If Mariah Carey is the Queen of Christmas, Marilyn Manson might just be the opposite. Maybe the Burgermeister Meisterburger to Carey’s Kris Kringle?
So what happens if they join forces? What if one of the most joyous songs in history got a dark injection of cultural criticism from the Antichrist Superstar singer? Thanks to Bill McClintock on YouTube, we no longer have to wonder or sleep, ever again.
With the twinkling keys and bouncing beat of the 1994 classic backing the guttural groans of Manson, the two have been intertwined for a mashup that’s in the spirit of the season. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and “The Beautiful People” seems like an odd combination, but they actually mix to create the most damning Mariah Carey song in history and the first Marilyn Manson song with sleigh bells.
This year Mariah Carey is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her holiday hit with a deluxe edition of her Merry Christmas album and a special tour. The song is estimated to make Mariah over a million dollars each year.
