Marilyn Manson vs. Rob Zombie – Classic Cage Match
Congrats to Marilyn Manson, as ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)’ won a tight Classic Cage Match battle over defending champs Buckcherry and their song ‘Lit Up.’ Manson ended up with about 53 percent of the final tally for his glam-stomp filled track. Manson will now get a chance to defend his title against a familiar foe, his onetime tour mate Rob Zombie.
In 1999, Zombie was rolling with his debut solo disc, ‘Hellbilly Deluxe,’ when ‘Living Dead Girl’ hit the airwaves as the album’s second single. The chugging cut became an instant live favorite and remains one of the most popular songs in Zombie’s catalog.
It’s a horrific match-up! So who do you want to win — Marilyn Manson’s ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs’ or Rob Zombie’s ‘Living Dead Girl’? Take a listen to both 1999 singles in the players below and vote for your favorite in the poll provided.
