family, Smells Like Children, Antichrist Superstar, Mechanical Animals, and Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death).

It also contains special features of a backstage look at Marilyn Manson's tour including cameos from such artists as Ozzy Osbourne and Eminem. This DVD, unlike the deluxe edition of Lest We Forget – The Best Of, is not a collection of music videos but a collection of live performances.

Source Rating
Drowned in Sound 4/10 [2]
IMDb 8.0/10

Drowned in Sound, which assigns a normalized rating out of 10, gave the DVD a score of 4 while noting, "Marilyn Manson exists because of the band's constant re-invention of their image and ability to stand out from the surrounding rock climate. With every band now cashing in on the lucrative DVD market, the G.G.G. World Tour DVD needed to be so much more to keep Manson elevated from his counterparts...[however] the DVD falls well short of the competition."[2]
