Marilyn Manson Cover 'Tainted Love,' Record Live DVD

Band's version of Soft Cell's new wave classic to be featured on soundtrack to 'Not Another Teen Movie.'

Since he's been accused of poisoning all he touches, it sort of makes sense

that Marilyn Manson has chosen to cover Soft Cell's 1982 new wave classic,

"Tainted Love," for the upcoming film "Not Another Teen Movie."

A video for the track was shot by Philip Atwell, who has directed clips for

Dr. Dre and Eminem. It will air on November 19. The soundtrack for "Not

Another Teen Movie" will be released on December 4.

A remix of Manson's track "Nobodies" is currently featured in the Johnny Depp

film "From Hell," which hit theaters October 19. Originally, Manson was approached to score the film, but creative differences with the production team nixed the deal, a spokesperson for Manson said. In the end, South African composer Trevor Jones supplied the sparse orchestral score.

Manson's other project of the moment is a live DVD, which was

shot October 8 at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. The

still-untitled DVD is scheduled for release sometime next year, the

spokesperson said.

In all probability, the controversial rocker will be hamming it up at the

opening night party for "Not Another Teen Movie" — if he's not in jail, that

is.

On November 9, Manson is due in a courtroom in Clarkston, Michigan, for a

preliminary examination of charges that he sexually assaulted a venue

security guard by rubbing his crotch against the man's head during an

Ozzfest concert in July (see [article id="1449051"]"Manson Pleads Not Guilty To Sexual Assault

On Security Guard"[/article]). Manson is being accused of felony fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct along with misdemeanor assault and battery. If convicted, he could face more

than two years in prison.
