Marilyn Manson vs. Slipknot – Classic Cage Match
The Marilyn Manson hot streak continues as ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)’ stands one victory away from entering the Loudwire Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame. Manson’s glam-stomp favorite just defeated Nine Inch Nails’ ‘We’re in This Together’ to advance to face another song from 1999.
That was also the year that a bunch of red jumpsuit-wearing masked rockers from Iowa named Slipknot truly made their mark on music and ‘Wait and Bleed’ was the song that introduced many to the group. The high-energy track has stood the test of time to become of the band’s most requested and beloved songs.
This promises to be a battle of rock heavyweights. Will Marilyn Manson take his place in the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame or will Slipknot start a streak of their own? Listen to the 1999 singles ‘I Don’t Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)’ and ‘Wait and Bleed’ in the players provided and then vote in the poll for the track you want to see win.
(This Classic Cage Match will run until Friday, Aug. 1, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
