There is nothing that Marilyn Manson can’t sing and though he is associated with performing songs that are anti-Christian, his newest video and song release is actually the old gospel classic “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” and as we’re embracing a 50-year-old Marilyn Manson, it seems his fans don’t mind him singing gospel classics.
Of course, the Pale Emperor’s version of “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” is far from an altar call and the video conjures up imagery that makes you feel as if Marilyn is ready to execute justice on someone, or even himself, but it wouldn’t be Manson if he didn’t put his own unique branding on any song he covers.
Marilyn Manson could sing Amazing Grace in heavy black eyeliner with one contact-lensed eye and it would still be a classic hit that reveals a deeper meaning to the lyrics then what the gospel message intends.
Manson is nothing if not an artist that makes you confront your religious beliefs and what society views as “acceptable.”
