Marilyn Manson Enters the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame
Congrats to Marilyn Manson, the latest entrant into the Loudwire Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame. The rocker enters thanks to his 1999 glam-stomp rocker ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me),’ which earned four successive Classic Cage Match wins to accomplish the feat.
It all started with a drug-related matchup with two-time Classic Cage Match winner Buckcherry, with Manson eeking out a victory over the band’s breakout song ‘Lit Up.’ Rob Zombie’s ‘Living Dead Girl’ came next, but showed little signs of life against Manson.
Then came Nine Inch Nails with their ’99 single ‘We’re in This Together,’ but once again Manson pulled out a decisive victory. The final matchup, though, would be a tough one. ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs’ earned just shy of 54 percent of the tally in taking the final victory over Slipknot’s ‘Wait and Bleed.’
Marilyn Manson now joins, The Offspring, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Disturbed and Megadeth as the initial members of the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame. Kudos to Marilyn Manson for running the table through 1999. Let’s give one last big show of love to ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)’ by playing it one more time in the player below. Look for a new Classic Cage Match starting soon.
