Phil Donahue - Marilyn Manson / Moshing

Another interesting documentary on Marilyn Manson and moshing. The term moshing has been derived from the violent dancing, that the audience takes part in at shows throughout alternative, metal and hardcore music. In general, there is a lot of criticism towards the lack of security at shows, causing a fatal casualty involving a boy losing his life due to lack of oxygen and the amount of people in such a confined space. That aside, there is a direct negativity towards the voice of Manson and his beliefs throughout his music, focussing directly on the negative side is something that can been seen across this sub-culture. Anything out of the norm is cast aside as wrong, without giving it a chance to show the real positivity that comes out from it all.
