Marilyn Manson — 'The Beautiful People'

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.


A traditional spooky season jam for you all this morning. My parents used to play this song in the car when I was wee toddler and it consistently scared the shit out of me. Then I got older and had a Manson phase. As you do.
