"This Is the New Shit" is the second and final single and the second track of the fifth album The Golden Age of Grotesque. The song was seen as poppy, with the chorus - and title - possibly referring to the fact that Tim Skold had joined the band, bringing with him a completely new and different style of music that featured industrial beats and sounds previously ignored in earlier Manson albums. While this could be regarded as Manson's attempt to sell to the masses, the song in fact is rallying against contemporary music, i.e., 'the new shit', and goes so far as to spell out what Manson viewed the formula for mainstream success to be:

"Babble, babble, bitch, bitch, rebel, rebel, party, party, sex, sex, sex, and don't forget the violence, blah, blah, blah, got your lovey-dovey sad and lonely, stick your stupid slogan in, everybody sing along."

Music video[edit]

Manson as he appears in the music video near the entrance to Bordiau Hall.

The music video, co-directed between Marilyn Manson and the Croenworths, features a basic performance by the band, intertwined with scenes of the band members preparing for a concert in the dressing rooms.


The music video was filmed at Parc du Cinquantenaire (a.k.a. Jubelpark) in Brussels, Belgium. Scenes from AutoWorld and The Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History (primarily Bordiau Hall), which are points of interest in the park, can be seen in the video. The Mercedes-Benz 770 model used in the video was primarily used during World War II by Nazi officials, including Adolf Hitler.

An alternate vocal-recording was used with the lyrics "This is the new hit" and the song title reading "This Is the New *Hit."

Lyrics[edit]

    Everything's been said before
    There's nothing left to say anymore
    When it's all the same

    Rebel rebel party party
    Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
    Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
    Stick your STUPID SLOGAN in:
    Everybody sing along.
    Babble babble bitch bitch
    Rebel rebel party party
    Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
    Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
