after researching i can not find a song called the day love died by marilyn so im gonna delete that

Okay, on every album of Mansons, it says "many critics consider this to be his least successful album". Could we have this ACTUALLY ASSESSED? (talk) 05:29, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Why does "GOAG" lead here when the actual initials are GAOG? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:46, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Isn't the actual title of the song "Thaeter"? The spelling "Theater" appears twice in the article and I believe it is wrong. Trilby*foxglove (talk) 14:13, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

4 million sold?[edit]

Where's the data in MTV Spain? The reference only links to the MTV Spain site. Searching for MM there also doesn't yield MM's record sales. -Red marquis (talk) 02:12, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Sprucing up the article[edit]

Just looked over the GA assessment of this article and I had similar problems when I nominated Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) a few months back so I believe I may offer some suggestions on how to improve this page. Simply put, it needs a healthy section on its Development, Composition, Release (+cover art and formats subsections), Promotion and singles, more extensive Critical reception section, Accolades (if it had any) and finally, a brief synopsis section on the Grotesk Burlesk Tour. Charts and certification is already completed. To achieve FA status, we'll just have to add a Recording and production section under Development. -Red marquis (talk) 12:46, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Good job on improving the page Salgado96, however, this article still suffers from a deficit of sources. Here are a couple of highly reliable sources that would be useful for fleshing out the album's development, promotion, etc. sections.
  1. VH1 news feed on MM from the Antichrist Superstar days to today
  2. compilation of magazine interviews from The Golden age of Grotesque era
  3. Manson Barred from Six Flags
  4. BBC Music The Golden Age Of Grotesque Review
  5. Helnwien Interview w/ Manson

btw, don't link the actual webpage on provider module, just use the cite journal template and fill in the blanks. Most of the info on that is found on the right side panel of the interviews. -Red marquis (talk) 21:32, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

The article is, sadly, very fanfacty. Needs a major overhaul. -Red marquis (talk) 10:52, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

Lily & Pat[edit]

Does anyone know the full names of the 2 women who joined the band onstage during the tour? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:29, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

I think this sort of info belongs on the Grotesk Burlesk Tour's own wikipage (if only someone would create that page). The section on this article about the tour should only provide a cursory summary. -Red marquis (talk) 10:55, 7 May 2011 (UTC)
