    Watching the old episode where the Jesus Twins want Howard to put their song on the soundtrack to "Private Parts." At one point, Howard tells them he doesn't listen to their style because he likes metal. Has Howard ever listened to metal? Funny.

    Fact: Howard was the first person to turn me onto Marilyn Manson.

    Howard also said Jonah Hill's new movie is great. The NY Post said it's a piece of shit.

    Yup, I remember when he was playing that 'Sweet Dreams' cover song when that album first came out.

    He was also the first to turn me onto Eminem.

    Manson blew up with 'Sweet Dreams are Made of This' and Howard took credit for it.

    Manson was never a metal band. If you look at his influences and songs they covered its all non metal acts. I guess they were heavy because of the time period and who was in the band influenced that direction but MM is not a metal band in the classic sense. Manson didnt grow up listening to Slayer or Metallica, he was listening to The Cure and Depeche Mode.

    It was trendy and cool to be a "rocker" back then. That was his persona. When rock music died out he abandoned ship.

    Compared to metal bands like Slayer, Manson is definitely not. I don't own a single Manson album, but I have to admit some of his songs are catchy.

    White Zombie was considered metal yes but the 90's were a weird time for metal. White Zombie started out as a noise rock band and they jumped on the 'alternative metal' 90s bandwagon. They have heavy riffs but again to me the alternative influence was bigger than the metal influence if you listen closely. If youre talking 'legit' 90s metal', Pantera carried the flag and everyone else was just piggybacking IMO.

    Seems like alot of the so called metal bands from the 90's put out music that had heavy riffs (like you said), were heavy in studio engineering and mostly melodic. Some of it wasn't bad, but I wouldn't call it metal either.

    So MM was not a metal band, because he used to listen to Depeche Mode.

    The heaviest song on his Metal Mania play list was from The Black Album. Also The Ocean was on there four times.

    I think he could be put into the category of hard rock or metal. Lots of metal heads I've known over the years don't accept melody driven, heavy rock as metal. Depends how you define it.
