Marilyn Manson Is Continentally Conflicted

By: Christopher R. Weingarten / March 31, 2009

Trying to download the first single off Marilyn Manson’s seventh album, The High End of Low, sends you into a Pan’s Labyrinth of links and e-mails and passcodes and military watchlists, so we’ll give you the spoilers: It sounds like the Antichrist Superstar has caught the same boogie-bug as Papa Trent. In fact “We’re From America” sounds almost exactly like LCD Soundsystem’s “North American Scum.” (Which sounds like “Homosapien” by Pete Shelley, but whatever.) Though I doubt James Murphy could have come up with “We’re from America, where they let you cum on faces.” Spoo-ooky dancefloor time, kiddos! [Universal]
