Playlist enhancer: Marilyn Manson's "Beautfiul People"

I like all sorts of music, from hard rock and heavy metal, both current and older stuff, to 80s music to Spanish rock and Mexican music. So many songs can find their way onto my iPod and I'd be fine with them.

But bands, well, I have basically a handful of bands and/or artists that I will go out and buy their new CD without really worrying whether I'm going to like it or now.

I would say Marilyn Manson does not fall into that category. In fact, I've never bought a Marilyn Manson CD before. I don't know, just not my style. I don't mind the look, it's just the music didn't ever really grab me.

Except for this song. This is a fantastic song. The rhythm is great, the guitars are nice and heavy and this just has a feel of a song that can get you riled up in a good way.

I don't know how many times I've gone to this song during my 42-minute interval run (which hereafter will be known as The Interval), during the late 2-minute sprint. I'm tired by that point, usually drenched in sweat, last thing I want to do is hit it hard for two minutes. But this song helps me build up some mental steam before the harsh two-minute sprint.

I've never been a big Marilyn Manson fan either, but this is a good tune.

Ehh...MM never really did it for me, either. This song IS an exception, but a weak one. MORE METALLICA!!!

I like a few Manson songs for running. The Fight Song is also a good one.
