ways in which heavy metal and alternative were                  in the 1990s
fusion of        and Rock
you would often have a rock band, but the singer would rap the lyrics, sometimes singing some of them, sometimes                    some of them

dark and brooding
moody, frequent shifts in atmosphere
as he was doing this music, was recorded in the            where Charles Manson followers killed people
tries to pick up on the vibe of the              of that
Marilyn Manson
Canton, Ohio
strong parallel to Alice Cooper
            , scary, outrageous
takes the name of a women, but its a man
fascination with the grotesque
after the middle of the 1970s Alice Cooper becomes a little bit camp and ironic
before the middle of 1970s, Alice Cooper was one scary hombre
Marilyn Manson is bringing all of the spookiness of Alice Cooper back
a hint of the absurd

an absurd engagement with the
