Monday Music Video: The Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson

I think Marilyn Mansons second album, Antichrist Superstar, is one of the greatest albums ever. That album is a beautiful, hard rock explosion of nihilism that shows the destructive urge is a creative urge. I never listen to Manson when the album came out, and I don't think any of his subsequent outings are particularly good, but Antichrist Superstar stands out as one of my favorite albums.

The Beautiful People is a exploration into "the culture of beauty", and that culture's connection to Friedrich Nietzsche's theory of master-slave morality — the song's "weak ones", who are "always wrong", are oppressed by and exist solely to "justify [the existence of] the strong".
