Marilyn Manson  

One of the more controversial figures in metal, Marilyn Manson has parlayed his combination of shock-rock imagery and industrial-tinged metal into a successful career, complete with all the ups and downs and attention-grabbing headlines one might expect given his visual appearance and general moodiness. The band formed in Florida in 1989, and spent their formative years as Marilyn Manson And The Spooky Kids, releasing various private cassettes along the way, before attracting the attention of Trent Reznor, who eventually helped sign the band to Nothing Records. Musically, Nine Inch Nails is a clear influence, Manson fusing harsh guitars with electronics and a sinister edge similar to NIN. The member name convention (combining the first name of a female pop icon with the last name of a serial killer) is admittedly a tad clever. A band/career like this seems destined to burst into flames at some point, but as of now Marilyn Manson is doing quite well.
