Marilyn Manson's Antichrist Superstar is his most ambitious record to date, telling the 3 cycles of the vurnerable human Wormboy into the merciless superhuman Antichrist Superstar.
"Fuck blind consumerism. Stupid people deserve what they get. They'd buy shirts that say 'I'm fucking stupid' if Cindy Crawford told them it was cool. I'd love to kill all of them, but I'd be doing them a favor. The worst punishment I can give them is to let them wake up every morning and lead their stupid fucking lives, let them raise their stupid fucking children in their stupid fucking homes, and, ofcourse, make a record called 'Antichrist Superstar', which will annoy and destroy each and every one of them. Fuck you America. Fuck me. The world spreads its legs for another star..."
