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 “Manson Pleads Not Guilty To Sexual Assault
On Security Guard”
). 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.
