Marilyn Manson Talks Rock Survival As Tour With Hole Marches On

Even though he had snagged the title first for a track on his “Mechanical Animals” album, Marilyn Manson recently saw the “Rock Is Dead” moniker snagged by Korn and Rob Zombie. That doesn’t mean that Manson hasn’t stopped contemplating the supposed demise of rock and roll.

“To me, it’s kind of like, the late Seventies, when all of our rock bands died because of the disco era,” Manson told MTV News’ Chris Connelly recently. “That was like a real time, where only the real strong survive, so I think that’s kind of where it’s at for rock and roll now” [28.8 RealVideo] .
