Marilyn Manson Wins Rock Album of the Year in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards
You voted, we tabulated and, in the end, Marilyn Manson had an incredibly decisive victory for Rock Album of the Year in the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards. The singer’s ‘Born Villain’ album took home a whopping 31.7 percent of the overall vote.
‘Born Villain,’ which featured the hit lead single ‘No Reflection’ and the follow-up tracks ‘Slo-Mo-Tion’ and ‘Hey, Cruel World …,’ led Manson to a landslide victory, with Stone Sour’s ‘House of Gold & Bones, Pt. 1′ being the closest competitor at just shy of 19 percent of the vote. The only other act to receive a double-digit percentage was Halestorm’s ‘The Strange Case Of …,’ which placed third with 14.5 percent of the final tally.
Add in winning Loudwire’s Rock Video of the Year for ‘No Reflection’ and 2012 was a pretty good year for Manson. The musician will kick off 2013 on the road with Butcher Babies, continuing the promotion of the ‘Born Villain’ disc. See the full voting results below and click the red button for the next category:
