Sorry g[S], I guess we submitted at the same time :D Litso 22:50, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
just to clarify for all of you out there who have bothered to look at this list of supposed fake covers or misconceptions a fair ammount of those in the list are genuinely Manson songs, there is an album called "Rare and Acoustic" which has at least a few of the songs on the list. I suggest someone cross reference the list with this album and remove them, for example "Like a Virgin" and "Forbidden Fruit", it is fairly obvious that these are manson singing because of how unique Warner's voice is, here is a link to details of this album, its even in this wiki so obviously this has been a relative oversight for somebody. http://www.mansonwiki.com/wiki/Rare_and_Acoustic
- Actually, Rare and Acoustic is an unofficial release. Bootlegs are notorious for containing songs by supposed artists. Like a Virgin & Forbidden Fruit are both fakes. [god]speed -MansonWiki Admin 08:25, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
- Curious, with the unknown fakes, do we have any way to prove it? Also, go listen to that "Knife" guy's cover of Antichrist Superstar. Are we really claiming that that can manage a good Manson impression? (126.96.36.199, 01:49, 1 May 2013)
An idea to improve the page
Split the "Unknown Artist" one under a subheader. Manson's notorious for unreleased tracks, and usually the only ones we can confirm are legit are the ones that Daisy released. The "Suicide is Beautiful" stuff reminds me of Snuffy's VCR, a legitimate unofficially released track (plus the voice in Kill House sounds like Manson to me), and the Like A Virgin cover could very well be Manson and Trent messing around while high as balls. Eat Me, Drink Me could have had a piano opening. It's hardly unrealistic for the album. The same goes for The Golden Age Of Grotesque having an electronic intro. Antichrist Superstar originally opened with Heaven on the Brain, a dark industrial metal instrumental opening. Additionally, some of these I can't even find online, so maybe links should be included for the tracks, both just for informational reasons and because if the artist is unknown, having more people able to hear the song increases the chances we find out who.
The songs I can't find: Intro, Necrosexual, Keep Looking for Secrets, Third Nostril. --188.8.131.52 22:28, 17 April 2016 (CEST)
"Justify My Love" and "Like a Virgin"
"Justify My Love"
This is another questionable Madonna cover very much like the "Like a Virgin" correction that I made. The statements concerning "The Beaver Meat Cleaver Beat" sessions, as well as the Satan on Fire information, is indeed a fact. It was, however, also included on the Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids 100 Minute Demo. Since Brian and Jeordie were members of both projects, when the Satan on Fire arrangement was abandoned, they chose to include a few of their favorite tracks on the official 100 Minute Demo, and therefore makes it credible to label it a Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids track. Jeordie didn't officially join the band as Twiggy Ramirez until nearly two years later, but as a friend of Brian's, I'm confident that he gave permission to use the track. Brian adamantly held tightly to the rights of all materials he had involvement in, and still does I'm sure. So, it's arguable regardless, but definitely released on the 100 Minute Demo. I can confidently assure the readers of this Wiki of that much.
"Like a Virgin"
I personally own a legitimate copy of the Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids "100 Minute Demo" released in 1992, and it IN FACT does include the VERY SAME VERSION of "Like a Virgin" commonly heard on YouTube. I'm a huge fan and have been since I was about 10years old (I'm now nearly 40 lol). I assure you that I am correct about this. I am fully aware that it doesn't sound like the Manson that most people are used to hearing, yet it is him, nonetheless. I was compelled to get this correction on here after seeing it. I was attempting to confirm another questionable cover that I have been seeing and found the information on here to be quite accurate... other than this one in particular. Honest mistake, easily made.
The "100 Minute Demo" is not an official release, it was compiled by a fan. The band was aware of it at the time and kind of unofficially "blessed" it but it was never sold by them. Sleepingbri (talk) 22:30, 16 June 2020 (CEST)
