'What do you mean I look like Steptoe?'

As he releases his greatest hits we take look at the weird and controversial world of the Antichrist Superstar


Marilyn Manson, the self-styled God of f***, is set to release a best of compilation next week, followed by a new single – Personal Jesus – a cover of the Depeche Mode song on October 4.


You can watch the freaky vaudevillian video right here.


Manson’s reputation for shocking the god fearing folk of middle America has come into question recently with many suggesting he’s just a big softy. Indeed one interviewer recently claimed he was happiest talking about “Mickey Mouse, monogamy, and water colours.”


Still, as his new best of is titled, Lest We Forget Manson’s litany of debauched antics and minor misdemeanors:


Manson’s real name is the slightly less controversial Brian Warner, though his band all have pseudonyms with links to serial killers, including Twiggy Ramirez, Gidget Gein, Daisy Berkowitz and Sara Lee Lucas.


Manson started out as a music journalist at the age of 18.


He was signed to Trent Reznor’s (leader of industrial noise merchants Nine Inch Nails) Nothing label in 1993


Manson ripped apart a copy of the book of Mormon while onstage in Salt Lake City.


The band released a cover version of the Eurythmics’ Sweet Dreams on their 1995 EP entitled Smells Like Children


In 1999 Manson was fingered for inciting two schoolboys to gun down 12 of their classmates in the notorious Columbine killings. It was incorrectly thought that the boys were ‘followers’ of Manson.


Manson allegedly had ribs removed so he could self-fellate. He recently denied this in an interview.


He is set to marry long-term girlfriend and S&M dancer Dita Von Tesse


He once cited Christ as “the first great celebrity” and the crucifix as “the greatest piece of merchandising that ever existed.”


He has set fire to his own drummer on stage


He was sued by a security guard for allegedly rubbing his genitalia on the guard’s head – the suit was eventually dropped


His stage act has previously included dragging naked women around on the ends of dog leads.


He collects human remains, prosthetics and Nazi memorabilia
