Do They Scare The Living Daylights Out Of You Too?

Halloween's just around the corner and everyone's busy choosing an outfit for that much awaited party. You want to get the outfit just right; after all, you don't want to look too tarty or too dull or too generic, right? Mephistopheles? Jason? That onryo from The Grudge? Nah! Those are way too overdone! Why not be a little musically inclined and pay tribute to some of the scariest musicians the world has ever seen?

In an article on its website, Billboard magazine has listed the 10 scariest musicians to date. The list includes artists like Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, GWAR, Insane Clown Posse, and (don't hold your breath) Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson! Apparently, Manson "outscared" Gaga by a margin of less than one percent in the poll conducted. I'll say!

Lady Gaga sure is scary, what with her insane make-up and outlandish fashion sense. I can never get over the perfectly disgusting idea she had of wearing a meat dress to the VMA's. What makes it more repulsive is the retaliatory statement issued by PETA ---- "Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn't want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots -- not too attractive, really." Ugh!
But the number one spot was bagged by none other than rocker Marilyn Manson. Frankly, a guy who derives his stage name from a serial killer can hardly be expected to look boy-band-cute. But Manson goes a step ahead of even good ol' Gene Simmons in scaring one out of their skin. He does deserve the honour of being the scariest of 'em all.
