Cake and Sodomy (3:46)

In 1990, a woman Marilyn Manson met at a McDonald’s in Fort Lauderdale invited Manson to spend a weekend with her in New York City. Upon discovering that the girl was using her sister’s ID because she was too young to work, Manson abandoned her, shortly after which he ran into two clubbers from South Florida. Manson spent the remainder of his stay in New York at the clubbers’ hotel room, where he stumbled on public-access channels, which were “a completely new phenomenon” to him. Manson “spent hours flipping through the station, watching Pat Robertson preach about society’s evils and then ask people to call him with their credit card number,” while “On the other channel, a guy was greasing up his cock with Vaseline and asking people to call and give him their credit card number.” This inspired Manson to grab the hotel notepad and begin penning the song’s lyrics.

Manson explains in his autobiography The Long Hard Road Out of Hell that “I had written other songs I thought were good, but “Cake and Sodomy” was more than just a good song. As an anthem for the hypocritical America slobbering on the tit of Christianity, it was a blueprint for our future message.”
