Manson is best known for the music he made in the 1990s. Many people thought he was a bad influence on children because of his music.[4] Three of his band's albums have been certified platinum by the RIAA. Manson has been nominated for five Grammy Awards. Four of them were with his band. One of them was for working on Donda with Kanye West.

In February 2021, Manson was accused of sexual and physical abuse by many women and men, including his ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood.[5]
