In the mid-1990s, there were no rock stars that captured the dark hearts of young people like Marilyn Manson and Trent Reznor. The goth idols toured together, made music, and brought chaos with them wherever they went. Their friendship culminated in Manson’s 1996 Antichrist Superstar, a brooding, chest punch of an album that unleashed a torrent of hate on Middle America.
The friendship between Manson and Reznor has had its ups and downs over the last two decades, and many of their craziest stories are told in Manson’s autobiography - including anecdotes about Reznor and Courtney Love. The two goth rockers have also shared their personal history with the media, and since both men are still alive and kicking, they may yet have more to share.
