Marilyn Manson vs. Nine Inch Nails – Classic Cage Match
Marilyn Manson has made it two-for-two in the Loudwire Classic Cage Match. The shock-rocker’s ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)’ earned a decisive victory of Rob Zombie’s ‘Living Dead Girl’ in a battle of 1999 classics. Can Manson keep the streak alive? He’s facing off against an old frenemy this week.
Nine Inch Nails enter the Classic Cage Match with their hard driving 1999 single, ‘We’re in This Together.’ The track comes from the band’s ambitious double-disc offering ‘The Fragile.’ You can catch NIN this summer on their tour with Soudgarden. Dates can be found here.
Seeing Manson and Nine Inch Nails square off takes us back to the ’90s, where the groups famously toured together, with Trent Reznor showing the upstart Manson band support. That was followed by a few years of a strained relationship between the ’90s superstars before they eventually buried the hatchet.
