These covers capture the essence of his music, each with a personal artistic spin to them as well. Golden Years by Marilyn Manson Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson covered this 1976 tune by Bowie on his 1998 album Mechanical Animals.
We’ve come up with a list celebrating some of the best and most unique Bowie covers out there. This cover has Manson’s signature dark, eerie, and edgy sound rather than Bowie’s original upbeat and funky sound.
The two bands played this cover live during the Taste of Chaos tour in 2005, later releasing a studio recorded version for the cause.
Although the world has just lost musical legend David Bowie, 69, on Sunday, his legacy lives on through his music.
A wide range of artists have paid tribute to the icon himself through covers of his music over the years.
When you really think of it, Manson and Bowie have quite a bit in common: they both had a glam rock era, both went through phases of their performing career where they wore stage makeup, both have songs about sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, and they both experienced an androgynous phase too.
So it seems it’s only natural that he covered a Bowie classic! Under Pressure by The Used and My Chemical Romance In 2005, The Used and My Chemical Romance teamed up to cover this anthem, originally by David Bowie and Queen, in order to raise money for charity.This is his tribute, and it does the song justice for sure. Their interpretation of this song has been played on multiple occasions, including at a rooftop performance during the South by South West festival in 2013, and at the i Heart Radio Theater for Rock 105.3 radio in 2012.
