– I don’t know. His music is just so fun to me. – I think if I was hearing it
without the music videos, it might make it
a little bit more tolerable, ’cause I think that the images
are just throwing me off. That was a trip through
a very dark place of humanity. – I liked it. It was fun. – With music nowadays,
it’s empty, and it’s lifeless. But this is– even though it’s something I wouldn’t listen to on my own time, it’s interesting how
his artistry is important to him. ♪ (punk rock music) ♪ – (FBE) So Marilyn Manson is known for always being on
the cutting edge of shock and has even said,
“My point on Earth is chaos.” Do you think that this persona
that Manson puts on has helped his music career or hurt it? – Well, if that’s what he’s going for, then it’s definitely
helped his music career. – I don’t think he’d be where he was today if he wasn’t as crazy as he was. – It’s there to get people very angry, being like, “What is this?” But then it gets you talking about it. – Definitely helped. I really appreciate him knowing who he is enough to be comfortable with it, enough to produce stuff that he likes. – In one way of making it so that the people who do like his persona
and all that, they’re happy, then it definitely does get from there. But to a wider audience, it definitely loses him
a good amount of sales because not many people are gonna want to get into something
so outrageously different. – Controversy is his thing, I guess. So there’s definitely people
who don’t like him and aren’t a fan of him,
but I don’t think he would care. Think he would probably appreciate that. – If they’re into his music, they’re gonna be die-hard into his music, and they’re gonna only
listen to his music. I feel like they would hate anyone
that tries to be like him. His style is his own style, and that’s what kind of makes him
and his fan base so connected. – (FBE) Many times over his career,
his music and videos have been blamed
to impact people’s behavior, including the Columbine
school shooting in 1999, where it was rumored that the shooters were big fans of his music. – Okay, but how many fans
does this guy have? Of course you’re gonna
have some crazy fans. That’s so stupid. – A lot of the things that you do
does reflect on your actions. But a shooting– that’s going way too far. Just because they listen
to that person’s music doesn’t mean that it should
reflect on the singer. – There’s so many factors,
like how they’re raised, what’s surrounding them,
how did they grow up? Like, it’s not solely–
you can’t blame Marilyn Manson. It’s just all dependent
on how you raise your kid. – (FBE) Do you find that today
that parents or the media still blame artists and video games and other types of media
for influencing teens? And is there any merit
to that kind of thinking? – Um, yeah. I mean, there’s always
gonna be something to blame. Like, if you just think of
all of the Grand Theft Auto series, always gets blamed for violence. Video games for me at least can be
a stress reliever sometimes. People are just people,
and you just have to accept that. – Adults look at our
generation and think that, oh, this hip-hop and this
Black Ops and Call of Duty and all that kinda stuff
influences us to behave badly. And that’s why they’re like, “Oh, your generation
is going down the toilet.” – It is really connected. They’re gonna feel less that it’s wrong when they see other people
doing it or portraying it. Then they get this idea,
seeing that type of stuff is okay. – The music industry has a definite impact on the way we live our lives,
depending on who we look up to. – If somebody watches it and they don’t have
any inclination towards it, then it’s fine. I don’t think it really
pushes people towards anything that they wouldn’t
have done anyway. – I don’t think they’re
setting an example of, “Go out and do all this.” They’re just setting an example of, “Hey, I can present you
with images of this so it will hopefully stimulate
that so you don’t have to.” – (FBE) And finally, now that you’ve heard more about Marilyn Manson,
do you think you’ll be interested in checking out his music
and his upcoming album? – No and no. – No, I’m not gonna go home and be like, “Let me look up this person again.” No. – No, not at all. Respect, but no, that’s not for me. – I think I’d be interested, but I don’t know if I’ll actually do it. – I will say there’s
some songs that I enjoy. But the way that
Marilyn Manson presents them and that he presents himself,
it just doesn’t float my boat. – Yeah, definitely. It’s different, and it’s
energetic, and it’s fun. – Every single time he releases anything, I’m always like, “I’m gonna listen to it.” – He’s actually pretty enjoyable. He’s an interesting person, and I think that’s what
makes him so appealing. – Thanks, you beautiful people, for watching this episode of Teens React. – To see more, be sure to subscribe. There are new episodes
multiple times a week from all generations. – Thanks for watching. See you next time. – Hey, guys. It’s Ethan here,

  1. Happy Saturday FBE Viewers! This is an extra React video this week featuring the teens reacting to the often requested Marilyn Manson! New videos almost every day at 2pm PST! SUBSCRIBE THEN HIT THE ?! Also be sure to check out today's new video on the REACT channel! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef2cxeX0JIk – FBE Team

  2. This channel is an extremely weird concept. What would be even more interesting is if this show had more to do with introducing people of a certain group to Music from the Past that would apply to their Lifestyles. For instance If a bunch of Goth kid's or whatever that have never seen Manson were introduced to him to see about the past.
