Manson:...you're gonna have a bunch of angry kids.
Some Guy In the Audience: Well when you do go out to a club, that, you just
gotta watch yourself whatever you do. You just can't 'speckt to go out there
and just dance and don't get touched and non-violent because that's what it is.
The music--
Donahue: I, I don't see how you--
Some Guy In the Audience: If you get the music inside your soul, anything can
happen. You don't play the music, you can't get it. It's the music.
Donahue: The music?
Parent: Music is dangerous.

Concerned Citizen: My sympathy for the parents...

    General Comment"We have this saying that when you are on certain types of drugs you are dancing with the one-legged man. That man is the one-legged black man who's always hopping around by the interstate near St. Charles Avenue, begging money. I wanted to take his artificial leg."
    -Marilyn Manson, in an interview with Tribe

    "I did have a Huggy Bear [character from Starsky & Hutch] doll. One of his legs fell off. That empty leg became a place where, when we were doing a lot of drugs on tour at one point, we would store the drugs in his empty leg. That's where the term dancing with the one-legged man on Smells Like Children came from."
    -Marilyn Manson, in an interview in Seconds with Boyd Rice
