    My InterpretationThis song is obviously mocking the mainstream music industry today.

    Below he seems to be saying that this is all they sing about these days. Where has the real music disappeared into a sex, party driven society?

    "Babble babble bitch bitch
    Rebel rebel party party
    Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
    Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
    Stick your STUPID SLOGAN in:
    Everybody sing along.
    Babble babble bitch bitch
    Rebel rebel party party
    Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
    Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
    Stick your STUPID SLOGAN in:
    Everybody sing along,"

    Below I think Marilyn Manson is basically admiting that he is making song about how there is nothing left to say when people keep repeating their monotonous shit and how eventually the "good" music will fade into the background.

    "Everything has been said before
    There's nothing left to say anymore
    When it's all the same
    You can ask for it by name."

    General CommentTo me this song is about consumerism in general

    “Everything has been said before
    There's nothing left to say anymore
    When it's all the same
    You can ask for it by name”

    This part talks about how nothing is original anymore
    And how he is not saying anything new just repackaged
    .nihilism



    This next to verses are the slogan the pitch. talking about the message isn’t selling the message it’s the package or the commercial that really matters.
    You give it the catchy slogan and a little sex and you can have someone buy something they are diametrically opposed to (Jewish persons / Nazism)

    The next part is about the advertisers flaunting their power in front of you
    It’s new(he already told us nothings new anymore)
    Do you want it, yes
    Do you know what it is, no
    But you want it anyway yes
    Why because we told you, that you wanted it

    General CommentIt amazes me how everyone commenting says that this song doesn't have a meaning, that it's just mindless headbanging. You say that this song was written for stupid people, but you clearly aren't intelligent enough to realize just what this song means.

    The song is about the negative aspects of today's society. Sex, drugs, alcohol, gangs, all of those things; it's saying how nowadays more and more people are throwing their life away.

    "And now it's "you know who"
    I got the "you know what"
    I stick it "you know where"
    You know why, you don't care."

    That part reflects how all anyone ever talks about anymore is sex.

    Song MeaningThis song is definitely about how they moved into a new era, and will not make music like they did before this. That era is over, they finished three concept albums that moved in a trilogy. They turned their creativity in a new direction. And they're not looking back.

    General CommentI think this song is about modern day music and how it's all about sex, violence, partying, etc. It's saying how it is all the same, the music never changes or has any meaning to it whatsoever.

    "Babble babble bitch bitch
    Rebel rebel party party
    Sex sex sex and don't forget the "violence"
    Blah blah blah got your lovey-dovey sad-and-lonely
    Stick your stupid slogan in,
    Everybody sing along"

    I think this is giving an example of what music (probably rap, pop, hip-hop, etc.) is about. They are just "babbling" on and on, it's emotionless music.

    At the same time though, I see this song being about drugs or even sex. The "new shit" is the drugs.

    "And now it's "you know who"
    I got the "you know what"
    I stick it "you know where"
    You know why, you don't care."

    Basically, he's the 'you know who' (the drug dealer), he has the 'you know what' (the drugs), he sticks it 'you know where' (possibly a needle or something), they know that why they are taking it and they know it could be dangerous but at the time they don't care. I also think this song could be about sex... he has the 'you know what, he sticks it you know where', etc. I doubt it but it's possible.

    General CommentVery appropriate title. I can listen to the first 31 seconds over and over. This is rock 'n roll.

    General Commentmarilyn manson's "suttle" (although, this one's just plain fuckin' obvious) lyrics directed towards his less intellectual fans makes him pretty fuckin cool++ in my books.

    do you even realise he's mocking people like you in this song? it's great.

    i can just imagine him and skold trying to make this song; 'poppy' (ie 'hit' style song) catchy tune, along with lyrics that the average listener would have no clue, here words like 'motherfucker', 'new shit', 'sex', and think its rad.

    i'd kill to be at some stupid 'goth' party (generalising 'goths', some are elite cool) where they're all singing this to be 'cool'. i think i'd probably piss my pants.

    General CommentI agree with the second interperation...
    I think that most of the CD is like that, as well.
    I'm not sure if I should embrace it for what it is
    or dislike it for its simplicity and at times, seeminly idiocy.

    General CommentI think rather than being directed towards the fans in general, this is towards the 'fans'.The people who have no idea what he's about or dont really know much about him. Now, I'm not saying I'm a person who does feel I understand his music completely because I am not that much of a follower of his. I do think this song is more for those people who act like they love him and adore him completely but have no idea what he is about. I do agree with you Karl, most definately.
