For someone who gets so much credit for being shocking and orginal, I seem to find "borrowed" ideas left and right. In his defense, I like Manson, once you get past his stupid STUPID image. "ooOoOOoh, I represent everything that's wrong with america." Didn't Gwar do that first. There's one. He started off a huge ALice Cooper ripoff, especially his live shows, there is two. Here's a general one, his overall sound, it seems too, I wanna be Trent Reznor. Except the Mechanical Animals album. I was listening to that a little while ago looking for ripoffs, but then I was like, "This is a fairly original album!" Then I don't like the drugs, but the drugs like me came on... It's "Fame" by David Bowie. Dead ringer. Listen to the verses, you'll see. Lets not forget his recent hit. The name escapes me... mobscene? He uses pretty much the same cheerleaders that Faith No More used in the way more awesome song "Be Agressive." Anyone have any other borrowed ideas I missed?
