Music sample

"Mobscene", stylized as "mOBSCENE", is a song by American group Marilyn Manson. It was released in April 2003 as the lead single from the album The Golden Age of Grotesque. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance, but lost out to Metallica's "St. Anger."


The lyrics and music have been compared to the Faith No More track "Be Aggressive" from 1992 with criticism aimed at Manson for their track being too similar to the Faith No More original.

Critical reception[edit]

Many critics have also compared lines in this song to the TV gameshow in the 2000 film, Requiem for a Dream, starring Jared Leto ("Be excited, be, be excited...").[citation needed]
