    I love Mansonís vocals when he sings the chorus to the Minute of Decay for the second time. Perfect.

It is no more identical than any other of the many, many, many 'inspired by' versions of songs Manson has done, whether it be Beautiful People, Fight Song, Devour, Disassociative ... the list goes on.

    Personally, I am more surprised by how fans (and non fans) are always endlessly 'OMG THIS SONG IS EXACTLY LIKE..' as if he hasn't made a career out of bricolage.
    You call it hommage, another person would call it a direct rip off. Credit needs to be given when it's due. Guarantee you if someone did it to 'him', he'd see them in court.

    Yeh duh, insert here another explanation of the pointlessness of copyright up until the mid twentieth century. And Saturnalia is still less direct than half a dozen other songs he has written, it is not identical. Hah. Given they are no slouches in the court area, Radiohead should have been having a lot more of a heart attack for the last 20 years than they are. However he/his lawyers appease those who he takes from, it should be bottled.

    As a seasonal clinician part of the DWOD (Doctors Without Degrees) society, I would highly recommend that Manson mix his vodka with grapefruit juice, eat more pastas with lemongrass and rapeseed oils, stock up on products such as Emergen-C, Airborne gummies, as well as take up eating walnuts and blueberries prior to shows along with his ethanol spirit, nerve tonic elixirs.

    As both a Bauhaus and MM fan, I am legit confused why people think "Saturnalia" is a direct rip off of "Bela Lugosi," to the point of suggesting legal action could be taken. Inspired by? Sure. Evocative of? Sure. But play them back to back - they're very different, albeit related, animals.

    Exactly. Obviously it's inspired by, possibly even a homage, but it has a completely different structure and style. I'd say the only thing that sounds similar is the bassline.

    ^like

    By that definition The Birthday Party's Release the Bats would also run into trouble.
