MANSON RELATED MUSIC
Here are some links to Manson related music which you can purchase through
Amazon.Com (which is one of the largest book dealers on the internet). The
sales are handled totally by Amazon and not by this website. To the best of my knowledge, Manson makes no money from any of these
sales. Some of Manson's music can be downloaded at the
Manson Music blog.
the Way Alive" by Charles Manson. This is Manson's 1967 demo
recordings before he recorded "Lie."
The Love and Terror Cult" by Charles Manson. This is the famous
album with the cover that looks like the Life magazine cover. The
copyrights are supposedly owned by Phil Kaufman but he says he doesn't receive
any money. I'd assume all copies are probably bootlegs except the original
Jams" by the Manson Family. This was apparently recorded during the
trials. The songs were written by Manson but he didn't perform on this
double-CD. Clem (Steve Grogan) steps in for Manson, though. Many
other Family members also sing and perform.
by Charles Manson. Various songs secretly recorded by Manson in prison.
If it's too pricey at
Amazon then you might try
Speaks" by Charles Manson. A CD of Manson speaking on various topics.
Beatles" by The Beatles. This is commonly known as "The
White Album" and supposedly greatly influenced the Family. You all
already know that story. By the way, a
anniversary edition is also available at the same price. Other Beatle
albums are also cited in Bugliosi's book, but I'll skip on mentioning them here.
by The Beach Boys. This one has the Manson song "Cease to Exist"
(under the title "Never Learn Not to Love") with some lyric changes.
Rising" by Bobby Beausoleil. A soundtrack to Kenneth Anger's film
recorded in prison. This also contains a second disc of rarities including
Beausoleil's early work with Orkustra and the Magick Powerhouse of Oz, along
with outtakes from the prison sessions.
Everyone and his brother seems to have written a song related to Charles
Manson. It's impossible to list all of them here. Some are by well
known groups and some are by unknowns. Here are some of the more
"On the Beach" by Neil Young. This one has a song called "Revolution Blues"
which seems to be about the Manson Family. Interestingly, one of Manson's followers was
reportedly a groupie of Buffalo Springfield. Another Young song ("Mansion
on the Hill") is rumored to be about Manson, also. Neil Young once said of
Manson "He had this kind of music that nobody else was doing. He would sit down
with a guitar and start playing and making up stuff, different every time. It
just kept comin' out, comin' out. Then he would stop and you would never hear
that one again. Musically, I thought he was very unique. I thought he had
something crazy, something great. He was like a living poet." 
Manson Family: An Opera" by John Moran. An opera about
Manson?! At the Lincoln Center? Strange and interesting. Click on this and Amazon.Com has some online samples
you can hear before buying.
Spaghetti Incident" by Guns N' Roses. This originally had an unlisted 13th
song at the very end which was written by Manson. Apparently newer copies
have removed the Manson song. There was a big stink
over this due to Manson possibly making money off of it (he had written the
material before the murders and after he had been released from prison).
Charlie could have made $62,000 for every million copies sold, but in the end,
it was decided the money would go to Frykowski's son (who has passed
away since, so proceeds now go to Frykowski's grandchildren). Axl Rose has
appeared in concert (and the video "Estranged") wearing a Manson
Downward Spiral" by Nine Inch Nails. Partially recorded in the
living room of the Tate murder house. This home "studio" is
credited as "Le Pig of Beverly Hills." Songs include
"Piggy" and "March of the Pigs." Recall that the word
"PIG" was written in blood on the front door of this house...
by Nine Inch Nails. A video was filmed in the Tate house of the song "Gave Up" (which appears on this EP)
and it appears on the video "Closure".
Also note, that Trent Reznor (who is Nine Inch Nails), started his
own record label and quickly signed up Marilyn Manson. (Thanks to Gizzo99
for clarifying this info).
