What do you get when you combine a sex icon and a serial killer? Well, Marilyn Manson of course! Born Brian Warner, Manson formed the band Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with guitarist Daisy Berkowitz in 1989. The band later shortened their name to Marilyn Manson and in 1994 debuted their first studio album, "Portrait of an American Family." This album has since been deemed one of the greatest albums in the history of metal and led with the iconic single "Get Your Gunn."

This was just the beginning of Manson and over the course of the next few decades, he altered music with his counter cultural lyrics, distaste for the mainstream, shocking costumes and affinity for controversy. In his career, he's experienced unprecedented success through multiple number one albums, countless songs on the charts, a handful of Grammy nominations and even a cover with Inked Magazine.
