This page documents all songs that are often credited as performed by Marilyn Manson, Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids, or individual members of the band, but are actually performed by another band or artist. It should be noted that throughout Manson's career, very few songs that have not appeared on official releases are rarely, if ever leaked to the public and therefore most supposed "rare" songs from Marilyn Manson are generally publicity stunts by unrelated bands to spread their music to a wider audience and should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt.

"Intro" is mostly piano and sounds similar to the first and last tracks of The Golden Age of Grotesque. Some people believe it is actually a Nine Inch Nails track, but this remains unproven.

"Justify My Love" is often credited as performed by Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids during The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat recording sessions. The song was in fact performed by Satan on Fire, a side project featuring band members Marilyn Manson and Twiggy Ramirez. It is a cover, originally written by Lenny Kravitz, Ingrid Chavez and Madonna and performed by Madonna in 1990.

"Keep Looking for Secrets"[edit]

"Keep Looking for Secrets" is often credited as performed by Madonna Wayne Gacy's side project, Dark Edges, although in reality no such project existed and the true performers of the song have not been discovered.

"Kill House"[edit]

"Kill House" is often credited as performed by Marilyn Manson, although the true performers of the song have not been discovered. It is attributed as a score for the unreleased film Suicide Is Beautiful, despite it being confirmed that Suicide Is Beautiful was never even a potential film, released or not.

"Like a Virgin"[edit]

"Like a Virgin" is often credited as performed by Marilyn Manson and Trent Reznor during the Portrait of an American Family recording sessions, although the true performers of the song have not been discovered. It is a cover, originally written by Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg and performed by Madonna in 1984.

The composition samples dialogue from the films Hellraiser (1987) and Reservoir Dogs (1993), and from "Sugar & Spice" (1993), the 21st episode of the first season of television series Picket Fences.

In the absence of evidence indicating a commercial release, it seems likely the song was originally distributed online without charge, possibly via peer-to-peer filesharing networks, and that it was perhaps spuriously attributed to Marilyn Manson and/or Trent Reznor by its original uploader (and likely author).

The song's true creator(s) has not publicly and verifiably claimed credit, perhaps in order to avoid potential legal action if, as seems probable, the cover was not authorized by those who control copyright to the original composition of "Like a Virgin".

Internet references to a "Like a Virgin" cover attributed to Marilyn Manson which date from at least 21 February 2003 appear to confirm the piece has been circulating since at least that time, but the original dates of creation and release remain difficult to confirm. Knowledge of the earliest-known instance's file format and non-null metadata (if any) could help to further specify its provenance.

The second version stems from an audio clip uploaded to YouTube on April 3, 2011 with the name "samples of new marilyn manson album", one of which according to the uploader is supposed to be called temptation. The three samples however were taken from the tracks "Robot Nation" (two samples) and "Original Synapse" by glamrock band Arockalypse and the Amazing Trans-Metropolitans, of their 2004 album The Ark [1].

"Third Nostril"[edit]

"Third Nostril" is often credited as performed by Marilyn Manson during The Golden Age of Grotesque recording sessions. The song is in fact an unknown instrumental electronic track with some speech samples and has nothing to do with Marilyn Manson. The title originates from an interview given by Marilyn Manson before the release of The Golden Age of Grotesque, in which he mentioned a possible track on that album with the same title. It is generally assumed the mentioned song became the album's title track, in which the words "third nostril" still appear.

"You Spin Me 'Round (Like a Record)" is often credited as performed by Marilyn Manson during the Portrait of an American Family recording sessions. The song was in fact performed by industrial rock band Dope. It is a cover, originally written and performed by Dead or Alive in 1984. This song is perhaps the most misinterpreted track by the band, as it is the fake track most alluded to or mentioned.

"Genie in a Bottle"[edit]

"That song has been on YouTube and some speculation has been made whether this was Manson or not performing this song. But this song was actually a Christina Aguilera cover song made by Dr Melancholia which is an Hungarian industrial metal band. The voice may sound like its him, but there's no record of Marilyn Manson releasing that song. And if he would have, it would've been much better mixing quality."
