I'm just curious if the current album cover (Manson with a large black hat) alludes to anything...it reminds me this poster: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/2c/Gallowwalker.jpg — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:25, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
I believe this bot is an error, because once i click the link, the only information in the supposed website is: 404: Not Found Sorry, but the content you requested could not be found. I'm deleting this message in the article. Salgado96 (talk) 22:23, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
- Also, please stop citing Mansonwiki. Wikipedia does not consider it (or any fan-administered wiki) as an acceptable source!
A quote of the singer's father is given extra attention (discussed at DYK). I find the creed proclaimed there extremely simple and not relevant to the music. Or is the music that extremely simple? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:20, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
LaBeouf and artwork
None of the three sources on the page directly support that LaBeouf will have any part in this album's artwork. I believe this could be a misinterpretation of the quote, "[we] talked about what kind of visuals he wanted on his album." As a director, LaBeouf would be interested to match the theme of the record with his "making-of" documentary. For example, if Manson's eight album is really dark, a director would want to know that so he could match that vibe in his video. Fezmar9 (talk) 17:00, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

We can't use youtube as a primary linked source. It doesn't matter if it is highly reliable. It needs to be reformatted to cite the interview itself, using the "cite interview" template. - User:Red_marquis — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:28, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Hits daily double have estimated Born Villians first week sales to be between 30 - 40k. Here is a link: http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/news/newsPage.cgi?news08961m01 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:36, 3 May 2012 (UTC)
Some sales info for the forthcoming commercial performance field:
- Born Villain debuted at #14 in the U.K. with first week sales of 6,933, according to Music Week
- Debuted at #18 on the main Oricon album chart in Japan, with first week sales of 5,825, while it dropped to #20 on its second week on the chart, with second week sales of 3,817 - which is actually his best second-week performance since The Golden Age of Grotesque in the country. Both EMDM and THEOL dropped out of the top 40 by its second week, so it's a pretty noteworthy stabilisation, I think.
- Debuted at #10 on U.S. Billboard album chart with sales of over 39,000, according to Loudwire, I'd suggest using this as the permanent source - since the Billboard website is notoriously buggy. A direct link from Billboard in the source would probably be dead by the end of the month.
