No. 32: Marilyn Manson, ‘The Fight Song’ – Top 21st Century Hard Rock Songs
“I’m not a slave to a god that doesn’t exist / And I’m not a slave to a world that doesn’t give a s–t.” You’d be hard-pressed to find a mainstream song today that challenges our society like Marilyn Manson‘s ‘The Fight Song’ did in 2000.
Released as the second single from Manson’s praised work ‘Holywood,’ the Antichrist Superstar brought a brass-knuckled and poetic work that attacked the sensationalist tactics of America’s mainstream media. In 2012, Manson’s words still ring true as we turn on our computers, radios and television sets.
