Marilyn Manson Is Less Shocking (But No Less Rocking) Than Ten Years Ago

Circa 2000, Marilyn Manson was the biggest, scariest, darkest, weirdest rock star on the face of the planet. He was the devil incarnate, the voice in a troubled child's head, the savior of the unsalvageable.

He's come a long way, we've all come a long way, and now it's 2013. The Antichrist Superstar has gotten a little older, and his concerts aren't plagued by rioting Catholics like they used to be. But last night, he still managed to flood the Fillmore Miami Beach with thousands of glam-goth superfans, both young and old.

Even if you were a hipster coming to celebrate old times, you broke out the black for this one.
