Top 10 Covers by Marilyn Manson

I had not fully appreciated how many songs Marilyn Manson has covered throughout his career — until now. I’m not going to include the ones he performed live that are not somewhere on the internet, because I’ve never heard them. Makes sense, right? 🙂

Here we go, in no particular order.

1. “The KKK Took My Baby Away” (The Ramones)

2. “Golden Years” (David Bowie)

3. “In the Ghetto” (Elvis Presley)

4. “Working Class Hero” (John Lennon)

5. “What Goes Around…Comes Around” (Justin Timberlake)

Guys. He covered Justin Timberlake. Oh my God. ❤

6. “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” (Johnny Cash)

7. “20th Century Boy” (T. Rex)

8. “Down in the Park” (Tubeway Army)

9. “Tainted Love” (Gloria Jones)

10. “Get My Rocks Off” (Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show)

I tried to focus on his less well-known covers, but I had to include “Tainted Love.” It’s just so good! Also, I have a couple of honorable mentions:

“You’re So Vain” (Carly Simon)

“This is Halloween” (Danny Elfman)
