Satan on Fire was formed sometime between 1991 and 1992 and was the first side project between Marilyn Manson and Twiggy Ramirez. The band was an implied Christian death metal band. They never played any shows due to the fact that the local Christian club would never book them, although they did record a handful of songs including: "Justify My Love", "Mosh for Jesus", "Devil in My Lunchbox", "Cat in the Hat", "Number Nine Part One", "Number Nine Part Two" and "Number Nine Part Three". The band was relatively short lived, and formed as more of a joke than a serious band.
According to Manson, it was "A fake Christian death metal band we started to play at Christian nightclubs. Twiggy sang and I played lead bass. The premise was that we were a death metal band that was singing for Jesus. We wanted to infiltrate Christian nightclubs and cause havoc. We also formed another side project together called Mrs. Scabtree, where I played drums and Twiggy was the lead vocalist, dressed up like a black woman." When asked, "Did you ever actually infiltrate these Christian nightclubs?" Manson answered, "Well, we never really got that far. But we did get a song onto the radio. It was called "Mosh for Jesus".
Only seven Satan on Fire songs are known; any others remaining have yet to surface.
