Marilyn Manson - I Don't Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me) (Official Music Video)



The song garnered a mostly positive response from music critics, who complimented its catchiness and memorability. Critics noted similarities between "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)" and the music of David Bowie, particularly his song "Fame" (1975), as well as the work of Manson's contemporaries. The song's stance on drugs garnered differing interpretations; some critics felt it glamorized drug use, while others saw it as anti-drug. Its music video was directed by Paul Hunter, and features an androgynous Manson attached to a cross made of television sets and a series of vignettes. Critics praised the video's imagery and found it critical of both capitalism and the pharmaceutical industry. Commercially, the single peaked within the top 40 of Billboard's Alternative Songs and Mainstream Rock charts, as well as the national charts of New Zealand and Spain.




Marilyn Manson - I Don't Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me) (Official Music Video)



The music video for "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)" was directed by Paul Hunter,[24] who had previously directed the video for "The Dope Show".[25] Like Mechanical Animals, the video was inspired by the work of David Bowie.[26] Discussing the video's concept in 1999, Manson said "In the video I suggest TV and religion together as being the drug I'm talking about the most."[3] The video features constant contrasts between a saturated light color palette and a saturated dark color palette.[27] In the clip, Manson is shown attached to a cross made out of television sets. He wears white, androgynous clothing similar to Bowie's fashion, and appears to lack melanin.[27][26][28] His hair is fair and reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe's; alongside Charles Manson, Monroe served as the band's namesake.[26] Vignettes in the video depict a family with abnormally large eyes who are implied to be abusing drugs, Manson being chased by headless policemen, and a reality television program similar to The Jerry Springer Show. On the program, a woman is shown pregnant with a television set.[26]


is about the hollywood world of drugs, and a criticism to conservatism, and a awful life..."Norm life baby "we're white and oh so hetero and our sex is missionary"", a criticism to homophobia, racism and religion (in religion, missionay is the only sexual position accepted) "You and I are underdosed and we're ready to fallRaised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at allWe're taught to be nothing"a direct reference to "Brave new world" (in the book, a pill called soma is used to heal depression and other problems, but the truth is, that is used to control people and making them easier to control and monotonous), in this time, comparing them with the society. The pill or the "drugs" in the song are T.V., Magazines and all distractions of our normal life, their making us stupid only to make us easier to control."I don't like the drugs but the drugs like me"as i said before, the "drugs" are T.V., Magazines and all distractions of our normal life, you don't like them, but they like you, they want you to stay with them to make you stupid, is curious, because it refers to drugs too, how in world you don't like drugs, but, they get into you easily."Norm life baby "we're rehabbed and we're ready for our 15 minutes of shame""we are controlled by others and "15 minutes of shame", a parody to "15 minutes of fame", it refers how funless are fame and how stupid it has to be, to just be "famous"."There's a hole in our soul that we fill with dope. And we're feelin' fine"the most reference to "Brave new world" like i said before.The song talks about, how high society people are controlling us using drugs, TV, Internet, and how are changing and manipulating our brain.


In February 2018, Corgan unveiled plans for the "Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour," a 30th anniversary celebration of the Smashing Pumpkins which would feature only songs from the Pumpkins' first five albums (the good ones), like Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Along for the ride would be good ol' Smashing Pumpkins "golden age" drummer Jimmy Chamberlain and guitarist James Iha, along with some backing musicians. A notable omission: bassist D'arcy Wretzky, whom Corgan threw out of the band in the late '90s. Corgan's reason: his "distrust of her in the studio coupled with her apparent slow descent into insanity and/or drugs (take your pick)." 041b061a72