"Assassins" by Stephen Sondheim. This musical
soundtrack includes "Unworthy of Your Love" by Greg Germann which is partially about Fromme's admiration and devotion to Manson.
of an American Family" by Marilyn Manson. Well, this band is
named after Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. To top it off, this
includes "My Monkey" which steals four lines of lyrics from Charlie's
by System of a Down. Includes "ATWA" which is
about Manson. The album's booklet also has a "thanks" to him. The CD
booklet has photos of the band in the studio. In the background you can
see a Manson poster. 
by Lemonheads. A remake of Manson's "Your Home is Where You're
Happy" is included. There's also a Manson photo and various thank-you's
to infamous Family members.
by Lemonheads. This one has "Ballarat" which is reportedly about
Manson. Click on this title to hear a snippet at Amazon.Com. Group
member Evan Dando even posed on MTV's "120 Minutes" holding a copy of
Rest for the Wicked" by Ozzy Osbourne. Contains "Bloodbath
in Paradise" which is about Manson.
"Kill Eugene" by Eugene Chadbourne. This album features references to Charlie
as well as a song called "How can You Kill Me, I'm Already Dead", the lyrics of
which are from an entire Manson speech. 
"Tin Omen" by Skinny Puppy. This song contains many Manson samples ("The police
used to watch over the people, now they're watchin' the people", etc...).
"Cielo '69" by The Jackalopes is all about Manson. The chorus: "Come on down
Cielo Drive, We'll all have a great ol' time, Hack everybody into little pieces
and throw 'em all outside..." The singer also wears t-shirts bearing Charlie's
face, one which reads, "Remember Kids, Charlie Loves you" on the front and
"Role-Model for Today's Youth" on back and another that says "Official Member:
Charlie Fan-club" as well as one that looks like the 70's TV show Charlie's
Angels' logo with "They work for me, my name's Charlie!" 
White Zombie uses a lot of Manson quotes and related subject matter (Rob Zombie
always puts an X on his forehead as well as the foreheads of his cartoon
drawings). The most notable example is on their album "Astro
in the song "Real Solution #9", where they use a quote from
Patricia Krenwinkel from her interview with Diane Sawyer ("I'm already
dead..."). [1, 10]
"You Give Love a Bad Name" by GG Allin and the Holy Men contains a cover of
Manson's "Garbage Dump" (Allin also wore a leather jacket in his early years
with a big Manson face on back). 
Phil Anselmo of Pantera wears Charles Manson T-shirts onstage as well as
prison-style blue button-down shirts with the name tag Manson and Charlie's
prison number. He has also grown his hair long and wears a beard just like
Worlock by Skinny Puppy. A song on their '89 (20th anniversary of Tate/LaBianca)
album entitled "Rabies". Although the title may be a reference to Manson, the
midpoint of the song is marked by a sample of Charles Manson himself singing
"Helter Skelter" with Al Jourgensen (of Ministry) playing the main guitar riff.
"Charlie's Family" by Download. The soundtrack to the Jim VanBebber
film of the same name. Both a film and soundtrack that tells the tale of the
family during their time together (not including Charlie himself, although he is
in the film). 
Innocent" by Redd Kross. Includes a remake of Manson's
"Cease to Exist" plus another song entitled "Charlie".
"Dreams Less Sweet" by Psychic TV. In 1983, they remade Manson's
"Never Say Never to Always" under the new title "Always is Always." 1983 Some
Bizarre Records. On another album they did a song called "Roman P." [3, 4]
Moon Rising" by Sonic Youth. This includes the song "Death
Valley 69" about you know who. This song was recorded with Lydia
"The Crow" by Various Artists. The movie soundtrack includes "After the
Flesh" by "My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult." The band's name could
easily be inspired by the Manson Family. The song begins with a piece of
an interview by Squeaky. 
Baby Burn" by The Electric Hellfire Club. Includes "Black Bus," a song apparently inspired
by Manson and crew. 
As stated above, many other groups have also recorded songs related to
Charles Manson. It's probably impossible to list them all.
