Marilyn Manson and Moral Panic: Marilyn Manson is often negatively represented in the mainstream media as he is perceived as deviant due to his use of style – black clothing and heavy makeup and satanic worshiping song lyrics. Due to this use of style and his appearance, Marilyn Manson was perceived as a threat to wider society’s values, which meant a moral panic occurred.
Marilyn Manson - "And all our yesterdays have lighted fools, The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage. And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing."
